Miekeba - for purposes of clarification.....what do you mean by: "maybe a lease option will be better for you"???
How are you differentiating that from what has already been discussed?
As the agents below have discussed, a "rent with an option to buy" agreement is usually not a good plan for someone who is not financially sound.
There is upfront, non refundable deposit money, or rent paid over and above the normal rent that would be forfeited if the house is not purchased.......there are a lot of potential dangers lurking for the buyer.........and, if the seller could sell now, most would.......so the selection of homes is limited and the sellers might not be financially sound, either....and the list goes on as to why this is not a good idea.
"Rent to own", "rent with an option to buy"......"lease with an option(to own)".......as far as I know are all pretty much one and the same....
So as not to confuse the poster, what exactly are you suggesting?
