How to Effectively Use Seller Financing When Selling Your Campground

Introduction: Challenges in Selling your Campground

Do you feel like you’re stuck in a never-ending episode of ‘Survivor’ trying to sell your campground? Do you find yourself wishing for an immunity idol to protect you from the harsh realities of high interest rates and financing challenges? Well, my fellow entrepreneurs, legacy-builders, and stewards of family businesses, you’re in luck!

The Potential of Seller Financing

So, let’s press play on your bigger ideas and breathe life into campground ownership. How? By diving into the wild world of seller financing!

Navigating the Interest Rate Jungle

In the current interest rate jungle, selling your Campground can seem as daunting as wrestling a grizzly bear. But fear not! Many are considering seller financing as a viable option. Now, I know what you’re thinking: “Seller financing? Isn’t that like asking me to juggle flaming torches?” Well, not exactly.

The Benefits and Risks of Seller Financing

Imagine this scenario. You’re selling your campground, but instead of jumping through fiery hoops for an SBA loan at 10 or 11 percent (plus all the fees they tack on top), you sell it at an eight percent interest rate. You carry the note, and the new buyer makes their payments to you instead of the bank. Sounds promising, right?

Yes, there are risks involved. The buyer could default on their payments, leaving you to go after the collateral. And let’s be honest, nobody wants to be the repo man, repossessing and foreclosing on a campground that might have been run into the ground. But with the right precautions and a well-structured agreement, seller financing could provide you with a steady stream of income and potentially a better return on your investment than most CDs, money market accounts, or retirement accounts.

Conclusion: Is Seller Financing Right For You?

We won’t sugarcoat it – seller financing is indeed a big deal. It requires knowing your buyer well, having faith in them, and securing collateral to back it all up. But when done right, it could be a game-changer.

Intrigued? Want to learn more about how to navigate the wilderness of seller financing when selling your campground? Or perhaps you need some guidance on making the best decision for your business? Either way, we’re here to help. Check out our website at
