Hi, Commission rates are negotiable and can vary. The key to negotiating the best rate is to compare and interview several agents in your local area. We started UpNest ( to help you compare top agents that compete to earn your business. Since agents compete for you, they offer their very best rates and services. You'll also get to "comparison shop" like you do for all the other things you usually pay for. It's free and there's no risk to try us out, Good luck! ... more

Deniece Mayberry answered:
Hi, Angela.

Not many owner-landlords are familiar with rent-to-own. It's not something that is done very often in this marketplace. It may be because most are not familiar with how the terms of a rent-to-own contract can be written and depending on the price range, most homes are selling fairly fast in our current marketplace.

How would you want to do this? Rent with an option to buy or an actual lease purchase contract? Would you want some of the monthly rent that you're paying go toward your future closing costs? Do you want the owner to continue making repairs or would you take on that responsibility during the lease period?

There are a lot of things that need to be considered and, as you can see, I am somewhat familiar with this method of home ownership.

My contact information follows. If you have any questions or would like to discuss your plans, please don't hesitate to contact me.

David Burnham answered:
One thing to remember about short sales is that they should not be thought of as a way to get out from a house that you lost money on. Short sales are a tool that the bank accept as an alternative to foreclosure when the lender can no longer make their monthly payments.

Areas that have lost a lot over the past few years have started to see some rebound. Short selling your home is defaulting on your loan and your credit will be ruined for 7 years. I would suggest that you stick it out for another few years and save up some money and you should hopefully get to a point where you may still sell for a lose, but at least you can cover your financial commitment to the bank and move into a better situation.
