Your options will be somewhere between few and none. If you do find one, the terms are generally very lopsided to the landlord/seller and not the buyer. If you can't qualify by the time the purchase is due, you lose the up front deposit and over market rent that are generally part of these deals.
Best option, fix your credit, save you down payment, rent cheaply for now and get prepared to buy when you will have many more homes to choose from and can compete.

Lori Desjardins answered:
It is because rentals are hard to find right now and property owners are getting very picky about who they rent to just because they can. I am an animal owner too, and I've found this frustrating when I've been between homes. I would take your references and ask the property management company that question. ... more

Ochoco West tends to be a different beast. Without doing a comparative market analysis it is kind of hard to say where your value is. Currently there is a manufactured home on Nye which is close to the same amount of square feet on a smaller lot with a studio apartment above the detached garage. It is on the market for $95,000. Please call me if you'd like me to put together a CMA for you! Hope this helps! ... more

Some states have Brokers who manage or own a Real Estate Office and agents that work underneath them. But some states, like Oregon and Washington, require all of us to become Brokers which requires more education and training. Since your in Oregon, there is no difference between someone who calls themselves an agent or broker. But we have Principle Brokers who are in charge of other Brokers. ... more

I know this question is 1-1/2 years old, and the OP is probably long gone from this site, but it drives me crazy every time I see it because nobody got it right. The violent crime rate statistic in Prineville, if you look carefully at the graph, is 0.88, meaning ZERO POINT EIGHT EIGHT--less than ONE PERCENT of the population has been a victim of a violent crime of any sort. NOT 88%! Completely different interpretation when you look at the graph properly. Remember that the term "violent crime" means any crime committed where the perp either THREATENS or USES force against his victim, ranging from domestic violence complaints, simple assault, all the way up to homicide. They are all lumped together for the purpose of statistical reporting. Contacting the local authorities to get the most current stats and the breakdown of those numbers is highly recommended. ... more

There are no "right to cancel" papers on purchases.
You could attempt a deed in lieu or a short sale to ease the damages, but if you dont qualify for a loan mod, and you cant catch up with the payments, you will noy be able to stay in the home. ... more

HLR answered:
As I said, I have seen it, most likely a property was noted a short sale, and when the only buyer was a family member, that party had to buy it at market value. It just still tagged as a short sale in the listing. Disclosure of all things is done, and all is good. No one related to the owner is allowed to get the deal that most short sales might be. It's fraud if not disclosed, but it does happen. So check into it.

Dirk Knudsen and Kirra Krussman answered:
Try and!

These are the best sites on the web and I am confident there will be some help there. Let's be realistic however. Values are down from 15 to 50% all over Oregon and that area is being hit harder than anywhere.

Wish I have better news. Best thing to do is get an evaluation and that is easy enough and free.

Just send along your info and we can help you out!
