Hello Chris, I would to know what area are you thinking to move to. Yes, it is possible to find a home that you will rent and have the price already negociated, interest rates and time frame. It is very legal and possible. I hope that you have some money save for a downpayment, as that will make it easier to present offers and negociate.

I will be more than happy to meet you and talk about diferent options for you. Please email back, margot.jahn@gmail.com, or call 858 454-7005.

As many of the agents have cautioned, there are many risks involved. Perhaps one of the most significant is your interest rate. If you are not getting a loan immediate - e.g., from the seller, then you risk all of your deposit money against interest rates staying in a range where you will be able to get a loan.

Just for the sake of discussion, take the example below with $100,000 passed through to the seller. Now, let's suppose interest rates increase 50% from 5.5% to 8.25% for your loan. Will you able able to get a loan from a traditional lender at that point? Probably not - only because you are likely to look for a home near your buying limit today (based on interest rate) without knowing what will happen 3-yrs from now when you might actually get the loan.

Hey, could rates go down again to 4%, yes. But how likely is that.

My point here is _not_ "don't do it", but rather, make sure you protect yourself. I believe it is better to put less money down (have at risk) with less guarantee on the price just because of the overall uncertainty in the market.

Best regards,

Robert T. Boyer, Ph.D.

Hi. What area? I am in Carmel Valley Del Mar - Carlsbad. I just did a deal That was very cool. Purchase price was 700,000. Buyer gave seller $100,000. Buyer took title. Seller holding original loan in his name for 3 yrs. Lease options are tricky. They require you to put up money to hold the purchase price. Not a good use of your money. Call me to discuss options. I have done hundreds or leases too. Sher. 619 993. 5722. Shersproperties @ gmail

Hi Chris,

As you can see, many agents are available to help you. I'm in different neighborhoods every day, so it really just depends on where you'd like to live, and what your budget is. Options are just one way to get into a home you'll eventually own. There are also super low down payment loans available that aren't as credit driven as conventional loans, so you may have more than one way to go. Call anytime, 619-825-6421, I'm happy to help!

Warm Regards,

Hi Chris,
I'd be very careful with these rent to owns.
Most end up being scams so make sure you do your research if tha's the way you want to go.
