There are currently 5 homes available in your zip code that are advertised for sale on land contract. If you would be interested in having me send you the list of these homes, please email or call me.

Other places to look for land contract homes would be yard signs that are advertising the home for sale by owner, your local newspaper and Craig's List. When dealing with a homeowner directly and not using an agent, it would be critical to get an attorney involved. Owners may try selling their home on land contract even though they still have a mortgage. Only homes that do not have a mortgage can be sold on a land contract. The reason for this is that all mortgages have a "due on sale" clause and a land contract would be considered a sale. This could force the lender to make the entire balance of the mortgage due immediately.

And remember to email or call me if you would like the list of land contract homes that I found in your area.

Land contracts, contract for deed, rent to own all typically tend to be private sales without RE Agents.
Since agents are typically not involved, this agent driven site may not be your best venue. Check newspapers or Craig's list for private rentals that may lead to your answers.

Best wishes, Jim
