Contract for Deed

Contract for deed is a real estate technique used when sellers finance all or part of the mortgage loan. The seller executes a contract which details the terms of the sale. Both the seller and buyer must sign the contract and have it notarized in order for it to be legally binding. The seller retains the property deed until contract terms are fulfilled.

The most common uses of contract for deed include lease-to-own, land contracts, and seller carry back mortgages. While contract for deed has been used for decades, this type of financing has become quite popular in recent months.
