Hi,

Currently, we 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 at "More" button. However, these listings are extremely rare.


Thank you for using Trulia,

You can do it, but will be too tight to open the passenger door on the right side. Also, don't plan on a lawnmower, snowblower, bikes, garbage cans or anything bigger than a rake in there.

The average SUV is a little over 6 feet wide, so subtract 20-12 = 8 feet for opening doors. Now, try to open your door only 2 feet to get out of your vehicle.

Your concern is valid, home price has been going up. Have you talked to a lender? I'm a local realtor and I connect you with local lender(s) that I typically refer my clients to. Feel free to call me.

Homes that back to commercial property, apartments, busy roads, etc. are less desirable and harder to sell. If this home has been on the market longer than average, location is probably the reason.

Susie Kay answered:
It's a very competitive seller's market out there especially in your price point. We have tons of cash buyers at your price point and obviously, because there's no risk of any lender not approving a loan at the last minute, sellers prefer cash buyers.

There are ways to be competitive with an fha loan; however, you have to feel comfortable with it. I just helped my buyer closed on a property with an fha loan. I would suggest that you ask your realtor for advice.

Good luck!

Susie Kay answered:
Realtors are not allowed to practice law or translate what title language means. This question should be addressed to title who has it's own attorneys or your attorney. On the last page of contract for one to four family residential there's a section in which it's written that you can consult an attorney before signing and that realtors are prohibited from giving legal advice.

I would suggest that you contact the title company and ask them to change title to what you want.

If the report is from the Dallas Police Department and you have questions then I would suggest that you call or visit the police department and ask for clarifications.

Susie Kay answered:
That's a very general question as it depends on the home and the people living in the home. I have clients who are comfortable at 73 degrees at home during summer and others at 78. The insulation of the home also matters.

I would suggest that you locate the property that you like first, then ask the seller for the average utility bills.

Karen and Paul Catania answered:
Most cash deals I work with are about 21 days if you plan on going through all the steps and plan on living there. That gives you time to get the disclosures, inspections and repair request done. 21 days goes quick but is more than enough time to for everything. 7 days is what the title company needs to get their side done for quick close but I have heard online that it can only take 3. All of this only works on a vacant home and if a seller is willing to do their part so quick. Cash or loan, most sellers will need at least 30-45 days on their side. ... more
