Are "contract for deeds" safe?Why would a seller list their house as a contract for deed (other than capital gains issues), and why would a buyer want to buy one? Aren't these types of transactions risky for BOTH parties involved? Also, when I mentioned a Contract for Deed listing to my mortgage broker, he had never heard of them. So, do I run away from my mortgage broker, or run away from this type of real estate listing?July 21 2010 - Pinehurst0YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
