Chelsea,

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.

Graham,
Did you post this question about an apartment in Middleboro MA? With blizzard warnings for our area today on this late day in March I wonder why you would leave warm and sunny AZ?!!
But Middleboro is affordable for what you are looking for-- one bedrooms with heat can be found for $800-$900 per month.

Always work with a local Realtor and be very honest about what you are looking for. Someone who knows the area will be able to guide you to the locations that fit your description and that are within your budget and other criteria. House hunting can be rewarding and a lot of fun for an out of town Buyer with the right real estate professional. ... more

You can go through the registry of deed records, get your own buyer's agent to assist you and/or you can wait until the banks put the house back on the market. I'd also look into and learn the Massachusetts foreclosure process to save you time. ... more

Market values are imposible to predict. That said no matter when you buy or sell your buying power is the same. Meaning in a down market you sell and have to buy you buy another home thats values are depressed, in a strong market you sell and when you buy you are paying more.

The problem now is real estate is over valued in general by 50%

Why you ask, well most of the country is on fixed incomes. We have unrealistic interest rates. for a healty economy is should be 6-7% you do the math present interest rates 3% go to 6% your buying power just got cut in half.

Stay in a home if you like the home, like the community, like the schools, work nearby and feel that it will keep par with the market.

Hi Amy

I have not seen this home but it is in a lovely area of Middleboro and the pictures look very nice. The information does state it needs some TLC so keep that in mind.

I also noticed that this listing is a short sale which means the seller owes more than the market value and cannot financially pay for the house. With this type of listing the seller presents an offer to the bank less than the mortgage balance and asks the bank to accept that amount.

I do alot of work with short sales and have seen some good deals as short sales typically sell for less than market value. I always tell my customers that a short sale is not for everyone because it can take a long time for the bank to make their decision on whether to accept the offer. If you have a specific time line or are selling a house and need to go right into this one it probably would not work for you.

I would be happy to speak with you, as a buyer's agent I can represent your best interest and not the sellers.

I am the REMAX Representative for Middleboro, live in the town and know the community extremely well.

Feel free to call me at 774-766-8439 or email me at barbarabrant@remax.net and I will be happy to discuss this property and any others with you and schedule showings.

Take Care
Barbara

There are several homes in the area that price range, it would depend on how much sweat equity you were looking to put into it. Most in that price range will need some sort of work. You could check for yourself on my web site - www.millbrookrealty.org
