It is difficult to find owner financed homes because a majority of agents do not know how or where to list when a seller is offering owner financing. Most agents just do not have much experience in this type of financing because it its very rare. I would suggest finding a Broker that specializes in this type of transaction.
The other alternative is to find a private money lender that will not charge you an "arm and a leg" in interest. Using private money or owner financing is a great way to live the American Dream even if you have bad credit, a recent short sale, foreclosure or bankruptcy. Do not rent if you can help it. When you rent you pay 100% interest to your land lord. If you need more details please contact me. I am one of the few Brokers in the country that specialize in these types of financing.

Over a year old thread?  Do you really think the poster is still looking?

And why look for seller financing on "foreclosures"???  Sure, the bank that is selling an REO can provide a loan, but you apply just the same as normal.

As for websites to look up "seller financing" listings... this one.  Just include the words "seller financing" in quotes in the keywords filter.  Use the "homes" tab at the top of this page to get to the search.

For the whole U.S., it is presently indicating 232 results for "seller finance" and 5871 for "seller financing".  It is also indicating 1192 for "owner carry".

What area or city are you looking for? Currently there are sellers willing to do owner finance due to the banks being so hard tio qualify. There are sellers willing to finance for a few months even a couple of years just till buyer is able to qualify. Let me know what area you are intrested in.

BEWARE OF THE BELOW POSTER: BRANDON COPPOCK of "ownerfinancebuyers.com".

We were victims of a deal gone bad and we were actually "owner finance buyers" ourselves in his program to help people with bad credit buy a home....

SEE OUR STORY HERE: http://ownerfinancebuyers.biz (not to be confused with the company itself, but a warning to other Owner Finance buyers.)

I can set up a search for you for sellers that are willing to do owner financing.  These sellers typically own the property free and clear and a fresh title search and loan documents would be set up.  Most banks these days require the loan to be paid off as soon as the seller sells the house.  Feel free to contact me with your search criteria such as price range, where you are looking and what type of property you are looking for, and I will be happy to set up the search for you.

Be careful on owner financed property. If the owner does not pay his lender and pockets the money you are giving them you could lose your entire investment and wind up without a place to live. If you cannot qualify for financing I suggest you rent while seeking credit counseling so one day you can buy. A local organization called Acorn may be able to help.

It sounds like you are asking how to get a list of properties that offer owner/seller financing.  This is found in MLS listings after the heading "Terms".  A realtor can provide this information.  Note:  some "sellers" are banks and they would like to offer you financing too!

With all the respect to the other professionals and contributors to Zillow.  I disagree with both of the agents below.  A seller shouldn't access their risk by the amount of down payment that a buyer can contribute.  It is a combination of the down payment and the amount of time that it will take that buyer to refinance. 

For example:  If it is the sellers goal to cash out of the property, and the buyer has 5% down and it will take them 6 months to refinance.  Or a buyer with 20% down but will take them 36 months to reinance.  Well you just turned away a 5% buyer and ultimatly created a long-term problem for your seller.

Additionally if your seller doesn't have the equity to accomodate a larger down payment you've set them up to fail.  I have successfully completed over 360 owner finance transactions and have been featured on several national publications, television, and radios as it pertains to owner finance transactions.

If you or any agents have any questions or need assistance take a look at our website at [link removed by moderator]

Alma Kee is right.  We just did one like that.  The seller had a unique property and the buyer had a lot of cash but not good credit and did not show much money on the books.  The seller held a mortgage with 40% down even though it was not offered that way.

Be creative and make an offer.

If you need "owner" financing then you will need to have a substantial down payment to offset the seller's risk.

Are you in a financial position to put down a large percentage of the purchase price?

Also be careful of "lease option" and other plans as I've seen owners who are in foreclosure collect lease money and option money and then get foreclosed.  You will have great difficulty getting your money back.
