This simply means the owner agreed to sell the home to the tenant for a certain price within a certain time frame. There are a ton of pros and cons when it comes to rent to own but it really depends on the buyer's situation. This is a great question for an experienced realtor in your local area. can help you find a realtor who can evaluate your individual situation and weigh the pros and cons. Hope this helps! ... more

Karen Gray-Plaisted answered:
Interesting this question was posted back in 2010. Marketing a home has changes since then. Now 95%+ of buyers searching for their new home online, staging is essential. It is part of marketing a home. Buyers do not want to see how sellers live, but how they can live in this "new" house they are seeking.

Generally you can expect to see about 3/4 to 3% of the listing price of a house. They main living areas should be staged and generally the master is the most important bedroom to stage. So to include all the rooms in a vacant house is not always necessary. It depends on the size of the house, and the market it is in.

Sally Grenier answered:
Neither. Some buyers don't care for gas, some don't care for electric. One isn't going to bring in a higher value than the other. An appraiser isn't going to give a gas range any extra value, or subtract for an electric one. I wouldn't pay much attention to that. I'd focus more on the overall condition of the home, age of appliances and major systems like heating, electric, plumbing, roof, windows, etc. Make sure your home is priced at "fair market value". A good local Realtor would be happy to give you a complete market analysis. ... more

Yes, that is a bad idea. Financing a car increases your debt load and - depending on your income - could cause your loan to be denied.

Sally Grenier answered:
Because this website is terrible! Keep in mind, this is just a marketing site that pulls listings from the different MLSs. Since it was bought by Zillow, this site has been a mess and full of bugs. Plus it takes days for new listings in the MLS to show up here. By the time a home appears here, it's usually under contract.

If you're serious about buying, you really should be working with a Realtor. I can give you direct access to the MLS so you can see listings the minute they are listed.

Sally Grenier answered:
Builder's sales reps are not REALTORS, nor even licensed real estate agents. They owe zero fiduciary duty to you, the buyer. They work for the seller (builder). Here in Erie there are sales reps blatantly LYING to buyers about oil and gas fracking operations going on.

By all means, DO have a REALTOR working for you. It doesn't cost you anything. Their commission is already built into the builder's marketing budget. You won't get any sort of discount on the home by not using an agent.

Good luck!

Kyle Foster, Real Estate Pro in Englewood, CO
Thu Oct 15, 2015
Kyle Foster answered:

I hope you decided to rent for 2 reasons. One, so you get to know the area and where you'd like to be long term. Two, because the market was insane and it has now cooled down dramatically. Interest rates are still extremely low and the number of active buyers has decreased dramatically. This has resulted in most homes sitting on the market for over a week instead of 1 day. This means it is now much easier to buy in the Denver Metro area, and buyers will continue to gain leverage against the sellers moving into the winter.

Wish you the best!

Most likely any of the foreign listed ads are scams, not always, but it's a good bet. I'd be wary of anything asking for personal info.

Alice, you have most likely SOLD your Littleton home, by now, since this question was asked in 2010.
The market has changed dramatically since 2010. Today, April 30th of 2015 we are in a Seller's Market. There is a shortage in our current inventory and buyer demand is at an all time high! In today's market, upgrades are usually unnecessary to sell. However, if you'd like to get the most $$$ for your home, some upgrades may help you. These upgrades need to purposeful and appeal to a wide range of buyers. As far as a credit goes, I would not suggest a credit for anything in this market. Just lower the price and buyers will be all over it! ... more
