Lease-options are pretty hard to find, Cathy--but if you check my website (RealWorldPropertiesInc.com) I try to post any there I come across, and if I know your criteria (size, location and price) I can keep my ayes and ears open. I have had some success matching up investors wishing to purchase short sales who then lease-option them back to an end buyer such as yourself.
You can also sign up for a free Listingbook account and search for homes there--it makes communication easy for both me and you, because I can flag properties that may have potential.
Good luck--contact me if you have any questions!... more
