The real question here is "Can you afford to buy a home?". A land contract is a great option for people who have had credit problems but have a good income and money to put down. Many people can not save the money for a down payment because of high rental costs. Our office has several land contract opportunities. Please contact us for more information.

I am going to be honest with you. If you can't get approved for a loan then you are not ready to buy a home.

Almost ever land contract I have seen has wound up being "bad" for someone.

Their are a ton of homes and apartments for rent. Rent for a little while until you are a little more settled down and stable. Then go and get a traditional mortgage to buy a home.

Thank you,
