No, but I get the rent to own question a lot. Many consumers think you need 10 or 20 % to buy, and so think they have to rent to own in order to buy. You need 3.5 percent to buy a house and your credit score should be 620 or higher. If you would like more information, call me.

HUD does not normally do this, but you may find private sellers who may be interested in this type of transaction. If you contact me with a little more information about what you are looking for, I can send you some properties that are offering lease/purchases in Philadlephia.

Best of Luck,

Dear Desiree,
No, HUD owned properties are for sale only, some can be financed, the rest require an all cash offer.
