These terms are subject to change at any time. For the most updated rates please contact us directly.
There are two financing options available to borrowers seeking contract for deed financing that are largely dependent on where the property is located within Minnesota.
For borrowers who are looking to purchase luxury real estate we lend up to a 1M purchase price. Please contact us directly for special financing terms.

- 20% minimum down payment
- minimum purchase price $150,000 single family homes

Qualifications and Getting Started With The Pre- Approval Process
- Minimum total household income of $45,000
- No pre-payment penalty
- Bad credit OK (no credit check is performed)
- 3-5 year balloon payment
- Only owner occupied properties (real estate investors are excluded)
- No land, condos, or commercial property. Townhouses accepted.
- No manufactured homes (must have a foundation)
- No refinances if you currently own a contract for deed property
The following is needed to issue a pre-approval:
- 2 years most recent tax returns (bank statements for self employed)
- Electronic statement to verify down payment
- 2 most recent pay stubs if W2 earner
- Copy of photo I.D such as driver’s license or passport
We need to verify your income, employment, and down payment in order to issue the pre approval. Once the loan application is completed you can go home shopping!
There are zero out-of-pocket costs to you during the purchase
The seller shall pay closing & title fees on our acquisition of property. We do our best to negotiate this without affecting the purchase price, but there is a possibility closing closing costs will get wrapped into the loan amount effecting price marginally.
Instead, how we profit is selling the home to you at a higher purchase price than what we paid for the home at closing on a contract for deed.
Why do this in contract for deed?
In Minnesota charging any out-of-pocket fees to the borrower in a contract for deed transaction is not allowed.
By wrapping the 3-5% into your loan amount we will have to wait until you refinance before realizing this capital gain as the investor, which potentially could be the full 5 year term. It creates a win-win situation where we only profit if you are successful in obtaining bank financing.
Here is any easy loan example:
- We purchase the home you pick out for $200,000
- At the closing table we sell it to you on a contract for deed at $206,000 (3% more than what we paid for it)
- Your Down Payment & Loan will all be based off the $206,000 sales price
- Down Payment (20% used in this example) = $41,200
- Loan Amount = $164,800
- Monthly Payment (7.75% interest rate) = $1,180.65
Keep in mind for budgeting purposes you will pay property taxes, association dues (if applicable), & homeowner insurance separately. The homeowner insurance premiums can vary widely as credit does play a role, so you will want to speak with your insurance person early in the process to get an idea of cost for budgeting.
