Hi, Patti! There are sporadic rent with an option to buy properties in the area, but they are high risk contracts which typically put all the risk on the buyer. The reason? If you have a home to sell in the upstate, and it is in good condition, there is no great reason to rent with an option to buy. In 2016, it took me an average of nine days to get a home sold in the upstate. If you were a homeowner, and wanted to sell your home, this is a great time to get your home on the market. If something is wrong with your home, making it difficult to sell, or you refuse to sell for actual market value, you're more likely to look for a consumer who is willing to take on a huge risk out of desperation. Please be careful in seeking out rent-to-own properties. You can really get yourself in a lot of trouble. If you are interested in vetting your options, you can contact me through my profile. I'd be happy to steer you in the right direction. ... more

Real estate agents waste both our, the buyers time, and their time uselessly driving around showing houses to clueless people. The great thing up until now is that I could efficiently look…

Also, don't forget, if you are using government backed loans (FHA, VA, USDA) to buy a foreclosed property it must be in liveable condition in order to receive those funds. There cannot be holes in the walls, missing appliances (missing refrigerator is ok), lack of flooring, etc. If you are able to purchase a foreclosed home with cash or with a conventional loan, it won't matter.

Good luck!

In SC, agents are not allowed to let prospective buyers know if there is a sex offender in the area. We can only direct you to the various sites that post information.

First, find out what the offense is, like Vicki said. If it's like he example of an older boy dating a younger girl, you don't have much to worry about. You can find out the offense by going to one of the various sites and clicking on that persons's name or status--it should take you to a page that lets you know what the conviction was.

When it comes to reversing the sale, you can talk to a lawyer, but since the laws are such that Realtors aren't allowed to divulge that information, you may not be able to.

Good luck.

I don't know of any at the moment, but I could set up an MLS email alert in the surrounding Multiple Listing Services to sent you notification the second one comes on the market. You would be one of the first ones to know!

Would concur that it has to take a toll on the market value of the home. Have some similar homes here and at the very least it will limit the amount of potential showings and foot traffic in terms of trying to sell. ... more

Paula Raymond answered:
For people like myself, looking for homes out of state, I find this very misleading, and a waste of my time. Also I am very leary about who I would do business with. Lucky for me haa, I have been researching property in North and South Carolina, I am retired and live on a fixed income. I have a medical disability so I know what I need in a home. I have found to many sites on the web that just want a sale but lacking the personality and patients. It is hard for me to travel every time I have an interest in a home, I would prefer to communicate thru e-mail or phone. As for pictures on the web, well that needs a little help, I get so frustated when I see a home I may follow thru with more details, speaking with a rep. But it is the lack of pictures that I move on to the next listing. ( Pictures speak a thousand words!). ... more
