At this time, unfortunately, we currently do not have listings for rent to own homes. You may try your luck though and search our website using the Keyword section of the search filter which can be found in the All Filters button. However, these listings are extremely rare.

Please follow these steps to begin your home search:

1. Click the "Rent' tab at the top of our homepage.
2. Enter your desired city and state in the search bar and hit Enter.
3. Click 'Max Price' to select what your highest price would be to pay for a home. Click 'Min Price' to set the lowest price you would pay.
4. Click 'More Filters'.
5. Select your preferred property type, square footage, etc.
6. Click the red 'Apply' button.

This will begin to pull up listings that are more tailored to what you are looking for.

If you are interested in a listing, click on the "Contact the agent" button to get in touch with a real estate professional in your area. You can also take advantage of our vast network of agents here:

We hope your experience with Trulia is memorable and thank you for using Trulia for all your real estate needs.

Before buying a condo, there are a number of questions I would ask regarding Rules & Regulations, Bylaws and voting rights, BUDGETS, Budget Reserves for big ticket maintenance (a very important factor), routine maintenance, the Board (try to get & read several months worth of meeting minutes) and whether there are any current or pending lawsuits against the condo association.

The financials of a condo association are, in my opinion, as important (if not more so) than current monthly fees. Is the association meeting it's current financial obligations? Do they have sufficient reserves for the more expensive maintenance/repair items (such as roofs) or can you expect to see special assessments to help cover costs? How many owners are behind in their payments?

Meeting minutes will give you a better idea as to what is going on within the condo community -- are they having issues with an owner/tenant that may lead to a lawsuit? Are they discussing unexpected maintenance issues? Rule changes?

I would also want to know how many units are owner occupied and how many are used as rentals. If there are a large number of rentals within the community and you are looking for something to use as your residence, you may want to rethink that particular community. Investor owners generally vote with their wallets in mind.

Although the state of FL requires condo sellers to provide you with a specific set of condo docs that does include most recent financials if you request them in writing (usually with your written offer), it makes sense to get the financials and Rules & Regulations up front, before you write an offer so you can decide if you wish to pursue an offer on a particular property.

Your agent should be able to track down the information for you if you ask.

How long ago was it put in the MLS? It can take a few days for the new info to show up here. If it's been more than a week, I'd contact the Trulia help desk.

Personally I always will buy a home first, then put my current home on the market. It gives me time to do repairs or updating in the new home. It gives me time to move, I have too much stuff, not quite enough to make that TLC show, but still more than I should. Moving this way keeps you from having to do a double move, or forcing you to put your items in storage and live in a rental. The draw back is double payments and upkeep on 2 homes. Also not everyone can qualify for a new loan, while still owning their old house. ... more

One way is by checking the county's property website ( In the left-hand column, click on "Search our Database" (I use "By Address" but you can also choose other search options). After you enter the address in question (or other search-option info), click on "Search Query" at the bottom. Once it brings up the listing for that address, look in the column to the right called "TAX DISTRICT." if it says "SM" it is City of Seminole property...but if it doesn't, it's in the "Unincorporated" part of the county. There IS a process to request that an "Unincorporated" property become part of the "City of Seminole" but it takes time, money and can check on further details of this process by contacting the Seminole City Hall's Mark Ely at phone #727-391-0204, or at 9199 113th Street, Seminole during regular business hours. ... more
