It is uncommon for me to have rent-to-own listings. I do not advise it, but Craig's List might be your most likely source for rent-to-own listings. Disclaimer: Please watch out for false advertisers and person(s) seeking your personal information before double, triple, and even quadruple verifying that the listing is legitimate and that you are dealing with the rightful owners of the property. ... more

Disclaimer: My company United Country has a strategic partnership with this company.
Credit Guys- I would recommend you visit their website and learn more; maybe even call them to ask questions.
They ARE NOT a debt consolidation company. They help people get ready to buy a home.
Credit Guys. I can give you a specific point of reference if you are interested. I have met and spoken to the founders. They are good people. Hope this helps.

I am not familiar with HMS either. I have used AHS (American Home Shield) and HWA (Home Warranty of America) in the past. I do like the fact that HWA offers a 13 month home warranty (whereas) some of the others offer 12. My experiences have been that they will also allow the referring apply an agent referral fee of $70 back to the client for an additional discount on their purchase. I will have to look into HMS myself. ... more

I have been to check out the new Healthy Community Development in Downtown Jackson.
I love the concept. The development is anchored by the new state of the art indoor fitness center called the LIFT. Homeowners and apartments lessees in the development are offered a free membership to LIFT as part of the incentive package offered to move downtown. You can find out more by visiting their website @
I have been in several of the spec units,and I'll have to say they are really nice!!
I hope this helps!

There are numerous government programs to help families buy a home. Some FHA government owned homes can be purchased for as little as $100 down and Rural Development offers 100% financing. VA also has 100% financing.

I am not aware of any government lease to own programs. Feel free to call if you would like to discuss your options or contact your preferred lender to learn about all available government loan programs.

Some sellers aren't going to rip you off because you need owner financing. Give this guy a call, he does it frequently and he isn't going to take advantage of you or come at you like a loan shark. He is from good people, working class folks, and isn't trying to get rich, just making a living. He's been there and done that himself. Jeff Johnson, 731-445-1700, text or leave a message, he will call you even on the weekend or evenings, too. I don't get a commission, a fee or otherwise, just know some folks he's done right by, he's a stand up guy. This isn't California or Jersey, good southern folk, ya'll come see us now, ya here... ... more

March is a great time everything starts to bloom and buyers are thinking about moving around the end of school if they have children or they want to make the move during their vacation time. But actually there's never a bad time to sell, if you are really wanting to move buyers are always looking, especially people who are being transferred they have to move when the company says. ... more

Happy Holidays! I have two offices one in Northwest Florida and Crestview sounds like that may suit your needs. You are 40 miles inland and high elevation. I spent 17 years there and emerald coast beaches are beautiful, low crime rate and school system is great. I now live in Central Florida on the outskirts in Saint Cloud. Please keep in touch so that I can meet your family needs.

Jeff answered:
That's great your trees worked out.

It's a toss up here on what's worse, houses or stocks. Im from Jackson and have been a little envious of the extremely affordable houses my friends live in compared to here. Here a $600K house is a 4BR 2.5BA house built in the 60s or 70s and carries a $5,500 annual tax bill. There are more and more for sale signs that actually say "Reduced 100,000". Hard to believe. So, the housing crash is bringing things somewhat back to reality here. ... more
