Just curious...

I spoke with two different people recently. Both were female but both were married and largely talking for the couple as a unit. Both cases the couple was retired.

At some point in the past each couple had sold a property of some sort. For what ever reason at the time they decided to provide seller-financing to the buyer.

The comment made by both was something along the lines of...

"I am getting 8% interest and that is a lot better then the alternatives."

Any views as to if 8% is a good return for a secured investment? Yes, I know the security for the investment is something they owned before. I am just curious as to how other fools would respond/react to 8%. These ladies really like the return.
