I am looking to find a home but will need a lease-purchase option. Can any realtors in the Collingswood area help? Thank you!

Dear Alissa,

Very glad you brought your question to Trulia - you've turned to a good place to get some answers!

I'm curious on why you are looking for a Lease/Purchase option? Often times folks want to do a lease/purchase because they would like more time to "save" for a down-payment, or may have some credit issues that need to be "cleaned up" before they can apply for a loan, or perhaps you want to secure a "sale price" on a home because you think prices may go up. There may be many reasons - but they might not be in your best interest. Are you familiar with how lease/purchase options work? Since I live and work in Collingswood, I'd be more than happy to sit down and explain it to you and learn a bit more about your situation.

I like helping folks make the right move! Whether it's renting, buying, or a lease/purchase.

Kind Regards,

I have a townhouse listed in Haddon Twp that may be able to do a lease purchase. It is for sale, but the owner may be willing to take this route. It has 3BR, new windows, new kitchen, central air and a garage. The asking price is $128,900. Please call me in the morning to talk about it. (856-795-7890)

Hi Alissa,

There are a couple rental listings in Collingswood that are (or have been) on the market for sale. These are generally the homes you want to target. Other options would be to look for vacant homes that have been on the market for an extended period of time.

The best place to start would be to share your requirements - bedrooms, bath(s), lease price, etc. Happy to help out! Give me a call at 856-616-7131.

Hello Alissa,
Thanks for your question.
I will be happy to send you the properties that are on the market for rent with the purchase option.
Keep in mind that nowadays market is ideal for buyers so if you can buy you will save money unless your credit or circumstances do not allow you to. There is a good amount of homes available, interest rates are at historical lows.
Good luck in your search.
