Do you have rent or lease to own homes?

Yes and no.

No. They're not listed here that way. (There are lots and lots of threads on that question. See, for instance, http://www.trulia.com/voices/Using_Trulia/can_trulia_help_me…

Yes. Some of the homes listed here for sale are possible rent-to-own homes. Similarly, some of the rentals are. But you (or your agent) have to make it happen. You have to make that proposal to the seller or the landlord.

Here's a link to a blog I wrote on how to find rent-to-own properties: http://bit.ly/findaleaseoption

Hope that helps.

Actually they are listed as owner will carry or lease option in the MLS. Therefore, in working with a local professional Realtor it will make all the difference to your experience. They can negotiate the price and the length of the term for you and many other things that come with experience.

Try Craigslist of lease options or rent to own. But be careful, the odds are usually stacked on the side of the savvy investor selling the house on a lease-option. Most people who buy on lease options never take ownership, b/c they are not able to get to the point where they can get a loan. Be careful you only agree on a fair current market price, do not give up much cash for your option consideration money, try to negotiate a long lease-option and negotiate a portion of your payment to go towards paying down the principle.

Consider working with an agent of your own; not all rent to own are categorized as such...
