I wouldn't waste your time on this one because based on the information I have, the owner is nearly upside down on his mortgage which explains why the house sat on the market unsold for 231 days â€“ it was grossly overpriced!
If you're looking for a deal on a house, call or email me and I'll be happy to begin assisting you and helping you with your financing. If you were curious about contacting the owner about "lease to own" opportunities, I would not suggest going down that path for many reasons, all too lengthy to detail here.
But when looking at any property for sale, it is imperative that you speak to a lender and become pre-approved for a mortgage first, so you are positioned to submit an offer the moment a good deal hits the market. The best properties still sell in as little as 7-14 days, even in today's "slow market." So itâ€™s important to have a buyer's agent such as myself to create a profile for you in the MLS database, so you are emailed listings as soon as they hit the market. Please do yourself a huge favor and contact any of the local agents who posted a reply in this thread, and let them help you â€“ it will only benefit you and most agents will assist you at no cost or obligation. I personally never charge you a fee to help you find and purchase a home.
I recently helped a client purchase a remodeled and updated 1940â€™s 4-bedroom home in Hampton for $135,000. It had a remodeled kitchen with granite counters, ceramic tile, and she purchased the home with just $500 down. And the best thing was, since I was able to get all of her closing costs paid for by the seller/investor, she actually received her $500 back after closing! She bascially bought a home with "zero down!"
An agent can do wonders for you, so contact an agent today! Itâ€™s in your best interest!
