Why would you RISK giving that much money to total stranger of approx. $350K to $400K . If that owner does not pay their mortgage you have lost the money.

Usually owner financing has higher interest rate than a bank.

If you have credit issues best clear those go purchase a home BE less of down payment

Hi Mike,
Since you are not involving a bank for a mortgage it would be entirely up to the seller or homeowner to let me discuss your current credit situation to properly structure the deal so its suitable on both ends. Even if they say yes you may not agree to terms, keep in mind some homwowners are not eligle to do a short sale and owe more than the property is currently worth, therefore a lender would not lend above appraised value to a person with good credit using conventional financing. This may open up some good opportunities for you to get into a home as long as you are willing to accept some terms that may not be acceptable in a traditional deal. Feel free to contact me to discuss options and properties that offer owner financing.

Hi Mike:

Your best bet would be to talk to a mortgage broker who might be a better resource than a home seller. There are not a lot of sellers who will finance a mortgage, and that is not a category (field) on the MLS. Hard to find.

If you would like the name of the mortgage broker who I have worked with successfully email me at the address below. In your price range, $700-$900k, there will be a house just for you.

Looking forward to working with you and finding you the home of your dreams and a great financing plan.

Mike 123,

I'm sure there plenty of homes in Boca Raton in the price range you're looking. But to find "owner financing" is another story all together.

If your buyer has 50% down payment, I can help them obtain financing. If they're looking for owner financing, I would assume that there must be some credit issue which disqualifies them from conventional financing. They will pay a much higher rate of interest, but there are options with a 50% down payment.

Contact me and I will steer you in the right direction.

Dear Mike,

Hi! You are looking to purchase with seller financing so you need to be looking for a regular sale. On a short sale the bank will not pay attention to this request and with a foreclosure the bank again is not interested. Are there some nice seller properties in Boca with your specifications? Yes. You will also need an attorney/title company to complete this transaction.

Hello Mike!

Hope you enjoyed this wonderful day!
There are many homes for sale within that price range in Boca Raton, from East to West. Do you have other criteria that are important to you other than owner financing, Boca Raton, $700- $900K? Do you need a large home? Are schools important to you? Do you need to be near major roadways for easy commute to work? What amenities are important to you in your community? These and other important questions can help in finding the right home for you.
Everything is negotiable and if you find the right home and the seller is able and willing to finance, then the details can be negotiated. Many sellers don’t think of listing their home as seller financed but will consider it if a good deal is presented. I'm a negotiator that can help you find what you need. Let’s talk...561-809-8328.

Your best bet is to interview at least three agents who service the Boca Raton area and select one to represent you that you know has your best interests at heart and the skills to help you clearly identify your needs and locate matching properties. Perhaps the most important skill is the ability to evaluate the current market around the home you are interested in and negotiate the best pricing and terms on your behalf. There is a lot of inventory in these price ranges and finding one to carry 50% of the paper is easily accomplished.

Of course much depends on what you are looking for in a location and lifestyle and a qualified Realtor® can help point you in the right direction. A few recommendations I would make; I would tell you to not sign a buyer's broker agreement with anyone. This is a form an agent will use to tie you up and ensure any transaction you make will only be through them. Find an agent who is happy to perform their services with the knowledge that if they do not properly meet your expectations they will lose your business. Second, never call a listing agent about a home they have listed as their initial relationship with the seller will prevent you from working out the best deal when it comes time to negotiate pricing and terms.

If you do decide to interview agents please feel free to contact me as I would be honored to be on that list.

Always at Your Service,

neighborhood that does not impose these costs?
How many bedrooms and baths are required, are you open to both 1 and 2 story designs?
Are you prepared to purchase at this time or is it conditioned upon the sale of an existing

Hi Mike,

Although owner financing is not that common, there are sellers in a position to do so.

One property just listed in St. Andrews that is open to this is and the link is below.

If you let me know a little more about what you are looking for (golf course, view, close to a certain school ect) I am happy to do a search for you and any that you interest you we can explore further.

Enjoy this beautiful day!
