At least one of the local realtors falsely advertises their townhomes as houses, not just on this site, but on most of the ones I've used. It's not 1-2 listings, but 6 or more,…

If you are a real estate agent, you can sign up for a free account. If you are not an agent, you can list your home with an agent who can do this for you. Trulia limits advertising to licensed real estate agents and does not allow individuals to list their homes. ... more

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.

Hi, hope you're doing well!

I completely understand; the areas around Nashville are extremely hot right now and that's a fairly common situation to be in. Hermitage is a great area; it's up-and-coming and thriving at the moment. There are a decent amount of homes in your price range that are available right now and I think you'll have a good amount of options.

Hendersonville, TN is another great area to check out. There is a lake, and you can get a lot of house for your money. And it's only about 20-25 minutes from downtown Nashville.

If you need any help in your home search, feel free to get in touch!

Evie Hunt answered:
For various reasons, owner financing and lease/purchase options are not very popular in our area. This may be due to the fact that many people selling a home are doing so because they intend to purchase another home using the sale proceeds. By using the money they receive from their sale, they should have more affordable financing costs for their new purchase. However, for those sellers who are selling second homes, inherited properties, etc. I do wish they would consider these other options. With a proper credit check of the potential buyer, their return on this financial option would probably be greater than many other traditional investments in todays market! ... more

These opportunities are few and far between. You do usually need quite a lot of money down though. Usually your realtor can see in the realtor remarks section of the listing on the MLS whether the seller is offering any owner financing or rent to own options. Good luck! ... more

Janice S Jones answered:
I'm assuming since you are asking in this forum that you were unrepresented by a realtor when you purchased the hoome? If that is the case, you should definitely take your contract documents to an attorney for review. Generally they will not charge you for a consultation. They may charge you to write a letter requesting that you be released from the contract but it is worth talking to someone. ... more

Janice S Jones answered:
I agree with Emily Bock. If you can get a loan it is better to go ahead and purchase now. I know that usually sellers who offer lease purchases are going to be asking for very large downpayments, usually more than you would need for a downpayment on a loan. Consult your lender first to make sure you are not eligible for some type of home loan. You might be surprised! ... more

It's hard to pin it down, but VERY generally east of Tulip Grove, West of Benders Ferry, and North of Division. To be SURE, go to the Bus Route Lookup here and enter the property you are interested in to check which school it's zoned for. http://www.wcschools.com ... more

Section can be a great value to property owners because it is a guaranteed income in most cases and I have had only good experiences with section 8 housing tenants.
