This is a great option for many people who can not meet the stricter lending requirements in the current market.
The right realtor can be very useful. However not all realtors handle rent to own.
If you find you must do this on your own, search your local MLS for older listings and make calls asking if the owner might consider rent to own. Offer to construct an offer that would include the realtor being paid a percentage of the monthly rent, or guaranteeing the realtors commission at close, or whatever will work for all parties.
Also search for vacant homes in the area you wish to buy and get owners names at the courthouse and call.
Craigs list is a great resource as has been noted here. But also put your own ad on Craigs list. Stae what you are looking for. This is a great idea. Good Luck
2 of the main sources for available homes are Craig's List and the Realtor database known as the Multiple Listing Service. Regardless of the source for the home itself, a skilled Realtor can acquaint you with the rent-to-own process, and will assist you every step of the way, right up through moving in!
In view of our historically low interest rates, as well as the selection of homes for outright sale currently on the market, you might also wish to have that Realtor get you the final word on whether you might be able to complete a straight purchase instead, sooner than you think. You might be pleasantly surprised, and owning outright beats a lease situation all day long!
But with either approach, a Realtor will be your best friend, saving you valuable time and protecting your interests!
