My popular eBook entitled ‘Understanding Land Contract Homes: In Pursuit of the American Dream‘ is now available in paperback. To order your copy click here.
This book covers the use of Land Contracts as a tool for residential real estate sales for both the buyer and the seller. It covers some of the important aspects of this transaction for both parties and what steps to take, as well as what to avoid. The book also offers credit repair advice for buyers who are using a land contract as a intermediary tool before qualifying for a mortgage at a later date.
Land Contracts are used most often when a person has a troubled credit history, and need time to repair it. The other use is when interest rates for conventional lending is soaring and selling financing a home will offer a lower interest rate for the buyer. There are many important insights imparted in this book to help both parties avoid trouble, as a land contract arrangement can often be a long term relationship between the seller and buyer.

In the last year I have been working on finally releasing many of the books I have written over the years, as well as created new ones from ideas I have. I began with eBooks in December of 2011, and released two books on the subject of Land Contract Homes. I followed with books sharing my experience and background in sales management as well as marketing, along with two books helping artist vendors who attend arts and crafts shows (which I have had experience with in the past).
In the last few months I have been working hard at converting many of these books into paperback based on demands from my readership. I am happy to state that as of this writing I have released six of my books into print, and have two more that will be released before Thanksgiving. The two coming out before Thanksgiving are my original two books on Land Contract Homes. Those titles are: ‘Understanding Land Contract Homes: In Pursuit of the American Dream‘ and ‘Land Contract Homes for Investors‘.
All of my print books will be available through Amazon and Barnes & Noble online. I have also set up a Facebook page as an author at: www.facebook.com/MichaelDelawareAuthor and also a page on Goodreads at: www.Goodreads.com/MichaelDelaware. Take some time to check those out and follow me there. If you would like to see a complete list of my books, go to my Author page on Amazon at: www.Amazon.com/Author/MichaelDelaware
In my travels through the rural communities in the past few weeks, I had to go to a small township just Southeast of Coldwater. It is a small community called ‘California’ and it has a population of about 900 people, and a small town called ‘Ray’ as part of it which actually sits on the Michigan-Indiana State line. I have traveled to a lot of rural communities in the past several years, but the sign below caught my attention. I had to take a picture, just to mix up everyone’s geography,
Last week I was driving through St. Joseph County on my way to Three Rivers, and I drove into a snow storm. On my return trip back it got pretty thick, and I had my camera on the seat next to me and I snapped this photo. The weather can get pretty intense in Michigan at times, and one needs to be alert for the road suddenly turning slippery. I always try to monitor the outside temperature as a matter of routine whenever I am driving in the country at this time of year, as roads can become suddenly icy.
I recently created a new cover design for my book: Land Contract Homes for Investors. It was released in December of 2012, and is the companion book to Understanding Land Contract Homes: In Pursuit of the American Dream. This new edition includes updated links, and revised Author and Publisher pages. Today on February 14th, you can download this eBook for free on Kindle! Just click on the image below! Happy Valentines Day!
Going out on an icy pond can be dangerous for humans, but nothing would stop a goose. I was at a park a few weeks back and took the photo below of some geese napping on the ice near the edge of where the water meets the ice. There was a lot of activity with other birds going on nearby, but they appeared to be undisturbed by all the commotion. Enjoying a morning snooze.
