Victory Property Management answered:
If the foreclosure is listed with a real estate agency, then you need to contact the listing agent. If the property is not listed, then generally speaking, you will not be able to do much at all. Lenders nearly always list their foreclosures with licensed agents. They rarely handle calls from investors/buyers. ... more

Rent to own is really not a good idea, therefore consider fixing whatever is preventing you from purchasing outright. Rent to own can be risky and one could stand to lose a bit of money, it favors the owner; therefore inform yourself well in advance of your search, and consider consulting with an attorney who specializes in real estate before considering the idea and or before signing any agreement. If you haven't done so yet, visit with any licensed loan officer, see if you can buy outright, or simply continue renting until a purchase can be made. ... more

Real estate is always being bought and sold. If you are in a buyers market trying to sell a home, you will more than likely need to sell for less than you think your home is worth. To answer your question directly, yes. The upside to selling a home for less than it might be worth, is that you can probably purchase one for less than it is worth also. ... more

Like Vicki, I'm not sure I understand what you are asking. If you mean adding a recommendation to their profile, anytime is good.

Larry Story answered:

If you are talking about Heyworth Ct here in Jamestown, NC then no. You are close to Ragsdale High School but it is not really a walking distance to much else.

If you are looking for a home with a good Walkscore then we need to direct your search to a bit more into town. If you are not already working with an agent feel free to contact me through my profile here on Trulia or through one of my other websites listed below.

Hope this helps,

Lease to own contracts are possible on single family homes as well as condos and townhomes.
The longest term possible time frame can be as short or as long as the buyer and seller agree. A lease purchase contract should be completed by an attorney, not a real estate agent. The agent can certainly help you find a property, but once you are serious about a specific property, you need to see an attorney. A lease/purchase is a unique contract and all parties have to be protected. The attorneys I've used in the past will recommend a 1) Property Lease, 2) Option Agreement and then 3) an Offer to Purchase. These 3 steps, instead of a lease/purchase agreement, protect the seller a little more.
One thing you need to check with your loan officer about is, will the 3 step lease/option/contract do as much for you as a Lease Purchase Agreement. If I'm not mistaken, a Lease/Purchase can give you an advantage with your lender when you decide to complete the purchase. I believe the Lease/Purchase actually puts you into an owner's position with the lender, so when you decide to complete the agreement, you can actually refinance. Check with your lender.
