At this time, unfortunately, we currently do not have listings for rent to own homes. You may try your luck though and search our website using the Keyword section of the search filter which can be found in the All Filters button. However, these listings are extremely rare.

Thank you for using Trulia!

Appraisals are done for a variety of different reasons and ordered by many different entities. It could be an appraisal that was done for a refinance loan, a divorce attorney may have ordered it to determine what the home is worth in a divorce settlement, an estate settlement, or the home owner may have ordered an independent appraisal for an opinion of value. So if you have interest in the property, you should have your Realtor do a comparable market analysis (CMA) to determine what comparable homes have sold for recently in the same area. This will give you a more independent idea of what the home should sell for. Then it is ultimately up to you as to what to pay for it and what you are capable and comfortable with.

Hi Zippy. As I always teach my students....the house is worth to you, what it is worth to you. We all have different strategies when it comes to investing in real estate. Cash flow, long term hold, short term hold, etc. By engaging a title company in the transaction you should receive a free and clear title at closing. Always use "OPM"...Other People's Money when able. If you qualify for financing, use it. You can leverage your available cash for multiple deals. Hope this helps....
