I have a seller right now who wants to sell his house for 30k. This price works for me, because I could probably put in 15k in the house and sell it for mid 80s. He also agreed to 15k down and the other 15k in 6mos, no interest. When I called my realtor to draft up the paperwork, she told me that owner financing is no longer available unless if the seller lived there, and I remembered reading about that here.
So, could I not re-structure this deal and 'buy' this house for 15k, and then have the seller put a lien on the house once I have the title for the other 15k?
I am fairly new, so I am not sure if what I said is even possible or a good idea. Any workarounds to this law? I thought about L/O as another alternative, but I wouldn't have the deed in my name.
