In order to buy a home, you really need to be working with a REALTOR. They might be able to find "rent to own" listings in your area. But... keep in mind these deals are never a good option for the buyer. They were a lot more common back when we were in a buyer's market and sellers were desperate.

This means that an offer was accepted on a home, but the seller still has an opportunity to market their home for sale to other prospective buyers. "Show" status, under the CT MLS system, is the first stage of being on deposit. A seller has accepted an offer, but the offer is contingent on a number of factors including: home inspection, financing contingencies, attorney approval & the buyer putting forth all deposit money. Until these contingencies are met, the seller's agent will continue to market the home. Homes on "Show" Status are still featured in internet advertising, and many agents still allow prospective buyers to preview the home.
When a home goes on "DEPOS" on "ON DEPOSIT" status, then the home is no longer marketed to buyers.
