Nonprofits are using this alternative home-financing option to help prospective buyers who cannot yet qualify for a traditional mortgage.
“The mortgage and credit crunch has hit many Minnesotans especially hard, but one group is working to put people in homes, while at the same time restoring their credit.

If the buyer is successful in the program, that person can transition out of the contract-for-deed into a traditional, fixed-rate bank mortgage.”
