Nice job Roy Figueroa!

Thank you for being a creative/open minded seller and for Susan for thinking about the Lease-to-Own possibility.

If Roy's house doesn't happen to be what your looking for, go onto Craigslist, Search under "houses for rent", & email each "For Rent By Owner", and simply ask them if they would sell at the end of the lease. Keep it short and sweet. Throw out the "Not really", or "No's". What we're looking for are the "Absolutely", or "Definitely" or "We would love to sell". Those are the people that are truly motivated! Many of those people are Renting specifically because they COULD NOT sell and would be really interested in doing something like a Lease Option.....they just hadn't thought about doing it.

And here's the added benefit......No Realtors! So you can get a better deal from the sellers and tell them that they won't have to pay any commissions or fees when it comes time for closing! (Big, Big, Selling point for sellers these days) Realtors tend to mess up Lease-to-Own deals because they want to know when THEY are going to get paid. No Realtor = No Problem.

Hope this helps you out a little. If you have any questions about finding or putting a deal together, feel free to shoot me an email anytime.

The inside has been recently remodeled and is in great shape. It is in a nice, quiet neighborhood on the outskirts of Show Low - 15 minutes drive from Snowflake. Our current mortgage is aprx. $800 per month.
