Look for local Taos brokers who have experience with lease options (they must know what they are doing when it comes to this type of transactions!). They should be able to even find some in the local MLS, but if not, they should be willing to approach landlords and/or sellers with reasonable proposals. However, there needs to be someone and some way to pay the broker, because they simply can not offer their expertise for free, of course. You may need to pay a consulting fee if there are not MLS homes offering lease options (and there may be few if any in such a small market). Sellers might also be able to contribute to make it all happen. Keep in mind that most sellers, especially if they are represented by a broker in the MLS will require an option fee of anywhere from $2K-$5K, depending on the property value, etc. Lease options have lots of potential terms, but there are some pretty standard terms that are fair to both sides... fair meaning, reasonable risk and compensation/benefit to both sides. I am happy to share those with you if you email me directly. I wish you the best of luck, lease options can be excellent contracts, but do be very careful, they can also be used to exploit the heck out of inexperienced or desperate people!
