To be quite honest it is very hard to find land contract homes. You can have a Realtor search in the MLS for you but you will only find a couple. I suggest searching craigslist and typind Land Contract in the search box. ... more

I would recommend searching for a Realtor in your area that is on Trulia that has great recommendations. You can search for a real estate professional and filter by recommendations.

I would definitely look for a Realtor in your area that does quite a bit of business. Any Realtor that is experienced will have worked on many foreclosure transactions since they are so prevalent in your area. ... more

Thats up to you. Have to weight out the pros and cons and what will the property be worth at the end. If it's not going to get you money plus time back, then might not be worth it. If you plan on living there and over time gets your money back for you then it might.
Good luck,
Duane

Good Evening Monty:

Are you looking for an investor to purchase the home and then land contract it back to you until December? We do have investors that do that. Their prices depend on things like length of contract, credit score, down payment, etc. Please contact me if you would like to discuss more.

Whatever you do Chester, be sure to ask questions and be sure you understand exactly what you are getting into regardless of the lender you choose. Know the facts! With good credit and an acceptable debt to income ratio, you should be okay.

My advice would also be to begin putting something away for savings just in case of an emergency and begin creating a little nest egg for yourself. Everyone needs a little bit on the side for the just in case times.

It is bank owned by DEUTSCHE BANK NATIONAL TRUST CO. The condition of the back yard if awful, but the inside used to be fairly nice and the backyard could be brought back to be very lovely. The lady that used to own it had planted lots of flowering trees and had it landscaped nicely. I actually had this listed several years ago. Finished basement, large backyard with part of the pond included in the property. Family room with fireplace, formal dining room and formal living room. I can't remember if it had 3 or 4 bedrooms. HOpe that helps. ... more

9135 Dold is listed with the Prudential in Findlay and is Sale Pending. Listed at $129,900 with the remarks being "sold as is" my guess is a bank owned property. We won't know of the sale price of course until it is sold. ... more

Hi,
Another option for you is what's known as a "kiddie condo loan." Our 20 year old daughter just bought a 175K home in Columbus with this FHA loan. Her father was the co-signer but she still qualified for the $8,000.00 tax credit. You can go the link below for more info on the tax credit. To qualify for the loan she had to be a full time student and have a good credit history. (ie: bills in her name that were paid on time) Talk with a loan officer who specializes in this type of loan for more info. Hope this helps!!

Hi Jordanne,

Hopefully you are working with a real estate professional who can provide you with accurate comps for the neighborhood. Sales within the last 6 months should give you a good idea. In some areas the 6 months may need to be tweaked to reflect more or fewer months, depending on sale activity. You can find these comps yourself on your local auditor's site, but a real estate agent can do this quickly and more efficiently. 99.9% of buyers agents work for FREE, as their commission is paid by the seller of the property.

With that being said, if it is indeed a relocation company who is the owner, then I would suggest not offering too low, as relocation companies have stringent pricing criteria. They are rarely over-priced, as they have usually boughten the home from the re-located employee and definitely do not offer a prime price to them.

It is however apparent that they originally had some wiggle room, as seen by the recent deep price reduction. Or perhaps, also, their inventory is high and they have decided to price some properties for quick sale.

At any rate, I would still suggest contacting a local buyer's agent to help you. If you need a referral I woul dbe glad to find one for you.

Warm Regards,
Dee Nofziger

Kary Krismer answered:
Our MLS has a form that allows a seller to counter two offers, and provides who wins if both accept. Absent using that form, the agent is probably in big trouble. Personally I don't like doing that even with the form. I'd much perfer to pick and offer and counter it. ... more
