Minnetonka contract for deed homes-Edina-Eagan Minnesota

December 03rd 2012

A contract for deed gives the buyer Equitable title the right to live in the property, improve it, rent it, enjoy all of the benefits of ownership.

The buyer does not have legal title, he cannot use it as collateral for a home equity loan although in some states, banks will lend against an equitable interest in a contract for deed. 

Also lenders will usually consider the equity and down payment the buyer puts down as a down payment towards the refinancing of the house. As long as the home appraises the buyer should be able to get a FHA loan if they qualify for the program. FHA mortgages generally are 3.5% of the sale price to get a loan. Also they charge mortgage insurance.

Conventional mortgages if the buyer has 20% equity in the home and qualifies they should be able to avoid mortgage insurance.


The IRS generally treats a contract for deed as a sale, which means the buyer has the tax benefits of ownership the payments of interest that are made by the buyer in possession are deductible as "mortgage interest," even though the buyer does not have legal title to the property. 



A contract for deed seller must report the transaction as an installment sale on form IRS Form 6252. Once sold, the seller cannot claim depreciation or any other tax benefits of the property.

If the buyer defaults on the contract and the seller exercises his or her legal option to reclaim the property, the tax code treats the transaction as a foreclosure.

 

The legal process for repossession of the property in Minnesota is 60 days. Seek legal help on this issue we are not a law office.

A contract for deed sale will allow owner to get more of a down than a rent to own or lease option.

 In higher-priced neighborhoods, like Dellwood-Minnetonka Beach-Orono-Wayaza ect the rents may not command enough rent to cover your underlying mortgage payments.

 

 

A contract for deed sale will allow the seller to collect interest payments, which are generally more than you could collect in rent. Properties are already sold for tax purposes; The owner cannot use a 1031 tax-deferred exchange on a property sold by contract for deed when the buyer pays off the debt balance. 

The entire balance paid on the contract will be due as a capital gain, which can be a huge tax liability if you have a low basis in the property.

With Rent to own or leasing you dont get the tax benefits as you would get if you buy the home with owner financing.

Sellers are willing to finance the all kinds of different properties for around 3-5 years and rate is usually around 6% as long as rates are low.

Credit usually is not an issue. Homeowners know if you are looking to buy real estate in Minnesota or Wisconsin and have good credit you can get a mortgage so dont worry about your credit focus more on the down payment.

If you have proof of employment and can make the house payment you should qualify for a cd property. Sometimes if the owner finances their property they may want to see a credit report but the scores dont really mean much.

They want to see how long before they think you can refinance the property and pay off the contract.

Most owners dont want to be the bank so they wont carry the contract for more than 10 years. If you can get a owner to carry the contract for more than 5 years you are doing very well.
