Hello,

This property is currently NOT on the market. According to the public records it went to Sheriff Sale in September of 2011. For some reason the house has not been placed on the market. It is well past the 6 month redemption period so there must be an issue with the home that is keeping the bank from placing it on the market.

Do you live near the home? Is anyone living in the house? Sometimes if the previous owner has NOT left, the bank has to legally evict them, so that also could be preventing the home from being placed on the market.

I hope this helps a little.

Thank you,

HAIG

Best suggestion is to start with your bank or credit union and then call different banks or mortgage companies.

Hi crmonoya,

As long as it's a standard sale and not a short sale, he can. If it's a short sale, all parties have to sign an Arms Length Affidavit stating the buyer is not related to the seller so you would not be able to sign that without it being Fraud since he's your husband.

Hello,

"Legally" there is no minimum required by law. But the other side of it is, it should be "fair" for both sides. With the Land Contract's that I have seen, the rates are "USUALLY" between 6 - 10%, but I have seen some higher and some lower.

Also, a decent down payment is usually asked for as well. But the beauty of a Land Contract is that the details are between the buyer and the seller and can be what both of you deem fair.

If I was the owner I personally would not go too low because I could probably make more money investing it in other things, like a Mutual Fund or even selling the home to another person at a market rate for the Land Contract.

But whatever you two can work is between you.

Good Luck,

HAIG

Bill Eckler answered:
Buying a home "sight unseen" is likely not a good idea(eventhough I once did it and it worked out). So it's probably best to visit the US for the purpose of selecting the location and property possibilities. Having reliable friends of acquaintances that are located in the area you are interested in can be a great help as well. The actual transaction is something that can take place "long distance."

With today's technology absentee closings are very common and easily accomplished as long as it is planned for in advance. We just completed one for buyers from Sweeden and everything went smoothly.

Good luck,

Bill
