Dear Marycestrada,
Talk to an Agent who can help to to find suitable properties and who is not afraid to work with the seller and their agent to present a lease to purchase proposal to them. Once you identify a property you will need to
hire a real estate lawyer to draw the documents and explain your rights, including those of possession and default consequences. The property might be encumbered by underlying loans that contain alienation clauses, giving the lender the right to accelerate the loans upon sale.

. Agents are not always involved in the exercise of lease options. if you have retained real estate agent representation, you still need a real estate lawyer. Agents are not lawyers and cannot give legal advice.

Then again, if those are the only Sales in the area, then that is why they would have to use them. I would call the Company that you paid to appraise your home and ask them to go through it with you and to answer all of those questions.
