Well Don Mituzas, that was a rather harsh answer. Maybe this potential client is just wanting an option that doesn't necessarily involve getting into a lifetime contract in case of career, location, or life changes. You sir are what makes home buyers more likely to purchase through a private seller vs allowing a realtor to help them. That assumption was premature as some people simply have poor credit because of silly mistakes they made when young, such as credit card debt, hospital bills, etc. It says absolutely nothing about their character and instead of pushing away people interested in purchasing a home with bad credit, do your job and assist them in finding a financial adviser to help them get where they need to be

Not sure why people are still answering a question that was asked 2 1/2 years ago, but as I had said before, people looking for a rent to own usually have poor credit and a smart homeowner would probably not even rent to them to start with. If you have good credit the time to buy is now. Interest rates are at historic lows. There is still 100% financing available in certain situations if you have decent credit. In more than 20 years in real estate I have never seen nor heard of a rent to own being successful.

I don not know other state, I live in Columbia, SC. In our multiple listings which is for the realtor, there is an option that you can pull all the homes that the seller is willing to do rent with option to buy, If you are in Columbia, area, I can pull it for you

All applications for Renting a home require an application and a fee for anyone over 18 for processing. This is Texas State Law. If you submit an application and pay the fee, it is usually refunded if someone else is accepted other than you.

Wow there truly are a lot of people that are idiots aren't there? The question has NOTHING to do with fees at the home itself.... It has nothing to do with finding a realtor. Let me make this really simple. If you will go through these steps you will understand the question : 1. Do a google search for, "rent to own homes in ( whatever zip code you live in, or city). 2. Go to at least 5 of the websites that show rent to own properties. 3. Note that the website itself is asking people to pay a fee before they can look at any of the listings. That is the fee that is being asked about. Now, to answer the actual question, I do not see any other option then to pay the fee...hopefully it's just the $1 trial that you end up spending....or you can try the ones that are free if you pull your credit through them but I'd be really skeptical thatyouareaboutto hand over sensitive information to a thief. Lastly, actually talking to a realtor may helpyoulandthis rent to own situation if you don't let them sell you into buying something way above your means, always remember that you are dealing with a salesman, they will try to squeeze as much money from you as possible.

Talk to a realtor. If you have a good realtor, they may be able to turn a rental or for sale property into a rent to own situation for you. For some of us, rent to own is the only option. In my case, we have three dogs. Most rentals only allow two. Rent to own allowed us to have our dogs and find a home for our family. We tried USDA and FHA and other low down payment options. But because we got caught up in the bubble and were forced into bankruptcy due to shady lender practices, we had to wait. And when we thought our waiting period was over, we found out we were mistaken. We discharged a home in our bankruptcy and now have a ghost foreclosure dated 5 years after our bankruptcy, again, because of shady lender practices. Because the bank did not do their job in the months after our bankruptcy, we will have to wait ANOTHER two years minimum for financing a purchase through a bank. Rent to own is a great option - IF you can find a house you love and IF your realtor can work a good deal with the seller. Some of these homes that have been on the market for months are a good place to start.

Rent to own offers must be carefully examined to make sure they provide the best for your situation. I would suggest you find a Real Estate agent that you feel comfortable with and is knowledgeable about the local market and the different ways of becoming a home owner. You might find that there are mortgage products that you would qualify for that could put you in a home that is better for you. If you need further suggestions you can contact me and I can provide you with contact information in your area. Best wishes.

There are not many rent to own homes. It is hard to find them because they don't work for the sellers and the buyers. You will not have the choice in homes because of the financing. Usually the seller will require a large downpayment. It is best to rent and then when you are ready to purchase, purchase a home based on the home that you need and not the financing.

Laverne, There are several options, one is your local paper, another is online listings locally like CraigsList, and another is a local Realtor! Yes without a finders fee! Often a local Realtor can negotiate a deal for you with a home owner for a lease purchase and it will cost you no more money than doing it yourself. The Realtor can negotiate a fee that comes from the purchase price and is paid out either in several distributions from the seller (i.e. a small amount to them from your downpayment, then either monthly or quarterly payments, or the balance at the time you procure financing to fulfill the purchase). Good luck! Jenn Smith

answer by Amer Khan   
Laverne .. Sorry, I thought Trudi had asked the question. It seems that this forum is just full of realtors and there aren't any real home buying folks here. They don't understand that the fee is not for the actual rent to own but for the website (mostly scams) that are trying to sell you the information. I'm someone like yourself and have the same problem. While I have not found the appropriate place I would want, I have been able to look in realtor dot com for rental properties and selecting the lease-to-own option in the search. Also, Trulia Rental site is pretty good and some of the rentals tell you that the property is also for sale. In those cases, I would contact the realtor and just ask them. In some cases, the realtor checks with the owner and the owner is willing to do this. I would suggest to look over the property well before agreeing to this contract. Another bit of advice, please spend a few hundred bucks and have a good real estate attorney look over the contract - I'd hate to see you or anyone else left holding the bag due to some silly clause you violated. If you need to discuss my experience, please feel free to contact me at amerhyat @ gmail . Com
