Well Chris...this must be your LUCKY day! I was thinking of the PERFECT house for you in Bryant that is a sweet deal to be had but since you said "Little Rock" I didn't pursue it, but I understand from my associate agent in Bryant that you've communicated with him on his listing on Holly Lynn already. I told Jerry to "Make it Happen". All the owner needs to do is confirm with his bank that he can buy his other house by renting to you and you're good to go. It's a perfect house and worth a lot more than the ask price and they can certainly do a deal with you on a future purchase and lock in the current price for the future. You can't go wrong on this deal with Jerry. Good luck !!
PS: On our Website below, you can see a bunch of pictures of this house under the Featured Listings and if you click the Camcorder on our home page, you'll come to the Video Tour Page and we have a Video Walk Through on this home as'll feel like you just walked though it.

Chris, that's a tough one. I'm assuming that purchasing is out of the question. You need to be aware that any "Rent to Own" is not going to be to the advantage of the renter and designed to just get more money on a rental. Personally I'd stay way away from those. As for Owner Financing...that's pretty rare as well in that a seller considers if a bank will not loan you money...why should he? If he'll be paying an additional arm and leg on an interest rate which isn't worth it.
I checked our MLS for all homes for sale and there are 52 homes that potentially match your need, but none of them state they will rent or rent to own. I have one for $850 per month, but I don't think you'd define is as "really nice" as your wanting. A Really Nice is going to "start" at about $1,200 per month.
My recommendation considering your time crunch is to call or email Sally Goss at Goss Management. They are a rental management company and run a very good operation. Sally's number is 501-225-7968 and email is She handles over 200 rentals and knows the market very well. If I can be of any help, just call me at 501-960-8601 or email at Good luck and I hope you find something soon!!
