Home Buying in 44333>Question Details

Brooke Bird, Home Buyer in Akron, OH

I was wondering if there is a way to find an investor to purchase a home and lease it back to me via land contract or lease to own option?

I've heard that it is possible to do this but I don't know the first place to look.

Are you aware when it comes time to pay off the investor a mortgage underwriter is going to follow their rules, not the contract you have with the investor? Fix your credit issue and then buy your own home, good luck,

I have investors who will do this.

Keep in mind that an investor is taking a risk and needs to make a profit in order to do this, so the price you will pay the investor is likely to be a little higher than the price she pays for the house, and the interest rate is likely to be higher than what would be available from a traditional lender.

Call, email or text me to get further information.

Brooke, before we can figure this out, we need to know: how much down payment do you have, and what's your credit score?
