If the seller is willing to lower the price. A cash purchase doesn't put extra money in the seller's pocket. They are usually faster transactions and more likely to close.

Hello Tracey.

The mortgage company of the seller will not service or assist in the transfer of a seller financing deal between you and the seller; it's a conflict of interest. There are third party mortgage servicing companies available for a small monthly fee, but the Real Estate ownership transfer from the seller to you the buyer will need to be done separately.

Give me a call perhaps I can help you out.

f you haven't been pre-approved yet I recommend this be the first thing you do. So speak with a lender to apply for a loan and prequalify. There are also lenders like myself that are able to work with credit scores down to 580. So when you apply for a loan, lenders like myself will need to look at several different things if you are trying to prequalify for a loan. 1) Proof of income for each person that will be on the mortgage which can be demonstrated through: one month of pay stubs, previous year's W-2 forms and tax returns, official documentation to demonstrate other forms of income (alimony, child support, etc.), and two year's tax returns if self-employed (all schedules, all pages) 2) Credit Report which they will pull 3) Employment History or Business Tax Returns if you're Self Employed 4) Personal assets such as: Recent balances and statements for bank accounts, most recent account statement demonstrating market value of any investments (stocks, bonds or certificates of deposit), documentation showing interest in retirement funds, face amount and cash value of life insurance policies, value of significant pieces of personal property, debt information, the balances and account numbers of your current loans and debts, including car loans, credit card balances and any other loans you may have. These are just a few things you should have ready when you begin your buying process. There are also first-time buyer mortgages such as FHA that only require 3.5% down with competitive rates. Well I hope this helps, if you have any other questions or need a loan please contact me through the information on my profile page. I hope this helps and good luck!

This home’s listing agent can tell you more about this place that I can (and probably will know a lot about similar properties in the area). You can email the agent from listing page using the orange “Contact Agent” button to the right of the home photos.

Or, you can look for other local agents on Trulia here:

Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you. Good luck with the search!
