First let me tell you that in order to answer your question I had to make a few assumptions. #1- The $85k you are paying is cash from your pocket, #2- The property is owned out right, free and clear of encumbrances, #3- You will not be placing financing on the property other than the notes you will carry for your buyer.
Having said that, here is what you might be able to do. If you are carrying a loan of $90k at 8%, your payments will be approx $660 per month. At the end of 7 years (84 months,) your balloon will be roughly $83,229. Since you don’t have any debt service to pay, you have some room for maneuvering here. You may want to split your single loan into two loans, or even three loans and sell the second place loan to an investor to raise the cash you need.
Here’s how that would work. Instead of creating one loan for $90k, create three loans for $30k each, with your desired interest of 8%. That would give you a second place loan at a total of 60%ltv (for the second place position, 90% for the third which won’t sell,) with monthly payments of $220 per month, and a balloon of $27743 after 7 years. That gives you 84 payments of $220 that you could sell to somebody. You could offer those payments for $6000 at a yield greater than 40%. And, you would still collect $440 per month on the other two loans, plus you would still collect your balloon payment in full (because you didn’t sell the balloon, just the payments) at the end of seven years.
This is just my two cents, though.
Good luck and good investing,
