Your best bet for this scenario to be successful is a property that has very little or no mortgage currently against it and has been on the market for quite some time. If the property is too heavily mortgaged that wouldn't make sense to the seller. If it hasn't been on the market very long, then the seller would likely want to wait for a reasonable offer to purchase rather than rent it.
Someone earlier mentioned 117 Riviera Circle. And while the seller would consider a lease option, they paid $1,080,000 and they currently owe somewhere in the neighborhood of $1,097,500. (They are currently asking $1,149,000.)
If this is something that interests you Riviera Circle is a great place to live. We used to live there when the kids still lived at home and loved it.
