Hi Stacy, I would avoid doing rent to own at all costs. There is no guarantee that the owner will sell to you and there are too many pitfalls that don’t work in your favor. If you want give me a call at 561-703-6116 and I might be able to set you up with a loan specialist that can take in to account your type of income, lending has freed back up since the downturn around 2010. - David Fleishman ... more

If you would like I may be able to help see what you would be pre approved for ?

We have programs that you can qualify for with as low as a 580 credit score. I can lend nationwide.

Hi Craynor52,

Considering that prices in Florida have been climbing pretty steady year to year which means rents will follow. Also considering interest rates on loans are still low. I would suggest you buy.

Good Luck

My recommendation is to Buy and after 3 years, sell if you need to. After 3 years, you will be paying more for rent and they constantly go up yearly. Mortgage is steady and the housing market is going up. In three years, you may make a little profit.
You can call me and get pre-approved for a mortgage if you like.

answered:
The only $0 down payment programs out there are VA (if you are an eligible Veteran) and USDA (if your household income doesn't exceed certain limits AND the home is located in an eligible area).

Spring Hill is NOT an eligible town for USDA, but if you search a little north or a little east there are eligible area.

With respect to qualifying for a mortgage, we can use your social security income and any pension you earn to qualify you. That income, combined with your debts, will tell us how much of a loan you could qualify for. Feel free to contact me if you'd like help getting pre-approved
