I would buy a property instead of going in a lease with option to buy, however if your credit is poor your best option would be to move forward with a lease with option to buy, and lock a good purchase price at the end of the lease. Please contact me directly and I will explain further.

It looks like Rebecca has some good ideas to get you a beautiful holiday home. I would definitely pick someone with good lender connections. Those from out of state and purchasing a home stay at Scottsdale Park Suites. They rent furnished units by the month in central Scottsdale and are flexible with dates so you can move out as soon as you close. Good luck!... more
Short sales are always a challenge and the one thing that is certain about all of them is that Change is a consistent factor. They are always changing staff, rules, valuations and more. Patience is the rule of thumb. Not sure about the Obama thing.
From my website (http://www.jameswehner.com) you can accomplish this. On the homepage, click on the link to view the free live data from our MLS database. From there it will open a new window where you will be able to enter the subdivision name(s). It will provide you with the available listings in the selected community. You can then select the MAP tab from the upper right hand corner and zoom into to view the complex.
If you desire, you can even select satellite view to view an aerial image of the community.
I hope this helps. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.... more
Scott did you watch the presantation on the website (www.hoamovie.com). I'd love to discuss how this could be marketed with a Real Estate Professional. Take a peak and let me know what you think.... more
I have to agree with Laura, staying out of a Jumbo Loan is a very good thing. With 20% down you can stay way from PMI also.
There are loans out there for you if you decide to put 10% down.
the choice is yours. Shop around.
