Help the community by answering this question:


Do you know what a LAND CONTRACT is?

That means that the SELLER is financing you; they are holding the paper.
Your Reltor can search for homes that the Seller is willing to finance the Buyer.

There is no Pre-Approval for this.
The Interest rate and terms are totally at the descretion of the Principles.

Good luck and may God bless

Very carefully! Land contracts must be negotiated, so you do not have a huge interest rate and down payment. you can access my web site for all the current listings and my contact information. Its FREE.

I agree with Ron, will add that if you do not qualify for a traditional mortgage any move you make to try and circumvent the guidelines that are in place to protect you is possibly cutting your own throat. Do you know how land contracts are reviewed by a mortgage company when you try to pay off the seller? Or think you can never take title and sell it to someone else? Good luck,
