Rent to own is always a tricky situation. Even a lease option can sometimes get a little hairy. If you are able to buy and want to buy, then it would be best to go ahead and buy out right rather than being tied up in a lease agreement. However, there are homes on the market that you can rent with the option to buy.

Ms. Catherine,

Renting with an option to buy is usually a tricky situation. There are companys out there that will rent a house to you with the option to buy. The problem is you never own the home until they are ready to turn it over to you. It can take months or years or in most cases (Ive seen) it never happens. Contact me and lets discuss other options in addition to renting to own.
