Vochun,

Rent to owns are rare and even more rarely are they a good deal for the renter/buyer. The vast majority of rent to own renter/buyer's never end up buying the house. They are a great deal for the landlord/Seller as they get to collect large up front deposits and over market rent only to do it all over again in the same house. I consider it basically immoral and predatory in most cases.

Resolving credit issues isn't rocket science and a local mortgage lender can and often do assist buyers with this. Many things you can do yourself, others the lender can direct or assist you with.

Most people in this position are far better off renting the least expensive place they can stand to live in and save up some down payment, get on a budget and fix their credit. Once you are qualified, you can select any listed property in your price range and you've fixed the issues that hurt your credit.

You might want to start out in a real estate referral company before going head first as a full-time agent as you have to pay the board of Realtors and the MLS $1,000+ to become active. Take a look at www.ParkPlaceNetwork.com which is a great place for new agents. Good luck! ... more

UpNest Top Realtors answered:
Hi Suzanna,

You would have to pay for what's called a flat fee listing service for your home to be on Trulia. You can easily post on Zillow, though.

We created UpNest (http://www.upnest.com) to help home sellers get the best value possible. All you have to do is submit a few details about your home, and we'll invite several top local agents to submit proposals to you. Since agents are competing to earn your listing, they bring out their best commission rates and value added services, saving you a lot of money. There's no risk to try us out at all, and it's completely free for you.

Good luck!

Randee Head answered:
Yes, it's a lousy restaurant called Southern Comfort.

The staff at this restaurant doesn’t know its policies. It doesn’t keep its website up-to-date. I was overcharged & issued a $15 credit. I asked if I could use my multiple coupons (1 per entrée) with the credit & was told I could. Tonight’s manager, Jason White, would only honor 1 even though I told him I had done it before & was told it was no problem. The food is ok. The prices are ok considering quality & portion size. However, you never know what you’ll encounter. Imagine if you called & asked if you could use multiple coupons & were told yes. After dinner, when paying the check, you’re told they will only honor 1. It could happen to anyone. They don't care about their customers. I can't imagine anyone doing this to a repeat customer who had placed previous orders & not been told there was a problem. Incompetence shouldn’t be encouraged. Customer abuse shouldn’t be tolerated. I suggest eating elsewhere. They don't bother to train their employees, & they punish their customers. ... more

Legal questions can only be answered by a lawyer, you can contact the Georgia Dept of Community Affairs and see what they say. They have a publication called Georgia Landlord Tenant Handbook (google it). Your lease should state who pays for the utilities including heat. ... more

Jimmy Payne answered:
In a normal market the answer would be yes. With the shortage of homes on the market and with the large turn around in Warner Robins, dropping the price may not be necessary. The listing price set based on the sellers timeframe comparable sales and market conditions. If the seller is willing to wait for full price and their timeframe is 12-24 months a low offer may not work. If you are working with an agent, have them check the comparable sales and see if the list price is in line with the market. If it is high, offer less and have your agent provide the comps. If it is in line with the market, you should offer less but keep in mind that the seller may counteroffer. Making an initial offer will get the negotiations started and hopefully you can succeed in your purchase at the right price for both of you. ... more
