Check out this house that I have listed for rent. I would rather have a person interested in a lease to own. http://www.trulia.com/rental/3079268536-Single-Family-Home-Richmond-VA-23223?ecampaign=rentals_sls_crosspost_cl
You can sign a lease and then if you like it and want to own it we can help you after you have had a chance to settle in.
I am a specialist in the Brookland Park neighborhood and also live there. I have renovated several homes and just sold one there this month. Would be happy to work with you if you have not found someone to do so yet.
