장점 Advantages for sellers in owner (seller)-financing situations:
- Tax breaks: The seller may want to take advantage of tax laws that allow deferral of capital gain on installment sale. Instead of paying taxes on the capital gains all in that first year, the seller pay a much smaller amount as she/he receives the income. (Usually Tax breaks will only apply in case of solo seller financing for whole purchase price)
-Higher sales price with higher interest rate: Because the seller is offering the financing, the seller usually expect a higher sale price in return.
단점 Disadvantages for sellers in seller financing: the problems involved in a potential foreclosure.
Depending on whether the financing instrument is a mortgage or a deed of trust, the seller must take the 'appropriate steps' to foreclose. (The Worst-case scenario would be the total time for a judicial foreclosure proceeding could be as much as 2-4 years)
