What do you love about living in Daphne, Alabama?

Some of the things I love and enjoy about Daphne Alabama is the small town atmosphere with big city entertainment. Several Art Festivals take place annually; you're just up the street from Mardi Gras and holiday parades; beaches and well-kept parks are just a few steps from your front door and there's plenty of shopping, biking, walking paths, great golf courses and plenty of marked sites for the birding enthusiast. And these are just some of the things I love about Daphne!

Owner Financing

When a homeowner has difficulty selling his or her home in a buyer’s market such as we are now experiencing with tight lender guidelines, owner financing is a desirable option for both seller and buyer.  How this works is that the seller carries the purchase price – minus the down payment provided by the buyer.

If there are no loans on the property and  it is owned by the seller free and clear, one of the many types of financing includes a land contract.  In this type of transaction, the buyer obtains equitable title.  Legal title does
