There are not many homes out there where the seller can or will do this. Most need their equity out to move on in their own lives. We have one right now that rents for $750/month that would qualify. It is 2 bedroom and 1 bath. Others may come up from time to time. ... more

There has been a steady increase in the number of investors that are purchasing mid to upper level homes and then looking for good renters to live in them. We are also seeing a few home owners who are willing to rent with the option to buy in the Newton, Kansas area. These are not too plentiful, since many sellers need to sell in order to move on with their lives, but we have been successful in getting some of these set up.

These lists can be picked up for free at the RE/MAX Associates front desk any weekday between 8:30 AM and 5 PM and on Saturday
from 9-2.
