Seller financing, which you rarely – but sometimes – run into when you’re scoping out the real estate market, is a way for buyers to get non-conventional financing to buy a house.

What is Seller Financing?

Seller financing involves the buyer borrowing money from the seller to buy a home instead of going through a bank or lender. The buyer sends monthly mortgage payments to the seller.

The seller gets to earn interest on the loan (and sometimes at a higher rate than he or she would get through other investments).

Usually these arrangements are short-term and feature a balloon payment at the end.

Some buyers like them because they can use that short-term period to build up credit and later qualify for a conventional loan.
