There is no magic number or percentage that you can use as a guide. In the Sarasota FL area, the majority of the bank owned homes are priced correctly. You have to look at each home individually. If the home is priced right and is in good condition, the chances are that it will sell at or above list price because there are many buyers interested in the property. Lately the bank homes that I have seen sell below list were homes that were priced too high for the market, or had issues such as a leaking roof or missing AC unit. ... more

Rent to own, or sometimes called Lease Purchase can be structured in a variety of ways. Not all home sellers will be interested in a Lease Purchase, but many will and just need to be assured they have thier overhead covered, so you can always ask. In a typical lease purchase the buyer arranges to lease a home at the same time they take an option to purchase it at a date in the future, say one year. During this time the buyer acts like a tenant, making monthly payments, covering utilities, etc. The critical difference is that most sellers trying to sell their home will not give an option to purchase without the buyer putting down a non-refundable deposit. This is different than a deposit on a rental. For example it is not unusual to see a requirement of a $20,000 deposit placed on a $400,000 home. The reason for this is that the buyer is asking the seller to take the home off the market and lock in a price today, in hopes that they will close in a year. If the buyer chooses not to close, they loose their $20k. So, is it a good idea?.......if you have found a home that you love and can commit to it, but are not ready to close now, it can be a good option. Otherwise, continue to lease and save up money to purchase and then make a move .
Let me know if you have other questions or if I can help you find a property.
