We live off the Crighton Rd exit in Conroe and really love the area. If you would like to know more post a response and we can get in touch. Erica... more
Hello again Suzan, I would like to comment on Bruce's answer.
He is very correct that renting or buying are completely different transactions and most people benefit from doing one or the other. You certainly would be cheated if someone wanted a down payment without being willing to deed the house to you. I think all of those scams have been made illegal.
The times where it is possible are when an owner can rent you a home and agree to give you some portion of the rental expense toward your future purchase. Usually, those are individual owners who own the property free and clear. In some instances, a builder that is solid and has no encumberances on home is able to do the same.
Again, I encourage you to get representation. It costs you nothing - but - the value is priceless!... more
