The listing agent may not have updated their listing. Not all are updated by an auto feed from the mls. Ask you agent to update their listing

Can you be more specific as to where in the contract this would be written (I'm assuming under Additional Provisions) and why it needs to be in the contract?

Most lease purchase homes are for only a year. Not many home sare listed as a rent to own. they are listed for sale, the seller has not sold but needs to move and needs to rent the home but wants someone to buy it within a specified amount of time. Most lease purchase buyers qualify through their credit but do not have the savings for down payment and closing costs. if you are not looking to purchase for a whilel a lease purchase may not be for you as most legitaimate lease purchases will ask for a non refundable deposit on the purchase part. The most fraud is found in this type of rentals so using an agent can certainkly help. ... more

Hello Pal,

I have seen FNMA owned properties reduce their prices (because they couldn't sell at original price).
I have also seen FNMA owned properties selling for less than offered.

That said, foreclosures are very hot.
There are a lot of people hunting foreclosures hoping to get a better deal.
That's why there are multiple offer situations and bidding wars on foreclosures.

Hope this helps,

Not much to do in Concord, especially for young children. Big downside is the sewerage treatment plant. Avoid driving home on the highway into Concord at night. It's the worst smell you'll ever experience in your life. ... more

If any person wants to become a buyer instead of a renter, their first step needs to be to contact a local and trusted mortgage broker for a free pre-quailification. If you do not know any mortgage brokers you should ask family and coworkers for referrals, you can email me if you would like the names of a couple of great mortgage brokers, but please do not use online companies. Once you get prequailifies you will know whether you can or can not obtain a mortgage, if you can not, they should be bale to tell you what you have to do to be able to obtain a mortgage. As far as buying in this market there are lots of variables. It depends what city or town you are interested in, even what neighborhood within that city or town and what type of property and what price range you are looking in. While homes needing lots of work continue to free fall, homes in good condition and under $249,900 are remaining steady. The key is to find a property that suits your needs and is priced at or below market value. If you can do that, you should be ok buying right now. There are incredible deals right now as the amount of buyers has decreased as it is winter afterall and buyers always decrease this time of year no matter the economy. No one knows what the spring will bring, eventually interest rates will go up so now you can get them at their lowest point. Foreclosures will continue, the banks have slowed their pace so not to flood the market, they will continue this policy which is causing new foreclosures to be in worse shape than those of even a year ago, as the owners are not paying the upkeep on them as they know it eventually will go to foreclosure. So yes now is teh time if your finances are secure, if you find something that suits your needs and you are getting it at or below market value. ... more

Hi Sheila,

Maybe it's time to start over. A real estate lawyer ought to be able to help you, but even an experienced Realtor should be able to give you good direction. Without knowing all the in's and out's of the issue, I would only suggest that you might withdraw from this contract, get your breath and reenter the contract with a broker on your side. Very few people actually buy something they have decided against. But there are lots of people who wish they hadn't bought a lemon. Buy in haste, repent at leisure.
