Don't get me wrong, real estate agents provide a much-needed service to the community. They also come with expertise that the average person simply does not have with regard to how and when to sell a home. However, particularly if you have a willing buyer in mind and the patience to jump through the hoops yourself, selling your home is not as complicated as it may seem and may save you significant dollars.
A Contract for Deed (C4D) is a way to sell and purchase real estate on an installment basis. It is perhaps most often used in residential real estate where the buyer cannot otherwise obtain traditional bank financing, and the seller is willing and able to in effect act as the buyer's "banker" for the transaction.
