In answering your question of rent ot own. Very often in this market sellers are more than happy to do a rent with option to own. I am very familiar with this property, my office is located in this area. If you would like me to call the listing agent and discuss it with them, I am more than happy to do that for you. Just let me know if I can help you.
As the property is both available for rent and for sale, I would think that a rent-to-buy option offer would definitely be well received by the sellers.
They are asking $4,295/month for rent and require first month, last month and one month's security deposit on signing of the lease.
If you would like to see the property or if I can help in any way with the negotiations on this or any other similar unit, please don't hesitate to contact me.
