I have an investor that does this, we can see if you are a good fit. You can rent for up to 5 years, and if you don't buy you get your deposit back.

Road-noise buyers are typically "value" buyers. Usually a home is priced in consideration of the drawback, so will attract a buyer who is seeing much smaller homes in the same price range. If that's not true for you, there are incentives you can add that will appeal to the value buyer, such as contributing to closing costs, especially in the form of a loan buydown, where you can actually pay the lender points up front to significantly reduce the mortgage payment for 1 or more years.

And I recently sold a house that backed a busy road because the buyers wanted to run a daycare business and liked the exposure and the fact that there was a school across that busy road... So, look for possible benefits to your specific location, too.

Try speaking with the HOA and show them they signed off on the house and explain that having to repaint now would cause a hardship. but that you'd be willing to repaint to their satisfaction within the next 3-4 years. They may or may not be reasonable. While you could attempt to pursue the old owners it's probably not worth the time or effort. ... more

Marcio Wilges answered:
I think it is best to seek professional advice from a realtor who could help you with the financial breakdown so that you can see for yourself which option benefits you more financial wise. You could also sit down and ponder on a few factors like the work involved in both rental and sale. Renting out would mean you only need to perform a minor removal of your belongings whereas selling your house would require you to clear everything out. ... more

Jilida answered:
If the listing is through Equater I find it easier to deal with than the traditional call made on a daily routine. I would have your agent that you are represented by, prepair a CMA and have the listing agent send it to the negotiator, secondly I would ask them to do a BPO [Broker Price Opinion]. As long as you are within the BPO their is no reason for the bank to not go forward with your offer. You may also send in a addendum increasing the price by a bit.

I would suggest contacting a lawyer. Let me know if you need a couple recommendations for attorneys I have worked with in the area. If you are looking on your own for an attorney make sure they are a real estate attorney who works with foreclosures. ... more

Janine Ward answered:
It is possible to make proposal to the owner of the land/lot that you are wanting to build on and see if they would offer seller financing for the next year. Do you already have the land identified or do you need assistance finding such property?
I live and work in the exact area you are in and would be happy to help if you don't already have an agent relationship.
