Since rent to own properties may not be listed as such, consider working with an agent of your own. Keep in mind that rent to own can be risky and one could stand to lose a bit of money, therefore do inform yourself well, and consider consulting with an attorney who specializes in real estate beforehand. If you haven't done so yet, visit with any licensed loan officer, see if you can buy outright...... more
My name is Ali and I am Trulia’s Community Manager. I was a bit confused by your question in Trulia Voices, can you please provide a bit more information and I would be happy to try and help you- or find someone else who can.
Send me your contact information and I will give it to our rental department, Gann Property Management. They are the largest rental agency in Lufkin and will be happy to assist you.
It depends on how long you plan to be in the house. If you are fairly certain you will be moving and selling a property in say 5 to 7 years then an adjustable rate mortgage could save you money. You really need to look at the math and see how much you would be saving against the risk of you not moving and rates being considerably higher at that time.
It's one of those situations only you can access. I will tell you that currently I am originating a very small percentage of adjustable rate mortgages as compared to fixed rate mortgages these days. I'm sure as rates creep up over the next year or two that will change somewhat.
Hope this helps.

Hello, Looks like it has been about a month and a half since you posted this question. I just checked out that house and it recently closed. If you are still in the market I would love to help you find a home! There are several new listings added to the market every day.... more
You want to find someone experienced for sure. You'll want to ask them lots of questions but also they should be asking you questions to better understand your goals. In addition to those two, you need to get along with the realtor because you will have a business relationship for several months and ideally for much longer than that.
Would you like a referral for that area?... more
I have worked with USDA loans as an Realtor/ Broker as well as an approved builder for over 15 years. I can walk you through every detail of the process. It is a wonderful program. Please feel free to contact me directly.
You never want to get an opinion about the performance of the foundation from a foundation repair company. You want to get a structural engineer that is not affiliated with any of those companies either. He gets paid the same amount if there is a problem or not. It usually runs about $300 and is not bias. Well worth the investment.
I am not familiar with the Lufkin market to refer you to one, I am sure that another pro here will be able to help.
Good luck.... more
