Hello Mc Fly, the Property Guy! Pleased to meet you! Getting seller financing is tight. There is much to know about these sort of transactions, although they can be very attractive depending on "why" you are in need of this...

I can certainly set up a search for you that would include any and all homes that offer seller financing in Redford. I would also be willing to invest some time discussing all this with you so that you know what is involved and perhaps what other options you might have. Feel free to contact me anytime: Diane 734-516-8043 (RE/MAX Gallery, Livonia).

This home was a Bank Owned home listed for sale on 12-31-2012 for $29,700.00. It had an offer accepted on it 1-9-2013 and it is now marked CCS Inspection. So there is always a chance that it may come back to market in case the current buyer's are not satisfied with the outcome of the inspection.

If you are interested in this home, or other homes in the neighborhood, I can set you up on a search that will notify you if this house comes back on the market, or other similar homes are for sale in the same area.

My contact information is below, feel free to contact me if you like.

Thank you,

Good Morning,

I would be more than happy to work with you. My suggestion is either renting a property, rent to own is not a good option for the tenant. Land contracts are out there you are going to pay a little more for a land contract and the down payment is generally 20% down. Redford and Livonia are to very hot markets so hopefully you have a reasonable time frame.

Send more information on what your looking for, bedrooms, baths, garage, basement and style of home.

Hello Sandra,

The listing you are viewing is an old entry. The home is NOT currently listed on the market. The house did go up for a Sheriff Sale this past March and is now currently under the 6 month redemption.

If you are interested, let me know and we can set up a search for homes either in that area or directly on that street so you receive a notification as soon as that home hits the market. If you are interested I would also suggest getting a preapproval for a mortgage, unless of course you are paying cash.

My contact information is below if you need to contact me.

Thank you,

There are just a few homes being sold on Land Contract in Redford right now with a down payment at or around $10k.

Click this link to see some we pulled for you:

When you're considering a land contract purchase, remember, the seller still wants to be confident about your ability to pay. Having lower credit may be an issue to some. To other sellers it doesn't matter, but they may ask about it, so have your explanation letter ready to address why the score is low and a plan for what you want to do about it.

And yes, the price may be double because remember, the price is not today's value, it's what the home will be worth in the future when the land contract is paid off. However, that doesn't mean you have to pay the asking price; negotiate the right price, payment and interest rate that works for your budget.

There are also a ton of terms and conditions that should be in place to protect your interest in the property.

If you need help with this, please feel free to contact us:

Ron Thomas answered:
Do you think that a 5 year old house would be subjected to less wear-and-tear than a 5 year old car?
People have been living in it for 5 years.
The weather and insects have been beating it for 5 years.
The earth has been moving and settling for 5 years.
The wood has been expanding and contracting for 5 years.
Appliances and fixtures have been used and broken in the last 5 years.
Grease, dust, lint, hair and dirt have been accumulating for 5 years.

Are you same person you were 5 years ago?

Good luck and may God bless

Yes, you have a good chance of it. If it has happened a couple times it will improve your chances. Hang in there and see if they agree to the lower price. You will need to make a lower offer, I think on paper - they love paper work. ... more

When they got the keys is when I would say they took possession. Did they give you a receipt for them? By their subsequent letters, they may be trying to get blood out of a turnip.

Hello Josie,

Here is a search that I did for you for homes in the 48239 zip code. Click on the link below and view the listings, there are quite a few under $17,000.00. The link will only stay active for seven (7) days.

Let me know if this is the area that you are asking about, if not I will do a new search for you.

Please let me know if you need anything else. Contact me if you need help finding a new home.

Thank you

Genny most banks will not sell a property unless it is vacant and the title has been cleared. Where you are laready living there, it could be one of thise cases where they may accomodate you. After the house is foreclosed on, if the bank takes it back, they will assign it to a listing agent at that time, that agent will tyry and work with you to move, at this time is when you can provide them with your offer and your prequailification. The bank will then appraise the house and should consider your offer and put it on their specific forms. Nothing is always as simple as it looks so it depends on how willing that agent is to work with you. If you make it easy for them they will be more apt to assist you. You should now be trying to contact someone in a higher up position to assist you before it goes to foreclosure. good luck ... more
