There are a bunch of how-to-articles on this subject. Read them all.

Generally you use 2 documents. A lease and an option. You would still hold the title until your tenant/buyer actually got their own financing (either from you or a lender).

We would need to know some more numbers but here it goes anyways.

You run ad and get someone that wants to l/o it for a year. You collect 3-7% upfront as option consideration from this person (sort of like a down payment…but it is not)…
You then sign 2 separate contracts with them…a lease and a option.

Sale Price $85,000
Monthly rent?? $800
1 year term (they can buy it tomorrow or in 12 months or never…the option money is however non-refundable!).
I have left out lots of “little” important details…but cant teach you how to do it in one posting.

Hope this helps…
