A rent to own may work well for you. It really depends on where your credit score is, your income source, and what you are trying to accomplish short and long term.
I have a couple homes available rent to own, or I can connect you with others who do. To work on your credit for the future purchase, contact Matt Helpling at Rapid Mortgage. http://www.trulia.com/voices/profile/Real_Estate_Pro-Ohio-88 Tell him I said "Hi"
