What is a Contract For Deed?
A contract for deed is an arrangement between the buyer and the seller where buyer makes payments to the seller for a specified period of time until all of the balance owed is completely paid off or a balloon payment is due. A contract for deed works similar to a typical mortgage except seller of the property is “the bank” who buyer is making monthly payments to.
Most of contract for deed sales in Minnesota would be structured with a 3-5 years balloon, interest rates ranging between 5-8% and a downpayment of about 10% (depending on the seller and the property). Balloon payment or the remaining balance owed to the seller would typically be financed through a bank or private party lender. If for any reason, buyer is unable to make a ballon payment, contract can be extended if both parties agree.
In a contract for deed home transaction, seller holds legal title to the property while buyer holds equitable title to the property. When buyer meets all of the requirements of the contract, seller is required to transfer legal title to the buyer. Equitable title allows a buyer to enjoy all of the benefits of home ownership. Buyer can live in it, rent it out, update/improve it and do anything that a typical home owner would do. However, buyer is unable to borrow equity funds against it, since he is not a legal title holder.
How Does Contract For Deed Monthly Payment Get Calculated?
Usually, monthly payments are structured just like any other mortgage payments except that you (as a buyer) would pay a higher interest rate (5-8% opposed to less than 4%) than you would financing the property through the bank. Your monthly payment would consist of interest and principal. Every time you make a payment, your interest portion would get reduced and principal portion would increase (However, your total payment amount would remain the same).
