It's all up to you. Owning a home has it's own pluses and minuses, and so does renting a home. If you own a home, you get tax deduction and you build equity. When renting a home, you are paying your landlord's mortgage and you don't build any equity. However, having said that, if you own your home you are responsible for any repairs on the home. If you are renting a home, it's possible that you are responsible for the repair or it could also be the landlord's responsibility.
The bottom line is, which do you prefer? Some people do not want the hassle of taking care of a home so they rent (eventhough that doesn't necessarily mean that the landlord will repair all your repair request) but some want to have their own home so they can build equity and take advantage of the tax benefit.
I'd be happy to assist you in your home search if you are not currently working with a realtor. You can reach me through my profile.
I have been using Inbedrock.com to help me navigate all financial questions regarding purchase of a new home. It is great help to analyze ALL costs of home purchase and their effect on whether house makes for a smart investment- very educational + easy to use- learn about closing costs, initial renovation costs, Title Insurance + HO Insur, Real Estate Taxes, Mortgage Financing (how much loan$ do I qualify for? and can I afford monthly payments on my income/assets?), Utility bills, Broker commissions, etc. Inbedrock.com also helps Renters figure out if better to Buy v Rent, and explains financial reasons why with a great graph. This is an invaluable tool especially for first-time homebuyers. Get smart with biggest investment of your life... Inbedrock.com... more
If you are still looking for a home I would love to help. The thing is, many times mortgages will be cheaper than a typical monthly rent. Also, the money you spend each month gets you one step closer to owning your own home free and clear and thus financial freedom. If you are looking for an agent to help find a great home (or rental) I can help.

If you can find one, a rent-to-own property will require a high dollar investment which will not be refunded should you change your mind.
If you are uncertain to buy or rent, rent for know and buy when you're ready!
You can absolutely get a home under a discharged chapter 7. In regards to your little down payment, I can tell you that there are programs out there that you can get a loan under with a $0 money down payment, especially in the zip codes that you're looking in. Call, text, or email me and I can give you more detailed information.... more
Generally if a property is for sale--most sellers will want or need to sell, therefore turning the property into a rental may not be an option--consider working with any local agent and take a look at available rentals--or for by owner rentals, check local print media, Craig's List, any other real estate related website, etc.... more
