It's my understanding that to prevent predatory lending, Owner financed properties will have to be structured over a term starting in 2014. I'm not positive if there will be any specifics relating to rates.

There is no “going rate” for owner financing. Each situation is usually different. The rate and terms are items to be negotiated between the buyer and the seller, with the rate usually a “little” higher than bank rates. The size of the down payment and buyer’s financial position and credit are factors that usually affect the rate. Keep in mind that owner financing is not normally for buyers with poor credit, but rather for those with situations that make it difficult to obtain conventional financing such as; self employment, job or career change, having another property to sell, etc.. I recently negotiated a 5 1/2% rate for my buyer for a commercial/residential property with the seller paying the commission. A lease with a purchase option could be better. If you are uncomfortable or inexperienced at negotiating, it could help to use the services of a professional realtor.

That depends on the individual seller, the amount you put down and the specific home. Their is also the option of just "putting your foot in the water" and doing a lease option with much less risk. For more info about that give us an email at squast@kw.com or call us 843-282-8750. These can be a great way to break into the market!

The terms of an owner financed property will depend on the owner. There isn't really anything regulating what a person can or can't sell their property for. Because of that, the owner can basically structure his own financing however he/she likes. When using owner financing a deal will be struck between the seller and buyer. So to answer your question, there is no going rate, it's whatever you and the seller agree upon.
