Dan Tabit answered:

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.

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

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 -

Sarah Goulart Nathe answered:
Very common in bank owned properties for the P&S to be signed within 48 hours of accepted offer. The P&S should be written that the deal is still contingent on a satisfactory home inspection. I would consult your buyers agent and/or your buyers attorney to ensure that was done and you are protected. But again, this is the 'norm' in REO/bank properties. ... more

He or she might be on vacation. People usually have someone cover for them. I don't know how people sell houses when they are never reachable.

Heath Coker answered:
This is a lawyer question. Make sure that you do have some contingencies for leaving the agreement that are based on the future home inspection results. Banks do not want to negotiate fixes, but you do not want to be forced to take on more than is reasonable and/or customary.
