$100,000 property for sale seller wants $!0,000 DN. seller will carry ballance(or Take back a mortgage) this means a seller will finance the sale if you sign a promissory note that says you promise to pay a total of $90,000 with payments of $789.82 per Mo. (30 Yr. Amortized at 10% Intrest)and as security for this loan from the seller you need collateral that’s where the mortgage comes in it says(among other things) that if you dont pay on the promissory note as agreed then you will give the house back as collateral. Hope this helps ,hang in there, keep on asking.
