Rent-To-Own homes in Orlando, FL?

We're military coming from Germany to our home Orlando, Florida in May/June.

We are looking for rent-to-own homes. Not sure if this site has any on here or where I can find one.
We'll be stationed in Orlando for the next 3 years, but these 3 years are his last with the Army and we're staying in Orlando. Looking for a permanent home. Preferably 4 rooms, 2+ bathrooms, and a yard (prefer fenced) as we have four small dogs. We're a young couple with no children yet, but we're planning for the future. :-D

We don't want to be too far from the parks as I am a former Disney Cast Member and Universal Studios Team Member and will be going back to my jobs.
We don't want to spend more than $800 a month and don't want a house more than $150k.
We are very friendly. We don't throw loud parties or anything like that.

If there is a way to search for rent-to-own homes specifically on this site, please let me know as I seem to can't find it. And if not, maybe there is an agent on here that can help us? We have never owned a home before.

I appreciate any and all information you can give me.
:-)

Thanks!
Stephanie

Hi Stephanie, First of all, Welcome to Orlando! :-) In recent times with all the foreclosures and short sale, many people that once owned property are now back to renting, which in turn has increased the demand for rentals in the area and pushed rental prices up. Also, having pets will decrease the amount of rentals that you can apply for. To rent in the Orange county a house you will most likely have to increase your rental per month or consider a condo or townhome. Osceola County prices are a bit lower and I can see what's available. My offices are located close to Universal Studios on Sand Lake Rd. Please email me and I can start sending you properties that are available in the rental market that will be pet friendly. Hope this info helps!

I can check for "rent to own" homes but in today's market I generally do NOT recommend it because, in general you usually pay more up front for the right to purchase later and there are way too many people who are not making payments on their homes and you could make your payments and upfront money to the "seller" to only find out down the road that the person has not been making the payments to the bank and you would lose all the advantage of "renting to own". If you know you want to stay here, why not look at an outright purchase - a $100,000 mortgage right now would have about a $500 a month principal and interest payment plus your taxes and insurance and a $150,000 is about $750 plus taxes and insurance for a 30 year mortgage. If you are not ready to do that, I would recommend you do an outright rent, but try to pick the area you want to live in. I have been helping families buy and sell homes in the area for over 28 years and have worked with many military people in the area. Let me know if I can answer any other questions.
