Depends on the area and what the trend in your area is. It also depends on the market you are trying to reach. First time buyers in the lower to mid income level buying a starter home...I'd say it makes little difference. If you are marketing toward buyers buying to upgrade from their starter home then granite might be in order. However, granite is not the "hot" item in kitchens today for this market group. Solid surface and even concrete is better in this market. If you are in the high end market ,find something other than granite. In starter homes you can find some very attractive laminate tops for half the cost of granite. Look at what is in comps, go to open houses and don't be shy about asking other agents besides the one you are listing with. Often times the see $$$ signs and think granite will make them more money and then talk you into having it installed only to find out it did nothing to make you additional profit. Your out the cost but you agent has lost nothing. I offer this advice as one who has bought and sold a lot of personal homes and is a retired RE Broker ... more

I have to say Tony is probably correct... your best bet is to consult with a local attorney who specializes in real estate law. Many times a simple consultation doesn't cost anything. Your REALTOR should have contacts and be able to do this for you. ... more

Dan Tabit answered:
Chuck,
Rent to owns are rare, and even more rarely are they a good deal for the renter/buyer. You are just a tenant until you are able to qualify and complete the mortgage. Landlord/sellers love these because they collect up front non-refundable deposits and over market rent and rarely ever see them complete the sale.
A better option is to solve whatever issues are preventing you from buying now. Save your down payment, fix your credit and make a real purchase from a lot more choices when you are really ready.
If you want to pursue this however, contact agents in the markets you are considering. In my market there are usually only one or two at any given time.
