I am finding that a lot of people are willing to consider land contracts now. The problem with them is that they usually require a pretty large down payment, so the situation has to fit perfectly for the buyer. The ideal buyer for a land contract is somebody who has money saved up, a steady income, and one distinguishing but explainable flaw in their credit history (bankruptcy, foreclosure, short-sale). Because the interest rates of land contracts are generally higher than a typical mortgage, it is usually better to get an FHA or conventional loan from a bank if you can.
