FINANCING TO SELL
Would-be buyers confronted by increasingly stringent borrowing standards imposed by banks and other lending
institutions are looking to seller financing as a means of buying a home. This financing strategy makes a great deal of
sense for home sellers who can afford it. Not only does seller financing help ensure a sale, but it also provides a stream
of future income. Of course, sellers must be assured that the buyers they intend to take on as borrowers are a good risk.
