Not sure about a lease, but you can co-sign for him on a mortgage and not have to occupy the home. Would he be interested in purchasing a home? My office is in Murfreesboro and would be happy to speak with you all. My direct line is 615-913-8862.
I can certainly refer you to one of my fabulous realtor partners. I've been involved on the financing side of buying property now for almost 20 years. Please contact me if you would like a referral to one of my realtor partners.
