Compound Interest for Land Loans
Loans can be a tricky business, and hard to understand. One confusing part of the loan that can be difficult to understand is the interest. There are 2 types of interest that can be used for your land loan: simple and compound.
Simple interest works by charging interest only on the principal amount of your loan, and it is a fixed rate for the entire lifetime of your loan. Simple interest isn’t standard and isn’t used by most banks or lenders.
Compound interest works by charging interest not only on the principal amount of your loan but also on any accrued interest. The land loan calculator uses compound interest because that is standard practice for banks and lenders in the United States.
Why Owner Finance Land?
Why does owner financing for land even exist? Can’t I just go get a bank loan like I would for my house? Or a hard money lender like I would for my car? It can be really difficult for you to get a loan for a land purchase for 2 reasons.
- The land itself is the only on-site collateral to the loan
- In the eyes of the banks, land is not easily converted to a built home
This means that banks and other traditional lending institutions don’t like that the land itself is the only collateral, they prefer to have a structure like a house or some other tangible asset on the land.
And often, the purpose of a land purchase is to enjoy it recreationally – not to make it your immediate primary residence. And that’s the key here because unless you’re building on it and making it your primary residence right away, it’s very unlikely that you would get a traditional land loan if you wanted to buy land to hunt, as an investment, camp, or use recreationally.
Because of those 2 points, investors like myself will owner finance properties for you. This means that we will carry the loan for you, so you don’t need to involve a bank or other lenders. That’s why this process is sometimes also referred to as “owner will carry” or “seller will hold”, because we hold the financing and manage it for you.
So, instead of making payments to the bank, you would make payments to the property owner. Sometimes for larger value properties like 20,30, 50k, and up, the loan will be managed through a title company instead.
