My house is for rent, and I would consider a rent to own situation. It is being managed by OneProp. The current tenant had surgery recently, so she was not letting it be shown until now. She will vacate on 10/10. The address is 8048 Colbi and the pics and info are on Trulia. Check it out.

This is not a good choice, too many scams not evean an agent will suggest this choice.

You are desperate!
Your Credit or Finances, or both, will not allow you to go the conventional route:
You need the Seller to help you out!

The Seller will know it, and you are going to pay dearly for this service:
There aren't too many altruistic Sellers out there.

The terms that can be written into a Lease/Option can be dangerous to you:
How long is the Option period?
How much money are you putting in to the Option?
What happens if you are not able to execute the Option?
How do you know what your financial situation will be 2-5 years from now?
How much is the rent in the meantime?
Who will be responsible for maintenance and repair in the meantime?
What will be the Market Value of the home in 2-5 years?
What will be the Selling price 2-5 years from now?

This is the Ultimate Caveat Emptor!
