Please be careful with this, as some are looking to take advantage of you. Not all mind you, but please be careful. I would check your city Craigslist and sure you will have many to choose from.

Good luck and please consider having either an agent or attorney review before you buy property.

Jenn, your best bet is to be working with a realtor, because there is a search option on our multiple listing service that will automatically send to you all owner financed properties. A realtor has to set it up for you, however. Remember, it doesn't cost you anything to have a realtor do this for you--most of us are glad to provide the service.

Happy house hunting!!

Jenn:

Owner financing is not easy to find, specially in this difficult financial times. Your best bet is to do a search for "For Sale by Owner" sites and directly contact the sellers. You may also try searching "Lease to own", but be cautious of the terms of the contract, which usually require an upfront Option Fee, and do not give a fix purchase price at the end. No matter what way you go, get an attorney to read anything before you sign.

Hope this helps.

The agents who have said buyer beware are right on the money. There are a number of scams and lease options that are not favorable for the leasee. The best advice would be to consult a lender, if your not able to buy now, they should be able to help you come up with a plan to do so. A Realtor can help locate owner financing in the MLS.
