Mark Rebert’s answer
I know of two properties available right now in the Lampeter-Strasburg School District. Each Rent-To-Own or Lease Purchase property is unique. Some owners require a large deposit while others just care about credit score. The reality is you need to have one of those two things otherwise you are going to be taken and really should focus on renting.

I have many options and programs that may be beneficial.

Here's a link to a blog I wrote on how to find rent-to-own properties. One thing to keep in mind, which my blog points out, is that relatively few properties will be listed that way (lease-option, lease-purchase, rent-to-own, etc.). Instead, often you have to find likely properties and make an offer on them.


Hope that helps.

Good morning Jessica,

Feel free to contact our office to see how we can help you find a home and guide you down the path to home ownership. While it can be difficult to find rent to own or lease with option to purchase properties, we work with a number of programs that help us identify opportunities and present them to potential buyers.

Hi Jessica, to follow up from yesterday, there are lease purchase and rent w/option homes listed for sale on our local MLS. Some of these homes have been listed since 2012, one was listed in 2011 and the balance in 2013 that range in price from $45,900 to $995,000. Some have actual Lancaster zip codes others are in Ephrata, Quarryville, Elizabethtown and Columbia. I would be happy to work with you to give you first hand information to address your needs. Generally in a 'rent w/option' the seller sets the requirements via an option agreement and requires a down payment. A tenant-buyer pays a monthly rent with the option to buy at the end of the lease. Price is determined upfront, and usually a portion of the monthly payment can be applied to the purchase. I'm here to give you the answers you need when you need them. Feel free to reach out to anytime at the contact information on my profile. Enjoy your day! -Barbara Ries, REALTOR®
