Thank you for the response. I’d like to look over the Net Lease and Option forms that you use, please email a copy to me. This is new territory for me, I am very happy to have this board available. Thank you.

Hello everyone,
I could use a little advice. My Daughter in Colorado has finally found a buyer for a trailer that I bought for her many years ago. The buyer doesn’t have financing and would like us to carry the loan. I am happy to do this, but I’m unsure of the going interest rate for this type of note. This is also my first time carrying a note and I could use some guidance writing the contract. Can anyone recommend a lawyer (preferably in Colorado) who is familiar with putting this type of contract together. Your input is most appreciated. Thank you.

Greg, people in the business of selling mobile homes charge interest rates ranging from 11% to 18%. We have charged 14.5% on most of our sales. I believe Lonnie charges 12.75%.

What matters to most buyers is “how much down and how much per month.” You are getting a few hundred down, aren’t you?

If there is a gain or taxable profit on the sale, you might want to consider a Lease-Purchase arrangement in order to pay taxes as the money is received.

If you would like to have a copy of the Net Lease and Option forms we use, please advise and I can e-mail them to you.
