What are the financing terms?
Typically, properties are financed for a 5-year term and can be amortized up to 15 years. Interest rates are fixed and vary depending on the down payment amount. Current rates are 8.9%, 7.9%, and 6.9% with a down payment of 20%, 30%, and 50%, respectively. There are no penalties when the outstanding principal balance is prepaid in full.
My credit isn’t great, can I have a family member cosign for me?
Yes, they would need to fill out the same Owner Financing Application and would need to be present at closing to sign the promissory note and mortgage.
How can I figure out what my monthly payments will be?
To calculate your monthly payments the information you would need is 1) your principal balance, 2) interest rate, 3) the number of payments per year, 4) number of monthly payments and 5) balloon payment (if any). For example, you are going to purchase a property for $25,000 with 20% down (a principal balance of $20,000), at 8.9% fixed rate, for 5 years (60 months with 12 payments per year), with no balloon payment, your monthly payment would be $414.20. We use this Amortization Calculator to calculate monthly payments.
