At this time, unfortunately, we currently do not have listings for rent to own homes. You may try your luck though and search our website using the Keyword section of the search filter which can be found in the All Filters button. However, these listings are extremely rare.

Please follow these steps to begin your home search:

1. Click the "RENT/BUY' tab at the top of our homepage.
2. Enter your desired city and state in the search bar and hit Enter.
3. Click 'Max Price' to select what your highest price would be to pay for a home. Click 'Min Price' to set the lowest price you would pay.
4. Click 'More Filters'.
5. Select your preferred property type, square footage, etc.
6. Click the red 'Apply' button.

This will begin to pull up listings that are more tailored to what you are looking for.

If you are interested in a listing, click on the "Contact the agent" button to get in touch with a real estate professional in your area. You can also take advantage of our vast network of agents here:

We hope your experience with Trulia is memorable and thank you for using Trulia for all your real estate needs.

he Home Affordable Refinance Program, also known as HARP, is a federal program of the United States, set up by the Federal Housing Finance Agency in March 2009 to help underwater and near-underwater homeowners refinance their mortgages. Join the 900,000+ people who have benefited from the Home Affordable Refinance Program!

The HARP program is for borrowers who are up to date on their mortgage but cannot refinance due the value of their home having gone down. BUT, it is only eligible for CONVENTIONAL loans backed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, not FHA loans.

FHA does offer a program just as good called the streamline refinance which generally allows a borrower to refinance without needing a new appraisal or any income verification. However, they require that you be up to date in your payments to qualify.

So not sure that would be an option for you though.

You might be best advised to seek out a HUD-approved housing counselor who specializes in foreclosure prevention. Check out for a listing

I wouldn't count on it. It's been more than thirty years, and there's really no reason for those files to be kept this long.

Not exactly sure what your looking for? There are other communities in the Houston area with "Woodlands", but everyone here is assuming you mean The Woodlands north of Houston.

This is a link to homes there under $1,000,000. Let me know if I can create a more specific search for you and your family. The market is tight there as the new ExxonMobile campus is going in south of this community plus general improvement in the economy.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Hello Jeff,

I see you posted this question in early May and don't see any answers. There is no information or link to the property you are referring to. If you are still checking on this information, let me know and I will see what I can find out.

The Heights area of Houston is closer to downtown and a bit of a historic area with a certain vintage style. Many of the original bungalow were built in the 1920s-1940s.

Those older homes are typically sold at lot value, which could easily be in the $100,000-$300,000 range. New construction can range from $350,000 to over a million. Smaller lots typically, some with alley access to rear garages. Mature trees. A very popular area of town.

Let us know if you would like more information. I have assisted 4 buyers purchasing in this area over the last 24 months. Most were also relocating into Houston from other parts of the country (and one came in from overseas!)
