Pcwitz asked:
The property is contingent and based on the inspection results, we plan on purchasing. Also, we would not list it as available for rent until after the closing, of course.

You may be able to locate a rental property by contacting a Realtor or checking the multiple sources available. Rent to own may or may not be published, but you might consider approaching the landlord about that kind of arrangement prior to signing a lease to determine your options. ... more

Hi Tim,
Welcome to Pittsburgh! I am also a Pittsburgh transplant and have fallen in love with the city and surrounding communities. There are many wonderful and affordable neighborhoods to live. As Brian stated before much depends on where you are working and what type of commute you are open to having. Will your wife be looking for work? Are you looking for a newer development or an older neighborhood?Since you have a child, the school district would be an important factor as well. Pittsburgh has many parks, museums and attractions. How important is easy access to these amenities to you and your family? I would be happy to help you in learning about Pittsburgh neighborhoods and to send you information about surrounding communities and area attractions.

David Henninger answered:
Rent-to-own solutions have as many flavors as a buyer and seller can come up with working together. These arrangements can be great for someone with bad credit, although a poor cash situation will limit your options somewhat.

In general I advise buyers to avoid seller financing unless they have a solid finance background because an unscrupulous seller could easily take advantage. At a minimum, keep these things in mind:

-Any house listed with a Realtor will be tough to acquire without a significant down payment, as the agent will likely want to collect their commission upon the sale, and the seller will not want to pay it out of pocket.

-When a seller takes back paper, they usually expect to get a good sale price in exchange. In other words it may be tough to get a great sale price *and* seller financing.

-Many sellers will offer a loan with a long term (20-30 year) loan amortization (and therefore low payments), but will structure it so that you have to pay the remaining principal balance after a short term like 3-5 years. It's called a balloon payment. Be wary of these arrangements because if your credit, job situation, or some external factor prevents you from refinancing out with a bank loan before the balloon is due, you may lose the house.

The finance terms you are looking for--ideal from the buyer's standpoint are:

-Low interest rate
-Long term on the loan with no balloon payment due

Make sure that you get a good real estate agent an/or attorney on your side as well. The devil's in the details in any real estate transaction, and introducing seller financing makes that even more true.

Give me a call if you'd like to talk about it further. Good luck with your new home!
