I recommend that you speak with a financial planner or accountant who can review your particular financial situation and determine what the best course of action would be.

Depending on your income, you may want to check out Habitat for Humanity if you are willing to help volunteer ("sweat equity). You would have a nice, brand new, safe home for you and your children, at an affordable rate. Go to their website, or call the local office, to see where and when they are building in your area, and also what the income and credit qualifications are.

As far as rent to own, just be careful. Some people try to not apply the whole amount of what you are paying toward the mortgage, and it ends up being a bad experience and a waste of money.

As a first time homebuyer, you could try FHA. Check your credit on the government's free annual report site.

Make sure you have a good established relationship with a bank/credit union at this point, are paying bills on time, etc. Try for more ideas, I have been using them to help figure out my debt ratio and other factors to prepare me for home buying.

How long have you been in your current home? Do you have any equity built up? I agree with Kelly, the first step is to speak with a loan officer to make sure you will be able to purchase when you sell your current home. Then get your home on the market! You never know how long it will take you to sell your current home. Keep your eyes open for homes that interest you while marketing your home for sale. You sure don't want to have 2 mortgage payments! Please visit my website below for helpful buyer information, and let me know if you need the names & numbers of some great local lenders! Please don't hesitate to call me if you would like an honest evaluation of your current home - I'll be happy to come take a look & give you my honest opinion. Good Luck! ... more

hey do you have any houses that are available for rent?
I know the markets not that great for sellers right now, and im looking for a home for my family.
Sometimes, sellers who had their empty houses on the market for a long time are willing to put it up for rent.
Im not looking to buy right now, so if there is a house up for rent that is 3/2, please let me know. I'd love to go look at it.
