  • REFINANCING your MN, WI, or SD Contract For Deed

    contract for deed refinance

    Many people, especially the last few years have bought a home on a Contract-for-Deed, sometimes also known as a land contract. Generally speaking, most of the contracts are balloon loans with higher interest rates, and have payments based over 30-years, but the contract for deed is due in full in just 3-years to 5-years. Therefore many people are currently in need of a refinance to pay off their contract-for-deed.

    Many people believe they need to purchase the home at the end of the contract, but actually, you already own the home! Therefore your just need to do a standard refinance. If it was a purchase, you would need a down payment. Because it is a refinance, we base the loan off the appraised value, so most people are able to refinance their contract-for-deed with little to no money out of pocket, except for the cost of an appraisal. Of course like any other loan, there are closing costs - but you are able to roll those closing costs into the new loan!
