Rent-to-own options are few and far between in the area. The ones that are available, you would spend about twice as much on it, as you would if you did a conventional purchase, where you purchase a home with a mortgage.
If you are looking at rent-to-own because of credit issues, I think it is wise to work on building your credit to where you could get a mortgage, instead of taking on another debt. The last thing you want to do on a lifetime investment like a home purchase, is to settle for a home just because it is rent-to-own.
You can visit my website here about Purchasing a Home with Bad Credit. It tells you what the minimum credit score is to get a mortgage, how to check your credit score for free, and a straight-forward way to build your credit up. You can also contact me through the website if you have any specific questions. http://www.soldbyavery.net/general/purchasing-a-home-with-ba
