Hello Laceyhalstead, why rent if you could own and pay less than rent in TX. You should study RENT vs BUY listings to compare payments.

The rentals in Tomball start from $690 for 1bd 1ba apt but no horses. I did not find rentals with horse boarding space. The purchase in Tomball start from 349k for 2bd 1ba single family ranch home on 5.58 acres.

You may qualify to buy FHA 3.5% down from a minimum 580 fico score and 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score. Your scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary. Check out the web reference link below.

If the seller is willing to lower the price. A cash purchase doesn't put extra money in the seller's pocket. They are usually faster transactions and more likely to close.

Brenda Richards asked:
It's obvious that some of these listings are scams, i.e., $800 for a 4-2-2 in a neighborhood where average rent is $1200-$1500.

Hello Tracey.

The mortgage company of the seller will not service or assist in the transfer of a seller financing deal between you and the seller; it's a conflict of interest. There are third party mortgage servicing companies available for a small monthly fee, but the Real Estate ownership transfer from the seller to you the buyer will need to be done separately.

Give me a call perhaps I can help you out.

Yes some foreclosures are deffinately worth it others are not. Do your research on the home and the neighborhood. Get a local realtor that knows and understands foreclosures. Most importantly get a home inspection! I cannot stress this enough!!! My husband and I bought a foreclosure and are doing most of the work ourselves. We couldn't have the water turned on for inspections due to missing hot water heater. We are still in the midst of fixing plumbing issues. ... more

I know you were looking to rent back in November and your credit score was poor, but I was a struggling single mom at one time. I wish someone had reached out to me and told me about programs that existed to help me, such as down payment assistance programs to buy a home. My lender will help you improve your credit score and won't charged you anything. It is also client privilege protected. I would love to talk to you.
