Would you please give me some information as to who to contact for a showing? I would like to get something going on this property before someone else jumps at it. Thank you

Jkwituki,

Rent to owns are rare and even more rarely are they a good deal for the renter/buyer. The vast majority of rent to own renter/buyer's never end up buying the house. They are a great deal for the landlord/Seller as they get to collect large up front deposits and over market rent only to do it all over again in the same house. I consider it basically immoral and predatory in most cases.

Resolving credit issues isn't rocket science and a local mortgage lender can and often do assist buyers with this. Many things you can do yourself, others the lender can direct or assist you with.

Most people in this position are far better off renting the least expensive place they can stand to live in and save up some down payment, get on a budget and fix their credit. Once you are qualified, you can select any listed property in your price range and you've fixed the issues that hurt your credit.

Time to sit down with your agent and ask some questions. Marketing is everything.
It is so important to understand what your agent is going to do or has done to expose your house to the market place. I have found accasionally the listing is there and due to some glitch in the system it does come up unless you have specfic information for the software to look for it. (adress, MLS number, parcel no) So talk it over with you agent and see what can be done to make it easy to find. He/she may not be aware the it isn't coming up.
You have hired that person to do this for you. Its what we get paid the "big bucks" for. :)
You shouldn't have to make it happen unless you are trying to market yourself.
