Drawing up a land contract for selling my property. Is there a standard ammortization term that is used for a 3yr balloon land contract?

There are a lot of moving parts in a land contract. Do you own the house outright?

I agree with Don: it's negotiable. Some sellers opt for a shorter amortization period rather than a balloon, others opt for both, and some sellers opt for no balloon with a 30-year note. Your terms will depend on your and your buyer's needs.

It's all negotiable.


Since most loans are 30 year loans, many such agreements are based on a 30 year amortization.

Also, just standard advice but please make sure a lawyer familiar with land contracts reviews your paperwork.

Hope that helps.
