Totally possible, but it may not be easy! You'll have to find a landlord willing to work with you, but if you can prove your income is enough to cover the place you should be able to find something. ... more

Kathy Burgreen answered:
Once a contract is accepted and signed by both parties, the only out you have is the contingencies you put in place (financing, inspection, etc.). If there are no contingencies, you're stuck with this home. If you're scared somebody will submit a higher offer on the 2nd home, oh well, that's part of buying real estate. You win some, you lose some. Stick with the first home since you already submitted your contract. ... more

I would assume that you have already found an agent. If you have any future referrals, use Park Place they can refer out your referrals for you and pay your brokerage back a 25% referral fee without having to be active under them. There is no upfront costs. ... more

If it was rent to own .... you will need to refund the tenant any parts of the rents or deposits affiliated with the ownership piece or the option to buy.

Normally the option is non-refundable, but since it is you wishing to unwind the purchase option and not the tenant's choice or failure to act, you will need to refund all monies other than the normal rents that would have been paid without a rent to own option. ... more

Victory Property Management answered:
Yes, if you have enough money to do so. You will need a 20% down payment to get the best interest rates and not pay mortgage insurance. From there, your mortgage, interest, insurance, home owner association fees and real estate taxes cannot exceed 35% of your income. If you can meet those qualifications and have decent credit, then head down to a local lender to see if you can qualify for a loan. ... more

I would be more than happy to a Competitive Market Analysis for anyone wanting to know the value of their property in Randolph, Davidson, Guilford or Forsyth Counties, using similar properties that are listed, and have sold.

Be aware that scams do exist; be mindful that such web sites are third party sites, so the information is fed by various sources, therefore data is not really verified. If you choose not to work with an agent of your own always verify ownership before exchanging any money/personal information--make certain they are who they claim to be. Never wire any money, if it sounds too good to be true, it is. For scam related information see link.

Lori Jeltema answered:
Many sites just want your money so they can send you a 'list' of foreclosures. Many homes on this list are not actually foreclosures.

Almost all of the homes that get foreclosed on are going to end up in the MLS where a good, local agent can access them. Get together with an agent. Prepare your finances (many foreclosures require a cash purchaser or rehab loan). Prepare to show proof of funds or the ability to finance a rehab loan so you don't tick some agent off by wasting their time working for you when you are not prepared.

Ask the agent 'how would you prepare yourself if you were in the market to buy a foreclosure' and follow that example.

Good luck
