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.

For future reference, you can feel free to contact us about this type of inquiry through our contact form here:

Thank you for using Trulia!

It could, but not always. It is best to check with a realtor and make them look at the comparables of the houses that are selling in your area.

Hi Tulillo1961,

Homes listed on typically have a very low starting bid. With that said, they have a "secret" reserve amount that they will not accept anything under that amount.

I suggest that you ask your agent what they think about the pricing of the property. Have them prepare a CMA, so you can determine what the value of the homes in the neighborhood are selling for.

Your agent should be able to offer you good advice about where the reserve might be for the property.

Good Luck with your purchase!

Its best to find a home with "Islamic financing" in an "Islamic" Country. However, we can certainly help you find packing and moving supplies.

I think that mortgage lending is an important aspect of the economy. It allows almost anyone to have a home of their own. The problem occurs when people take on mortgages that they can't afford. That's just a general problem these days.

It depends on the amount of monthly debt you have and will incur with the mortgage. A mortgage broker will be able to run the umbers for you.

Unfortunately this happens often. If you aren't making payments the bank will foreclose. As Rodney said...they are not under obligation to approve a short sale.

I would hate for you to count on any answer from a real estate agent to a question like this. Banks make their own decisions and they are not always consistent.

However, there is a much better source of advice for someone in your predicament. Check out the link below and find a HUD-approved counseling service in your area. These folks will know a lot more about the best ways to handle your particular situation in your geographic area. And the service will be absolutely free. Whatever you do don't pay for this kind of service unless you reach the point where you need help from a qualified real estate lawyer.

Good Luck!

With a short sale, the seller's lender will have to take less than the fullamoutn owed to them on the mortgage. Most lender's will only approve a short sales where there is a documented hardship of the seller. Both the seller and the property have to be approved into the short sale program.

All of that just takes time. Most all lenders are overwhelmed with short sale requests to process.

Katarina answered:
Your debt-to-income ratio along with other factors, including your credit scores, and if you are a first time home buyer, all influence the type of loan and how much of a loan you can acquire when purchasing a home. It is recommended that you speak with a reputable lender. You could also find a reputable local realtor who can put you in touch with a trusted lender. They can also assist you in your search for a home and answer any questions you may have.

I hope this helps!

Jeff Harper answered:
That sounds like a difficult situation. Is the transaction closed yet? If so, congrats! If not, then perhaps you should go higher on the chain of command at the attorney's office. The person who should be helping you get the contract to closing is not doing his or her job. I have been in a similar situation and eventually was forced to speak with the person's boss about the lack of service. Your buyer will most likely not get any compensation for waiting, although they probably deserve it! ... more
