What made you interested in investing in this type of deal?

Seller was offering owner financing.

How did you find this deal and how did you negotiate it?

MLS. through a buyers agent. Seller was originally asking $179,900 and offered owner financing

How did you finance this deal?

Owner Financing

How did you add value to the deal?

Negotiated down from $179,900 for 15 yrs @ 6% to $145,000 for 20 yrs with 20% down.

Lessons learned? Challenges?

Let the option period expire without asking for repairs from the seller. My agent didn't guide me through the process as well as I think she should have as a first time buyer/invester.

No.
