Desperate times call for desperate measures. We are seeing more and more "rent with option" properties being advertised in today's market.
The best way to find one is to start working with a real estate professional located in your area of interests. It's common for owners to expect a fairly large deposit to protect their investment. Contact an agent today.
Let me know if my team could be of assistance in finding your dream home.
the MLS allows realtors to search for rent-to-own (not the public versions though). Ask around for a recommendation for a local realtor and ask him/her to search the MLS for a) lease-option and b) rentals also makred for sale, an often-overlooked alternative to (a).
Good luck and all the best,
