PostHeaderIcon Seller Mortgage, Refi Rate & Refinance Fee

Seller mortgage is also known as a land contract.  Seller mortgage is when client buys a home and directly makes the monthly payments to the seller instead of a bank. The buyer gets financing from the seller instead of going to a mortgage company or a bank. This can be beneficial because then you can discuss interest rates that aren’t available at banks. This is also good because the seller has a buyer and also some type of income. At the same time, this can also hurt the seller. If a seller is going to do this with a buyer the seller should own the property free and clear, just in case the buyer defaults on a monthly payment. Should this happen it will come back and hurt the buyer financials, and credit.

Refi rates are the rates that a borrower is offered when they are looking to refinance. Rates are what a lender’s yearly price for the borrower to obtain a loan. Refi rates depended on a few different things some being, loan to value, credit score, and also their income.
