First congrats on trying to make the transition from renter to owner. As the previous response stated, most sellers do not list as "rent to own" because there are too many variables to ask them to "lock their property in" to a person who may or may not buyer and who have NO history at all with them. If you must rent, then usually an owner or landlord woukd be more than happy to discuss a llease-purchase aftet about 6 month current rental payments.i assume you are saying lease-purchase because you are unsure about you current ability to buy. Please visit my blog and look through a few of the posts specifically "buying vs renting" , "1st time home buyers", and a few others to get greater insight on what to expect and how to best navigate this process. http://www.dirktherealtor.com.

Hi Marie,
Rent to owns are a little bit harder to find than a straight up purchase. Most homeowners do not list there properties as rent to own. Special paperwork has to be drawn up. Would you qualify as a first time home buyer? You would pay less monthly getting a mortgage
