FAQ

Owner Financing

Owner Financing means that the seller (Western Land Company)  is willing to sell the property to you the buyer without requiring the entire purchase price to be paid up front. The seller is willing to accept monthly payments until the property is paid in full at which time the title will transfer. Owner financing works much like an automobile loan and is a fantastic method for buyers and investors to acquire property.

We make it VERY easy for anyone to own land. The only qualification is that you agree to the monthly payment terms and pay your initial low down payment.

With the financial crisis of 2008 mortgage lending has become VERY difficult and getting loans to invest in land is almost impossible without a substantial down payment (50% of the purchase price) along with very high interest rates. Banks require two ears tax returns, good credit etc. etc. Forget about that! We don’t need any banks!

Western Land Company is the exact opposite of the mortgage banks. Our rates are extremely LOW and our down payment amounts are generally only 3% or less. We only need your name and mailing address. There are NO credit checks, NO employment verification and NO income qualification required for you to own the land of your choice.

Let us help you take advantage of the leverage of OPM. (other peoples money) to invest in the greatest asset available. Land.

No,  there is NEVER a balloon payment in our financing agreement. You can pay off your land at any time however, you will never be required to do so.

Be very careful when considering owner/seller financing on any type of real estate or land. I often see balloon payments in the fine print and wonder if the buyer fully understands the consequence of this provision.

Let’s clarify what a balloon payment is as it pertains to real estate and land contracts and why you should NOT agree to including one:

When you finance land from us, you may have a loan term of 7 years (84 months)  as an example with a monthly payment of $200. With us, you will pay off your land completely with your 84th payment. (again, you can choose to pay if off sooner if you are able)

A contract that includes a balloon payment would still look to be structured the same with a term of 84 months and a monthly payment of $200 however the fine print may state that the entire loan balance is due and payable on the 48th month. This would be referred to in the finance world and labeled as a “Seven due in Four” (7 due in 4) which means that the loan is amortized over 7 years with a monthly payment of $200, however the entire loan balance is due and payable in the 48th month. You would need to have the cash to comply or be able to get a new loan to pay off the balloon in the 48th month or risk loosing your property to foreclosure.

DON’T DO THIS unless you know absolutely that you will have the cash. Better yet, just don’t agree to this type of financing.

As I mentioned, WE DO NOT include balloon payments in any of our land purchase agreements.

This is a great question. As you know we are partial to land in the Western USA for several reasons:

  • The western states have the most preferred climates. Many of our clients have plans to build a home and retire and live there dream life on their ranch land. They are mostly interested in investing in land with more mild year round climates such as those found in the Western States.
  • The western States have much lower property taxes in general and in the case of Nevada, there is No State Income Tax.
  • The west is wide open. Most of our clients are looking for solitude and privacy yet still want to have access to supplies and necessities. We specifically look for these types of properties to offer our investors.
  • Large parcels still exist in the Western States. One of our most preferred property sizes is 20 acres and above. Land is becoming more and more scarce. “They just are not making any more of it”. The western States are still much less populated and more wide open than any where else in the country.
