Do you arrange owner financing for the homes you sell?
Yes, we sell many homes with owner financing or by creating Lease Option situations. We are not Bankers or any other Financial Institution. Therefore, this program is limited by State Law. We also work closely with Licensed Mortgage Brokers who work with Lenders to find the right loan for you.
Do I need to qualify to rent or buy a home?
We are not extremely interested in your past credit status. Your ability to make reasonable monthly payments and your desire to become a member of the Carolina Group Properties family is what is really important to us.
How can I rent or buy a home if I have bad credit?
You can't go through conventional lenders, but you can with our help. We can set up owner financing or by creating Rent-to-Own situations to help improve your credit over time. We also work with mortgage brokers who may be able to arrange a loan for you. This Program is limited by State Law.
How much down payment do I need?
We are very flexible with your down payment. We can offer you many options and we always do our best work with whatever funds you have available. You can even start out on our Rent-to-Own program and then move to our owner financing program at a later date when you have the additional money.
What other methods of downpayment are accepted?
Unlike most lending institutions, we accept borrowed funds for closing. If you have a close friend or relative willing to lend you money for your down payment, you can use that with our program. You may also be eligible to withdraw or borrow from your 401k to purchase a home without penalities. We also accept trades.
Do you offer downpayment assistance programs?
Yes, we do. Many times, if you are a bit short on your down payment, we can set up a monthy payment plan to spread out over 6 to 12 months.
How does your Lease With the option to Purchase Program Work?
We can lease you the home with the exclusive right to purchase it at a later date. Our Buyers love it becasue it gives them the time they need to save for a larger down payment, time to clean up past credit problems, time to sell another home, and also time to try out the neighborhood before buying. 100% of your option fee/down payment is credited toward the purchase price of the home, plus you may be eligible to recieve a monthly credit towards the purchase price every time you pay your lease on time.
