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.

Hello, The bedroom and bathroom information on your home comes from the Cleveland County Assessor. You can contact them to correct the information on your home.

Dan Tabit answered:
Agents search capability is much greater than what public sites offer, so working with a great agent will be the first step to narrow your choices.
Now with each criteria you add, you will narrow the results tremendously. The good thing about this is that you may find the one or two homes which fit your criteria perfectly. On the other hand, you are limited to what an agent inputs into the system and the accuracy of that input.
I like to start with a very specific search when the specific requests are understood, but then remove filters providing greater results so that my buyer can understand some trade offs they may be willing to make.
Some of the details like the gate in the back yard may be too specific for any search, but it doesn't hurt to ask.

Hi Jwvargas,

The minimums would be an FHA mortgage with a 580 middle score with a 3.5% down payment unless you're eligible for a VA mortgage which doesn't require a down payment.

Check out my recommendations here on Trulia from some of my past clients by clicking the following link.

Please feel free to contact me for more information or help. You can also find info on my FHA Mortgage website by clicking the link below.

Josh Barnett answered:

I agree with Scott on selling your home first as the builder will not pay market for your exsisting home. If the contract locks your exsisting home in with the purchase of the home you have contracted to be built, you could possibly lose both homes if you do not purchase the contracted home being built. Make sure you can trust the builder and check their references prior to hiring them.

Answering the original question, drive the neighborhoods you want to live in and call the builders off of their signs in front of the homes you see yourself living in.

Hope this helps,

Josh Barnett, Realtor

Paul and Greg Rosino answered:
Never act FAST! Get the facts, investigate (like going to the County Assessor page and the other suggestions stated) . Be an educated buyer and you will be a satisfied buyer! All the responses have been excellent. Realtors can help but ultimately the money you spend is yours, the neighborhood you live in will be yours, and the home you buy will be YOURS! Once you have the facts and information then you can make a quality offer, and feel good about the situation and hopefully enjoy the process of home buying and ownership. ... more
