Some do and some don't. You need to find a good buyer's agent in your area, and explain what you are looking for. If the person is willing to do the digging to find these kinds of properties for you, then yes. Many won't take that time.

Many realtors can assist with finding a rental property, however our tools limit the number of rental listings that are available to us. We often partner with a local property management company to bridge that gap.

Many Realtor will help with finding rental properties. The best advice I could give you would be let the agent know what you are looking for and let them do the search. Many homes are listed in the MLS service and it give us the most updated information.

An experienced Realtor can assist with most real estate transactions. While these are not always easy
to find, if you come across an opportunity such as this, your agent can work with you on this land

Some do but many many won't. It's a lot of work and many realtors won't do that work.

Although they can be a bit compicated, I have done them before, both representing the tenant and owner, so the answer is, yes we can help find rent to own properties.

If you would like help in the Yardley/Newtown/Langhorne area, I would be happy to speak with you.

Thanks for posing this question.

We research them as any other property. Typically these homes are up in tandem with being for sale as well. The best method is to ask the agent who is selling a home that has been on the market for awhile if the sellers are considering this option. The same holds true for a person who is renting and may want to sell in the furture. In any case, you need an agent to help you.

Hi Debbie, yes, Realtors assist with rent-to-owns also. The Landlord typically pays our commission out of the first month's rent and if/when you buy the house, so our services are for the most part free of charge for you.

Let me know if you would like to talk over the phone. I would need to better understand your motivation, ie, why you are interested in rent-to-own vs renting or buying. Also, we would need to discuss your income, credit, etc.

Best of luck!
