Home Buying in 28139>Question Details

Charles, Home Buyer in 28139

Want to buy a home direct from owner and the owner finances it.

Asked by Charles, 28139 Tue Aug 16, 2011

Currently rent the home (3 years now). Wish to purchase the seller's owned home with the seller financing us. Would prefer a normal transaction rather than a Land Contract.

Possible and if so, what steps and requirements are needed?

That's easy enough. Any decent real estate lawyer can set it all up.

The Seller wants to Finance you because he will make money on the financing.
If you choose not to go thru him, he may change the deal.
One way to find out; talk to another Lender and see if he renigs.

Maybe you're better off one way; maybe the other.
As long as you have a good Contract; why not.

Usually when this question is asked, the buyer can't get a conventional mortgage. May not be the case here though.

What advantage for the seller to do this? If the seller mortgages the property rather than a land contract, the seller would need a hefty down payment to minimize the risk. If the buyer has the down payment, then, why not mortgage through a lender?

Charles you nee dto make sure the current woner doesnt have amortgage, they cant sell to you via a normal sale if they dont pay it off. You should seek the advice of an attorney or buyer agent experienced with this type of purchase

Find a good real estate attorney and explain your desires. The attorney can draft the appropriate documents and assist with the closing. The trickiest aspect here will be the financing agreement.

Good Luck
