Hello Kimarra! If Lease-to-Buy is your primary preference, you best option would be to consider small 2-3 unit multifamily properties. In most cases, these type properties will be owned by Investors who recently completed interior renovations and would express interest in a proposed Lease-to-Buy option. Financing terms (interest rate + monthly principal amount applied towards future purchase) would be determined by the Landlord. Lastly, plan on making a downpayment (percentage at landlord's discretion) as Landlord will require an upfront financial commitment. Hope this helps and feel free to respond for further discussion.
You mentioned an apartment building. It's not likely that you can buy an apartment, if the building is a condo or co-op building, you might have the option to do a option to buy with a seller. An real estate agent can assist you either way.
One way to do that is to talk to a local real estate agent and ask them to search for which units are for sale or for rent in that apartment and then find out if any of them will offer a possible lease with an option to buy.
