Mortgages are the usual route when buying a house. However, some are not qualified to get one, especially with qualifications like acceptable credit scores, income and bank requirements, and adequate down payment. Of course, mortgages also charge interest that only increases monthly payments in the long run. Fortunately, it is possible to buy a house with a loan. These 4 out-of-the-box solutions can help you buy a house without one.
🏬Live Off a Single Income
You can choose to pay cash for your home. If your household has two decent incomes, consider living off one income for some years. You can save enough money to buy a house cash by keeping your lives as simple as you can. Living simple if easier said than done, though. To make things work, you can rent out a room in your apartment or house to help with the expenses. Other options include sharing a car, spending less on entertainment or skipping vacations.
🏦Sell Your House and Buy Another One
If you are considering downsizing and you have equity in your current house, you can sell your house, make an income and move to a more affordable location. This is a good move if your current home is located in an expensive area, and you are thinking of moving to a new place where you can get more from your money. For instance, you can sell your current property and get $150,000 profit. This is the exactly amount you will pay in cash for a new place in another area.
🏥Get an Investor
Some people are just looking for an investment, instead of a primary residence. Getting mortgage for an investment property can be tedious because many lenders require a higher credit score and higher down payment. If you are looking to get one, look for an investor to make the purchase and pay for any improvements of the house. Once the place has been rehabilitated to make a profit, you can split the proceeds with the investor.

You are the owner with the seller acting as the bank where you will make monthly payments. Being the legal owner, you can refinance or sell the house.
