      What is Owner Financing in Real Estate? Find out here or visit our website @ www.GreaterAustinHomes.com Owner Financing or Seller Financing in real estate is where all of the purchase price, less the buyer’s down payment, is carried by the seller. Instead of going to the bank, and in exchange for full legal ownership of the property, the buyer gives a real estate lien note to the seller as evidence of the loan and makes payments to the seller or to a third party servicing company. Even if there is an existing loan on the property, the Seller can still sell with Owner Financing using a wrap around mortgage. Put simply, a wrap around mortgage is a new mortgage that is created on a property that “wraps around” an existing mortgage.

          How do you buy a foreclosure?

          I noticed a townhome I liked that is going to be sold at auction in October because they haven’t paid taxes and owe ,000. That’s the only information given. I know the homes there go for about 90k. Is there a chance I can get it for cheap? Would I have to pay the owed taxes? Their mortgage? I’m just curious how it all works. Thanks!

            I have a foreclosure, can I still buy a house?

            Two years ago I had a foreclosure, my income has increased and the reason for the delinquency on my prior loan was due to complications in my pregancy that put me on disability for six months. We are living in a rental but the landlord was using our rent money to pay the mortgage on his personal home and now the hose we live in is foreclosing. There are many houses in our area selling for dirt cheap, I’m talking like k-5. Do I have a chance to buy another house?

            I'm unclear about terms-do I do a LEASE OPTION or just a LEASE?? Which is the most attractive?

            I own a 3900 sq. ft. commercial building on the main block of a small downtown area. The mountain town is known for it’s art and indian collectibles. Sales are soft, even if the town is popular. There are basically three blocks of stores, but I’m on the most heavy trafficked block, so it’s a plum. My question is about leasing it. Namely, what is more attractive to most? Do I simply lease it for a certain period of time–and how long? Do I do a Lease Option? Do I do a double net or a triple net?

            Of course, I know all are possibilities, but I’m TOTALLY ignorant about all this and want to do what is good for me, but attractive to a potential lessee.

            And how do I advertise that I’m willing to lease?? Do I use a realtor? I still have a store in the building as well, and would need two months to sell the inventory, but ONLY if I have someone committed. I am still paying a mortgage and can’t afford for the building to be empty, waiting for a lessee. Please educate me.
            By the way, I’m aware that I can go to an attorney or commercial realtor. I came here because I want to hear YOUR OPINION!!!

            Worried about the status of a lease purchase option.?

            I entered into a lease purchase option in June. The property is still under construction & available Nov. 1. The seller is having trouble with the terms of his mortgage & wants me to get a mortgage now. I can’t due to credit issues. At first he offered a refund of my sizeable deposit, but now he says that the terms of his mortgage might not change, but Nov. is fast approaching and he won’t know for 2 weeks if he can close on the property. He also stated that my monthly payments might have to be higher than on the contract. I cannot pay more. I need my deposit to look for another place. The original agreement is in writing & states the lease/purchase commences on November 1. Do I have any legal recourse to get a refund of my deposit (the contract states it is non-refundable), since the seller does not currently own the property, there are no other witnesses on the contract and I don’t think his lender knows of his intention to lease option the property?
