I hate to rain on everyone's parade, but most of the people looking for a lease-option are doing so because they have credit challenges or little to no down payment. Chances are that they have also never consulted with a lender. If you are a fellow Realtor who is advising people to get into a lease-option, you should also tell them that 95% of people who do, never wind up purchasing the home, so they lose their entire option deposit. For most of the people with financial challenges, a lease-option is the last thing they should do. Instead they should be working with a mortgage adviser, saving money, and working on bettering their credit. In the long run they will be much better off.

You're in luck. I am a real estate agent that specializes in rent to own or lease/options.

I don't have a long list of properties available for L/O at any given time. But they are all real.

Check out my blog site for what currently available http://realestatemarbles.com/apos/

I get new properties all of the time and I work with buyers to find lease option or rent to own homes in areas they want.

Sellers - I also work with sellers. Why? Because selling using an alternative purchase option like an L/O or AITD is a great way to get buyers fast.

Good Luck,

Hi Moe, lease options are tough to come by right now because most properties on the market are negative in equity, meaning the owner doesn't have any other option than to sell it outright. Regardless of the agent you choose to with, one of your strategies should be to search for home sellers with equity, and offer them the lease option, which may be more attractive than competing against the banks to sell. This will be time consuming, but may open up new properties to you that wouldn't othewise be available.

I have some questions for you. What neighborhoods in Orange County are you interested in living? How much do you want to spend each month? How soon are you looking to move? Are you familiar with how leas options work? And lastly, have you tried qualifying with a lender?
