Good evening Angie,
I will be more than happy to help you through the buying/renting process. Let me know the day and time that will better fit your schedule, so we can get you pre-qualified and inform you of the great programs for first-time-home-buyers. Once we know your price range, we can start looking for your desired location. After you decide on the proper location, we will locate a house that meets your criteria (bedrooms, baths, stories, fireplace, pool, etc.). Until you move in to your new home.

Hi Angie,
It's always best to buy and own your own home. When you rent, you are helping someone pay off their own home! There are a lot of other things to consider before making your final decision.
I would be happy to discuss with you and possibly help you shop for your first home!

Rent or Buy?

Lots to consider.

Do you have cash reserves should the hot water heater break?
Yes? Buy
No? Rent and let the landlord handle it

Do you have the credit and income to purchase?
Yes? Buy
No? Rent

And the list goes on.

I can talk to you about what you can afford and what you qualify for based on your credit and income....

I will let the realtors expand on the rent/buy conversation.

And remember to include family and friends in your discussions about the benefits of home ownership.

You are desperate!
Your Credit or Finances, or both, will not allow you to go the conventional route:
You need the Seller to help you out!

The Seller will know it, and you are going to pay dearly for this service:
There aren't too many altruistic Sellers out there.

There is no FORM printed by anyone; there are just too many variables.
The terms that can be written into a Lease/Option can be dangerous to you:
How long is the Option period?
How much money are you putting in to the Option?
What happens if you are not able to execute the Option?
How do you know what your financial situation will be 2-5 years from now?
How much is the rent in the meantime?
Who will be responsible for maintenance and repair in the meantime?
What will be the Market Value of the home in 2-5 years?
What will be the Selling price 2-5 years from now?

This is the Ultimate Caveat Emptor!

Good luck and May God bless
