Calling agents who work that portion of the market in your local area is probably your best bet. They will know who's still carrying contracts and what the terms will be. There are usually homes on the market where the seller will carry a contract as well.
See if a family member can buy in there name for you and transfer into your name later. No lender is going to touch you for 2 to 5 years unfortunately.
