I am an agent in your area (Yardley, PA) and do work with both investors and homeowners who are trying to find creative financing (rent to own, assumptions, owner financing, etc).
If you are still looking, feel free to contact me for more info! I'm sorry that I am just seeing your post now.
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.
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!
