Has your son approached a bank for a pre-approval? Sellers may not wish to provide financing for whatever reason he does not want to use a bank. From a seller's perspective, why would they like to wait 30 years to get paid while risking default all that time?

If your son has concerns or misconceptions about financing, I would be happy to help, otherwise I hope he can find what he wants.

That is a pretty big spread. Owner financed homes are few and far between but they are out there. I have several people I work with here in the Austin area that aggregate these listings. I would find an agent in your area that is very familiar with these types of properties as you can easily get taken advantage of.

Always close in a title company! If you have any general questions please let me know. I can also recommend an agent in your area that has experience with owner financed properties. Good luck with your search.

Always use a Realtor for these types of purchases they can be rather "tricky "

It is going to be really hard to find something that will work. Owner financing is very rare and to find one that meets your son's needs will be like finding a needle in a haystack.
