There are eight listings shown in Metrolist as "Owner will carry" in the Placerville or nearby areas such as Camino, Pollock Pines, Pilot Hill, and Shingle Springs. Subscribers to Metrolist are able to search specifically for owner will carry. The free public sites do not have this search option. I advise you to find a Realtor who has experience with owner carryback transactions. ( I've done about twelve )
Occasionally we find situations that are not listed as owner will carry, but can persuade a seller that owns free and clear to carry back a loan, even though she did not advertise it that way.
