Risk to the Seller on subject-to deals
In a Subject-to deal why would the seller take the risk of keeping the mortgage under his name, when the buyer can default at a future time? is it because they can get some cash from the buyer, and perhaps get some equity if they do have it? and be willing to be at peace for the immediate time, and prolong the risk to get foreclosed if the new buyer's don't make the payments?
Thank you in advance for your help.
