If you lived in the house and paid the rent, why would you get it back? If there is a security deposit, that would be the only thing you might be entitled to from what I can tell. ... more

I would suggest talking to a mortgage lender to see where you need to start building your credit. I have heard lenders tell clients to open 3 credit card accounts, putting on small purchases on them such as candy bars, bottle of water and pay off the balances every month on time. Let me know if you need a lender referral.

When doing a lease purchase it is very important to pay attention to the following:
1.) make sure you know your credit score. Don't just pull it yourself, have a mortgage broker pull the credit and ask them if they think you would qualify for a regular mortgage or if you need a lease purchase program. If your score is down largely in part because of judgements owed then you should be aware most banks would require you to pay the judgements off and wait (usually 12 months) before they would extend a loan to you.
2.) You should be aware of the sellers terms. Does their timeframe match yours. If you find you need 2 years to do a lease purchase let the seller know up front. Our experience tells us that if a mortgage lender tells you that you need in excess of 1 year for a lease purchase, it is usually to early to do a lease purchase.
3.) Be aware of the penalties. Don't just get into it, know the fine print. Some sellers will take large non refundable deposits. If you don't qualify and you get into a lease purchase, serious problems could occur, you could end up without a home and without yoru deposit! Check out our website for even more details to be aware of. has a ton of resources on this topic to be aware of!
We aren't trying to discurage lease purchases just to make sure you choose the right one!

There is a nationwide house price prediction out. No one will be able to tell until next january how good it is.

Does it help you to make a decision? Should it?
I can only say it is a piece to add to the puzzle. It is a hard time in history to know what to do about buying or selling a house.

Hi Rob.
I'm assuming that you are in Midlothian, Texas. If so, the market is great for you. Mainly for the reasons that John Sommese mentioned but also because Texas doesn't have a down market. Real estate is very local. Sometimes as local as a subdivision. That's why you'll need a great REALTOR in the area that you want to purchase. They know what's going on with the individual markets. Also, ask them to sign an agreement to represent you. Most of those agreements obligate them to work in your best interest rather than their own or for the seller. With low interest rates and a steady market place, Texas real estate is a great investment. I wish you the best! ... more
