The rental prices in Winfield are from 1500 and up depending on what you are looking for. Many sellers are renting their homes because they owe more than what they can sell them for. At this time if you want to purchase a home you should talk to a loan officer and see how long it would take you to be pre-approved for a loan. Follow their advice and when you are ready there will be more homes on the market to pick from. For now just find a nice place to rent and concentrate on what you end goal will be, a new home. I would be happy to help you with this process. Good Luck!
