Most Real Estate website show homes that are listed. This means that the seller has hired a real estate agent to list their home in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).

Generally, you should be eligible for a mortgage 2 years after a short sale. You'll want to check with a lender for the specifics and requirements. Next, if you want to buy the house you are renting - the owner will have to A. "want" to sell it, and B. "be able" to sell it. If there is a sizable loan outstanding on the property, the owner may be renting it out because he/she can't sell it for enough to satisfy the remaining balance.
Regardless of if you convince the owner to sell you the property you are renting, you'd still have to qualify for and obtain the financing (unless the owner will finance you) to ultimately pay for it. Hope that helps!... more

The difference between those two premiums is probably very little per year. I would opt for the higher amount, just to be safe. The best way to compare insurance costs is to ask each to tell you what they would charge for the same coverage....for instance ask AAA what they would charge you for $205,000. Also, don't forget that the insurance company who gives you your auto policy will offer a discount for an additional policy. So ask about those discounts too.
