People who are offering the "rent to own" option, most of the time either:
1. Owe more on the home that it is worth.
2. Or the property is hard to finance.
So you if you can make sure that the purchase price is reasonable, and that the property can be financed. You can do it.
Now good luck finding something like this.
Feel free to call me and talk about it 714-968-2500
I am guessing that the last poster Sheryl Arndt would be able to a good job for you as well. She seems like she might be good.
