Rodney that posted below is a smart man! I work with Rodney sometimes, and he has a lot of different options that you may not know about to get you into a purchase situation right away.
Inventory is very low right now. I have buyers that want to buy homes, but we cannot find anything to meet their criteria that is available right now. If a seller wants to sell their house for market value, they will typically just sell it. Lease purchases are risky for everyone, and if one party comes out on top, it is the seller 99 times out of 100.
I would suggest contacting Rodney and finding out where you are and what you need to do to get in a position to purchase directly. If you need assistance in finding something, I would be happy to help.
