Zillow Advice: Rent vs Buy - Are there ever any Owner Financed homes on here? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Are-there-ever-any-Owner-Financed-homes-on-here/444507/ Zillow Advice | Zillow Real Estate In my part of the country ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Are-there-ever-any-Owner-Financed-homes-on-here/444507/ In my part of the country it is very unlikely for a Seller to do an Owner financed type of program. Most want to be done with the process of selling and dont want to deal with a buyer who decides not to make the payments.

Your best bet maybe to look for FSBO's in your area who might be willing to consider an owner carry or rent to own. You might also contact a local agent to see if they know of any rent to own properties in your area.
