Is a Contract for Deed Right for You?

Many potential buyers and sellers express curiosity and interest in purchasing a home through contract for deed. A contract for deed is a form of financing used frequently in residential real estate sales/purchases. In this type of transaction, the "middle man" (the bank) is essentially eliminated. Rather than the buyer making payments to a bank or mortgage company, the buyer makes payments to the seller. The terms can be similar to a mortgage, often including a payment agreement over a term of years with interest. A contract for deed is commonly used as an alternative to a mortgage for numerous reasons including, cost savings, credit problems and property condition. Once the contract has been fulfilled, the buyer owns the house. Attorney Lang writes and reviews contracts for deed as well as represents clients throughout the process of executing the transaction.
