Kathy Burgreen answered:
Landlords can discriminate against pet owners because of insurance claims. You need to learn that landlords / property owners are required to have insurance and insurance companies write policies that prohibit any claims against animals. There are insurance policies that will accept pets but those policies cost more money. Therefore it's cheaper and easier for landlords not to accept pets.

You need to pay for the pet insurance premiums and show the insurance policy to landlords. Once they see you have pet insurance, any landlord will rent to you.

Contact a realtor to contact the owner or listing agent. They can find out if the owner is willing to sell.

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

Be aware that scams do exist; be mindful that such web sites are third party sites, so the information is fed by various sources, therefore data is not really verified. If you choose not to work with an agent of your own always verify ownership before exchanging any money/personal information--make certain they are who they claim to be. Never wire any money, if it sounds too good to be true, it is. For scam related information see link.

Ann Ryan answered:
In my mind, the most important question to ask is whether you can afford to replace the appliances if they break in the first year. If money is tight, then by all means go ahead and buy the warranty. Otherwise, I think it's best to skip the warranty and just take your chances.

In addition to the fact that you will be asked to pay service call fees, remember that the home warranty companies will try to keep appliances working as long as possible, even if the better answer would be to replace them. So instead of paying $450 once for new disposal and being done with it, you might end up paying $150 in service fees, and still have a problematic disposal.

Le Ann Dunne answered:
It is very uncommon to have properties available to purchase on contract in our market. This is a very fluid market, so homeowners do not have to sell on contract.

Another factor is that most people need the equity out of their property to move to their next property.

Hope this helps.

Cheers! Le Ann
