Deeds and Title
What is a land contract?
A land contract is legal agreement in which a land owner sells a parcel of land with a house on it and agrees to finance the purchase for the buyer. To satisfy the contract, the buyer makes monthly payments, which include interest, to the seller until the loan is paid in full. Only upon satisfaction of the contract does the seller transfer the property's deed to the buyer. Under a land contract, the seller retains legal title to the property, while permitting the buyer to take possession of it for most purposes other than legal ownership.
Are these properties sold as is?
Who makes improvements to the home?
Yes, all homes are sold on an "as is" basis
Is this property condemned or on a demolition list?
You have all the same rights of ownership under a land contract as you would if you held title to the property, thus you make any and all necessary repairs or improvements.
Can I view the inside of the home?
It is always prudent to check the status of the property before making an offer.
Does the property information accurately reflect the current condition?
Yes, contact one of our sales consultants to gain access to the property.
