Finding Owner Financed Properties

1 Reply

Hi Everyone,

I'm curious as to how everyone is finding their owner financing deals? I search the MLS for key words such as owner financing and seller financing, but it doesn't seem to be that much on the market. I'm wondering if I'm not seeing deals because of how I'm looking for them or if there really isn't that many out there. Thanks.

Todd, you don’t find an owner financed deal, you create it. Before you make the offer, ask the seller if he would be willing to accept a little less up front and monthly payments for the next... 3,5,10 or so years. Or make the offer first and if they counter, you can tell them you can come up in price if they hold some of the financing... there are a lot of ways to do it, but you will very rarely see someone advertising it. Most sellers don’t even think of it until you ask the question.

Best of luck
Chris
