Not to sound negative about this but there are so many different facets to the lease option that it rarely works out on paper...for someone.
I am a Realtor, so, I get paid to sell homes, but I like to thing beyond that. I am someone who helps people see past the initial interest and look at the big picture. So, part of that, for some people sometimes, is not to own a property, during a period of their lives or maybe ever. Homeownership is a something that we think about as being really important and there is probably a time for your to own a home, you might not just be quite ready yet.
Let me know if I or another member of my team can assist you with getting settled now and making a plan about housing for your future.
Very few opportunities doing rent vs own. I have lenders that if you qualify that can get you into a purchase for as little as 1/2 percent down. Visit PropertiesinVentura.com for more information or contact me direct.
