I agree with the others. Verification of income will likely pose a problem...Your best bet is to find a mortgage broker in your community. A broker has access to a wide variety of loans and will be able to best guide you.

Good luck.

If you are referring to the listings that you see here on, most of them are real. Some of the rentals have been posted by scam artists. The reason that I say that is because the Agents or Brokers on here do not have control of what is posted. Nor does Trulia. When we see something that is too good to be true, it usually is. If you know of a listing on here that is not correct,, it is best to report it to Trulia right away and they will remove the listing. Your best bet is to always work with a Realtor. We are your best defense against scams.

All the best,

Please don't do a lease option in a declining market. The problem with the lease option is you'll have to put up "option money" which could be $3k-10K or more & then you need to agree on a price today, when that price could be less when you go to exercise your option.

Best thing you can do is this: Sign a new lease with a landlord & include an addendum that simply states "Tenant has the 1st right of refusal should landlord wish to sell within my 1 yr lease term". That means when the owner does decide to sell you get 1st dibs & you didn't have to spend any extra $ for those privilege.
