I have a home owner that would consider a long term lease depending on the circumstances. What type of home are you looking for and how much rent are you comfortable paying? You might give me an email.
In this market there are many home owners who would consider renting a home. The prime candidate would be a home that has been on the market for a while and is not occupied. What the owner would be looking for would be some income to defray costs while waiting out the market.
