Creative Home Financing

Here's something to make you smile on this Friday!  I had to share this picture of a sign advertising a home for sale with creative home financing!  This certainly isn't a home selling technique I have ever used, but you have to give these home sellers points for originality!

Funny sign. Is that something you found in your area, or did you just see it on the web?

In the days when houses actually went up in value we often heard homeowners say that the “are sitting on a gold mine.” Guess these folks took that belief a literally!

Ana - This is definitely creative and/or very definitive but limiting.  Still very funny.

Not a bad idea, gold is worth more than the almighty dollar these days. Ana is this an actual house for sale in your area?

I guess that it must be so overpriced that even cash won't qualify! LOL

Fun photo! Gold is doing pretty well nowdays, this is very funny by the seller. However, if the buyers do have the gold, maybe they rather keep that and spend the actual cash on the house instead of keeping it in the bank.

That is so funny. I just had a client ask if her could buy a house with gold!! I guess I gave him the wrong answer!
