Selling a home can be challenging enough as it is, even if you find someone who is willing to purchase your home. Sometimes additional buyers who can obtain the capital to purchase your home can be enticed to make an offer if the seller offers special concessions or deals on the property. One way to do this is to use seller carryback financing.

Seller Carryback Financing:

Seller Carryback Financing is when the seller acts as a sort of bank for the party interested in purchasing the home. Basically, the seller is willing to act as a bank or lender and carries a second mortgage on the property, which the buyer makes a payment on each month in order to “buy back” the mortgage.

This is also often referred to as owner financing or seller financing.

Seller Carryback Financing May Help You Sell Your Home:

Seller Carryback Financing can be a great way to help you get your home sold. However, it’s often necessary in order to get the home sold if people are not able to get a deal done with either a conventional bank or lender. Many times, these institutions won’t offer the buyer a traditional loan with which to they can use to pay the property.

For example, a bank might offer a buyer a 5% down payment loan when the buyer needs 10% in order to put a down payment on your property.  Using a seller carryback financing deal can assist you by allowing more buyers to qualify to purchase your home. You can personally assist you in providing the buyer with the capital they need to purchase your home. The buyer will make monthly payments back to you until the loan is paid.

You may be able to boost the sales price of your home as well. If you feel that you can help the sale of your home by using a seller carryback loan, then this loan may benefit you in the sale of your home. Moreover, helping with the sale of your home can help you make the move to your next home.

What Are the Interest Rates on Seller Carryback Financing?

The mortgage rate that the seller carryback financing loan will carry must be agreed upon by both the seller and the buyer. Taking into account the down payment and the credit history of the buyer, a fair rate is reached that is satisfactory to both parties.
