Who holds title in owner financing?

You, the buyer, sign both a promissory note (promising to repay the loan) and either a mortgage or a deed of trust (allowing the seller to foreclose if you fail to pay). In return, the seller signs a deed transferring title to you. Because you hold the title, you can sell the house or refinance.

How does owner financing affect taxes?

When you sell with owner financing and report it as an installment sale, it allows you to realize the gain over several years.
