Seller financing is when the seller holds some or all of the mortgage for the buyer instead of a lender.Basically instead of paying a mortgage company every month the new buyer will pay the sellr every month.Any questions feel free to call me

The only answer to this is: Depends on your contract. If you decide to do a rent to own contract you need to ammend your listing agreement to include these services. In addition you need to specify how or IF you will be responsible to pay your listing/leasing agent for this. You should specify how much and at which point they get paid. These things are negotiable.. but it takes effect when its in a contract and agreed to, so there are no general right/wrong rules. Hope that helps! ... more

Fran and Mark Redding answered:

Read your contract and consult with your realtor or if you don't have one see an attorney.
The standard form PA contract includes several provisions for either the buyer or seller too terminate for cause. Under normal circumstances termination for cause includes a pre agreed condition to refund the deposit money to the buyer. However Termination of the contract and Release of the deposit are 2 different events. Termination is a unilateral event thhat can be initiated by either party. Release is a bilateral agreement to distribute the money. Distribution can be to either party or shared as long as both parties agree. If they can not agree then the deposit money should remain with the broker until an agreement is reached or ordered by the court or the result of arbitration.

I concur with Phong D. Lam - very good answer. I want to add that there are first time home buyer programs through the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency. Many state counties also have first time programs. I have links and information on the state programs on my web site. You can also run mortgage some scenarios with a buyer’s assist. ... more

Hi Christine,
I just sold a house in that area. We were under contract 3 weeks after it went on the market. I would be glad to meet with you to discuss my marketing plan and also come up with the proper price for your property.
