A more important question to ask yourself, should you take on more debt if you haven’t been able to pay the ones you already have?

Second question, also for you, is it a good move to try and circumvent the system (mortgage guidelines) that is in place to protect you? Good luck,

I do not offer legal or tax advice, if you need answers from an attorney or CPA find one knowledgeable in your local market.

Its up to the seller. I would suggest that you have your all fund in place and your capability to pay the monthly payment. But you need to know where you want to live. and how much is the house your looking for. I can Find an Owner finance. It depend. I have to find the seller first and negotiate for you. Hope will help you this answer.

Yes, it only depends on the owner's requirements. Be sure to have your attorney review any legal documents and assure that they are recorded. Title needs to be transferred to your name to protect yourself against bogus owner-carries.

Good luck!

It all depends on the OWNER.
Sometimes they would overlook the credit score with a good job history and also with a large
deposit upfront.

Good luck and hoping this helps ... browse me web and links here under.
