How Owner Financing Works

Owner financing is a pretty simple process.

Step 1 – Find a property on our website that you’re interested in.  Contact us for detailed information and to schedule a time to view the home so you can assess what the property needs in regards to repairs.  We sell all of our properties as-is, so you need to make sure that you can handle the work that comes with the property.*  Once you’ve assessed the work needed, we’ll discuss with you the available owner financing options.

Step 2 – After inspecting the home thoroughly, and determining the financing options with the asset manager, you will submit an application to our financing department and provide the needed documents to complete your financing application. These documents will include proof of income, proof of rental history, proof of employment, 3 months of bank statements, an insurance quote, etc.  This is simply to insure your ability to pay for the property and for your protection. Upon approval, you will be required to make a deposit to hold the property and your representative will contact you with the details of your new home purchase.

Step 3 – Once you are approved, the contract process begins and you will be contacted by our closing service to arrange for the convenient signing of your documents. During the signing process you will deliver your down payment to the closing service along with your debit card information which is required for delivery of your monthly payments. Once we’ve received all of the paperwork and your down payment back in good order, we will remove the home from the market and you may take possession of the property and move in!

Step 4 – Within a few weeks, you will receive a copy of your finalized Land Contract purchase agreement via mail.

Important Notes

*Any issues or concerns you have about the condition of the property should be discussed with the asset manager upon your inspection. All houses are sold 100%     “As Is”.  What this means is that the we will not be making any kind of repairs or improvements prior to the sale of the home. We will also do not make any guarantees, or warranties in regard to the condition or livability of the home. We strongly encourage you to inspect your home prior to making a down payment.  Down payments are refundable only if you do not qualify.

If the home does need repairs, you need to be able to demonstrate and ability to cover the costs and the repairs.  If for example, the down payment required on a home is $2,000, and that’s all the money you have in the world, then you’re not quite ready to buy and will need to work to save some more money.  Our ultimate goal is to help deserving people become home owners and most importantly, see that they’re able to stay in those homes.  It’s important to note that in addition to the down payment, you will also need to be able to cover the insurance cost as well as several months of taxes that will be set up in a monthly escrow account.
