I personally don't like this idea. In my experience few people end up buying. This presents a problem as your contract normally obligates you to buy and puts your down payment at risk if you don't. If you want to rent --then do it, RENT. If you want to buy, then BUY, but don't mix the two. We've recently taken steps in Texas to prohibit these types of transactions. There are still people advertising such schemes and think they have a way around it, but the intent and content of the law is clear-NO RENT TO OWN. There's a reason for the law and that is that there were too many bad guys out there taking people's money in a lot of different ways. As a person wanting to rent you put yourself at some risk agreeing to these transactions.

I can call the agent and ask. It is right up the road from me. What are you wanting to put down and for how long do you want to lease before you buy?

It is possible, but you won't know unless you ask. Lease purchase can be a tricky thing to navigate so I would definitely consult with a good real estate agent. If you need help finding one then please let me know and I will connect you with a good one in your location. Contact me at daveedwards@kw.com if want further help. Thanks.
