This is a question you need to have your agent ask on your behalf. Find an agent to represent you in this potential purchase or the next one. If you need a referral for an agent in your area please let me know as I can get you in touch with one.

Hope this helps.

I would go after the agents that get the listings.
They are typically the ones that arrange for the services.
Sometimes their is also a field asset manager that arranges for services.

Call the real estate offices.... asks who is their REO listing specialist and start with them.

You can also search for Field Asset Services in your area...and contact those people.

Be aware we want to pay virtually nothing.....want you to do a lot,...make sure you have insurance...can wait to get paid 1-2-3-6months and sometimes not at all. It's not an easy business.

I personally don't like this idea. In my experience few people end up buying. This presents a problem as your contract normally obligates you to buy and puts your down payment at risk if you don't. If you want to rent --then do it, RENT. If you want to buy, then BUY, but don't mix the two. We've recently taken steps in Texas to prohibit these types of transactions.

There's a reason for the law and that is that there were too many bad guys out there taking people's money in a lot of different ways. As a person wanting to rent you put yourself at some risk agreeing to these transactions. ... more
