You are probably getting the idea by now they all have possibilities. Perhaps the best way to look at it is, what are the essentials you want in a house. Break down your must have and your wish list. Then look for that house. If you focus on one type of sale you might miss the right house. Short Sales are anything but short and have no guarantee of closing. If you must be in a home by a certain deadline don't do a short sale. Bank owned properties can be a deal, but budget for repairs. Most banks will not do repairs. Rent to own, or lease to own or lease options have a hefty price on the front end to pay for the option. If you do not buy, you have paid a lot more than a regular rent would have been.
Interview some full time professional real estate agents to help you with your search and through the process. This way you will have someone looking out for you and keeping you abreast of all your options.

Answer is ____________. ? It all depends. Short sales are iffy - take longer and don't know if they will close -but sometimes owners are still in them - so they are not in as bad shape except for when the owners leave - Foreclosures- have probably been vacant for a long time- but easier to close - so usually some things are missing - appliances - lighting (a/c units - as they may be stolen)
RENT to own- why? LEASE TO OWN?
I think the best property to get is the one you want at the best price.

Although there are some owner financing properties out there, the buyer usually isn't getting a good deal. As far as a short sale or foreclosure it depends on a number of things. If you need to move real soon a short sale is likely not a good option. Also, many foreclosures may need some repairs. I would suggest that you find an agent who understands what you are looking for and who can help by representing you in a transaction. Good luck on your search. Feel free to contact me if I can help.
