Help the community by answering this question:


Are you still in the market for a small farm? What price range do you expect to be in? Have you been in contact with a lender to get pre-qualified for a loan, which will let you know what you can borrow of if you have any credit issues to take care of. I can help you with these items, if you wish. Carolyn Walkingstick, United Country Farm & Home Realty, Inc. cwfarmhome@aol.com or phone 918-696-6295.

Your best bet is to rent until you can qualify to buy. Rent to own, lease purchase or rent to buy are all good deals for a seller but rarely workout for a buyer.

This is not a good choice for you as a buyer. Run from anyone who suggests that you rent to own. Buy when you qualify for a mortage do not get into a rent to own contract if you are unqualified.

The rent to own contracts are a sellers tool to get people into houses. The process is that you will sign a contract saying that you will buy the home someday in the future 12 months-18months. You will put down a sizable Non-refundable option deposit which will be applied as a downpayment when you buy when and if you buy on time. Normally an 8%-10% deposit. At the end of the contract if you don't buy the house for the original terms you will lose your deposit. Now you get to start all over again after losing $5,000 to $10,000 it's better to rent until you are ready..

Best of Luck,
