Your realtor should be able to search for current homes which are offered for sale on land contract. My question to you though is, why would you want to purchase on Land Contract? Interest rates on LC's are usually higher which can means hundreds more per month.... more

Buying a home on a land contract can be a very good way to own a home if you have bad credit. One of the main difficulties here is that property owners will no doubt do a credit check to see how risky you are.
My suggestion is this. First, make sure that you make all of your payments on time for at least 6 months. Meanwhile, try to save as much as possible to put as a down payment on a land contract.
Most land contracts only require a small down payment ($1,000 +/-) but if you can put down more then you show the owner that you are serious. Probably your biggest challenge, however, will be in locating a seller who will accept a land contract. Start by asking owners of homes that are available for rent. Another option which is similar to a land contract is a rent to own... but that is another discussion.... more

In any market, but specifically in this current challenging market, I have found that buyers and seller alike have really valued hard facts about the market. Regardless of what a seller wants to hear, I have found that sellers value the honest truth about the market. If you can grab a hold of relevant stats and figures about the market for a seller's specific property, you will also be able to advise buyers very well too.
As an example, my team subscribes to Big House Data's monthly stats and quarterly inventory packages for Washtenaw County.

Best of luck! You appear to be heading in the right direction, if your question is any indication.
A good first step is to get a pre-qualification from a reputable lender, then sit down and write up your criteria for a home, then meet with an agent that has local expertise.
All the best,
Good morning, Jerobbins28,
If you are referring to the Grand Rapids area, particularly the West Side, then SWAN is an acronym for the South West Area Neighbors Association, a local, State and nationally recognized non-profit neighborhood association that assists residents and businesses residing in the southwest side of Grand Rapids through the promotion of home ownership, neighborhood improvement, and, through partnership with the Grand Rapids Police Department, crime prevention.
They are located at 705 West Fulton St in Grand Rapids (http://www.swangr.org) (616-456-9190).
Having personally worked with this organization in the past, I can attest to the dedication and professionalism of its staff and volunteers in their mission to make grand Rapids a better place to live and work.
