Hamptons buyers turn to sellers for financing

By Sara Polsky

As lending dries up, some hopeful Hamptons buyers are turning to a new source of financing — the homeowner.

But Michael Daly, principal broker at True North Realty Associates, said he has seen a decrease in owner financing in the Hamptons since last fall.

Sellers are still too nervous about the economy to turn en masse to owner financing, Daly said. “I think that current owners…have a healthy level of concern about being stuck with buyers who may default….Unless you’re prepared to take back your property, it’s probably not wise to offer owner financing.”

At the same time, it could be “an excellent way of helping make some deals happen right now, because the mortgage offerings are so strict and it’s common for people to have to put down more and more,” Daly said. If a seller could add 10 or 20 percent to the financing offered through a conventional mortgage — that could save a deal.
