Land contracts are few and far between. Most buyers seeking a land contract are doing so because of credit issues, and folks that own their property outright generally don't want to carry a note for someone who the banks don't want to lend money too - that just means it will be tougher to pay off the land contract when it is due. Most sellers just want to sell it outright as opposed to being in a landlord-type situation.
There are some properties out there, but you're not going to have your pick of the litter. My opinion is that if you can't get the exact house that you want you'd be better off renting until you can qualify for a mortgage and take your pick of homes. Land contracts generally require a down payment, and what if you wind up not liking the house? You can give it back to the seller but then you are out any money you've given them.
