Chris is right - the only other time I found that the bank will not finance is if their is high debt on the property, such as property liens due to non payment of taxes or utilities as well as mechanic liens. If you purchase a property in this situation, you will also inherit the debt.

Be very careful with this one! If I can help, give me a call.

Hi Tim,

It usually means that the house is in such disrepair, that you are not able to get conventional financing for the property. Even most rehab programs have limits as to how much they are willing to lend.

It could also mean that the owner is not offering any kind of owner financing, but that would be rare to post. Most times it can be assumed that the seller will not finance it, and only noted if they actually are.

Hope that helps.

Happy Hunting,
