First Time Home Buyer!

1 Reply

I am currently looking to purchase my first home. I am interested in buying a duplex so I can start house hacking. I would prefer to try to do an owner finance deal. Any suggestions on how I would contact the owner to see if he would even be willing to consider the option of owner financing? Do I ask the listing agent if the owner would consider the option?

Why would you prefer owner financing?  If you qualify traditional financing is almost always cheaper.  If you are dead set on owner financing asking the listing agent or whoever listed the property is a good place to start.  If you don't want to work with an agent the way to find the listing agent's phone number is the first suggested agent on zillow when looking at a property, it should say listing agent next to their name.
