How can I search for houses for rent or sell without giving out all of my information or using my credit card information or without asking about my credit score. All I want to see is price of thee house or home for rent without asking all these question point blank.

You need to contact a real estate agent in your area to assist you in your search. There are also plenty of free sites that list rent to own properties. I would advise you not to pay any site for real estate information.

You should not have to pay anything to find excellent professional assistance in locating Rent-to-Own properties. Please contact a real estate professional in your area. He or she can email you properties or even get print copies to you if need be, at no cost.

Asking for money up front to search for any type of online listings is a classic indicator of a con. Steer clear and contact a real estate professional who can help you.

Do not give out credit card info or personal information just to see a listing. Anyone asking for this information is not quite legitimate. Contact a local realtor who specializes in Rent-To-Own properties.

There is no reason that you should need to give a credit card or personal information to search listings, in any category (rent to own, rent/lease, purchase, etc.). Any good realtor will provide you with the information and guidance to help you achieve your purchase goal without either of the 2 aforementioned requests. My advice: steer clear of services that ask for payment up front. On a separate subject, "rent to own", or lease options are a slippery slope. Be careful and - again - consult a professional.

Most homeowners willing to rent-to-own do so because their house isn't selling. It may be overpriced for the area or it may be in need of serious repair. The best way for you to make sure you don't get in legal trouble is to find a Realtor with a property management specialist to help you.

Buyer beware, when considering " rent-to-own homes. " A rent-to-own agreement falls in a legal gray-zone between renting and home ownership. Many people who rent-to-own, end up evicted and loose money they have put into the home and/or the money they have paid into the agreement. I am not an advocate for rent-to-own, because I have never worked with a buyer/tenant who ever came out on top, in our market. Most sellers willing to the rent-to-own agreement are usually asking more money than the property is worth. Make sure you have exhausted any/all other housing options before considering a rent-to-own agreement. If you do find a rent-to-own option, be sure you hire an attorney, to look out for your best interest. Good luck!
