Properties with Possible Owner Financing

The most common and traditional way for purchasing a home is borrowing from a bank.  But it's not always the only option.

Occasionally, you will find a seller that is wiling to finance all or part of your purchase.  The exact details of the financing can vary from seller to seller, depending on the situation of the seller and the buyer.

Buyers may look for owner financing for a variety of reasons, such as being self employed and not having sufficient documentation for a traditional loan.

Seller financing deals don't have as many closing costs, such as loan origination fees, discount points, and mortgage insurance premiums, among others.

Typically, these loans come with a short term and a balloon payment at the end of the term. At that point, the buyer, who now owns the property, will need to either pay the loan off in full or refinance with a traditional loan.

Below is a link to a list of properties in the Florida Keys that are offering possible seller financing.

Vacation Rental Condos in the Florida Keys

For the most part, real estate has always been considered a good investment. And while it's true that real estate doesn't pay dividends like most stocks will, it does have income potential.

There are several condominium complexes that allow vacation rentals, which are defined as rentals lasting less than 28 days. Weekly rentals is the most common time frame, but some complexes will allow as little as one night.
These properties allow you to use your investment as a second home while you are visiting the Florida Keys and then rent it out while you are not in town, earning you income that can assist with the cost of ownership.

From the modest studio apartments to open water luxury condos, there is something in just about every price range.
