Subcategories

In these transactions, the purchaser is required to take on all the obligations of homeownership, while making monthly payments to the seller, but can be evicted like a tenant for missing a single payment. Now, Wall Street-backed investors are using these transactions to turn a profit off the glut of foreclosed homes around the country.
