Felecia, Rent to own has been around for a long time and most of the time it does not work out for the buyer. I would not recommend it. I would recommend that you rent to get your credit squared away then after a year renting time to buy. As a State Certified Residential Real Estate Appraiser and a REMAX Realtor, I know the local market. Feel free to call or email me 904-962-8089 dprice@agentlink.net I would like to help you with your real estate needs.
Thank you,

It is important for buyers to get pre-approved before they began searching for a home or even an agent. However, my advice for any homeowner is to seek out a HUD Approved Housing Counseling Agency and attend a Home buying class (8 hour class). There is a lot of information available on the internet that can help home buyers in the process of purchasing, however, a home buying class literally walks the buyer through the entire process of purchasing a home. These classes are FREE and allow the home buyer to know what to expect during the process, hopefully making the process smoother for any home owner.

Another advantage of attending a home buying class with a HUD Approved Housing Counseling Agency is the class reviews the qualifications for First-Time Home buying programs (NSP, City/County programs, etc...) in that area and if those qualifications are met the buyer will receive a certificate of completion. In my opinion, a good home buying experience begins with knowing your options and attending one of these classes will present those options to you.

Ricky,

When you buy a house there is a title search performed on the house. When you get a mortgage there is the same kind of search done on you!

If you portray yourself as an owner-occupant to the mortgage company but you are really an investor the FBI will hunt you down. They have a special mortgage fraud division in the Jacksonville office on Gate Parkway.

Dont Do it!

Dee - as Pam answered below, there can be quite a lag between the time a home is auctioned on the courthouse steps, and becomes an active listing in the Multiple Listing Service. If you are flexible on your move date, these kinds of properties can be a great deal. You will want to make sure you visually inspect the property before making an offer, and have a home inspector conduct a thorough inspection as part of your purchase agreement. Most foreclosed properties will not have the utilities on to do the inspection, so you will have to make arrangements with the utility provider to turn the power/water on for a day or two so you can fully inspect. This would be your expense; I just did this on a foreclosed ocean front condo at the beach, and the cost was $35. If I can help further, please let me know.

Raj

It sounds as though you are purchasing site unseen. You should secure a Buyer's Agent to represent you Your Buyer's agent can give you a market analysis and advise you as to fair marekt value. If this home is listed , the Buyer's agent's commission is already factored into the list price of the home. The seller has already agreed to the commission to be paid to the listing Broker wihich includes an amt to be paid to the selling Broker.. In Florida Buyer's representation is free for you.

There is a number of newer homes that were built on vacant lots in the area you descrivbe. The area is mixed older homes, mobile homes and now lthe newer homes.

If at all possible, I would recommend you secure the services of a local Buyer's Agent and view the home and area before making your a purchase
