Absolutely. The listing agent is being paid to get the most money and best terms for the seller. The buyer assumes ALL of the risk. Visit http://naeba.org for a referral.

Rent to own is not for people with bad credit. Rent to own sellers/landlords require an upfront deposit, regular market rent + a premium amount on top of the rent that goes towards the home purchase. After 2 or 3 years, if you fail to buy the home, you lose all the money. The contract that you sign with the landlord/owner states that if you don't qualify for a mortgage loan or decide on a different home or any other reason, the seller keeps all of your money - no refunds.

Are you prepared to lose thousands of dollars? Then find a rental and forget the Rent to Own idea. Since you seem to have trouble finding a regular rental, you need to fix your credit. Obviously, you haven't been working on fixing your credit.

Even if you have to buy a mobile home, that will make more sense than doing Rent to Own.

Well as they say....location,location,location! It really depends on if you are looking to be close to work, school zone, or a certain feature of either of the locations. If it is a wash it just comes down to coming up and drive the area to see which one you have the best feel for and that will be the best way to make your choice. This area is beautiful so it will really be the deciding factor when you come drive the area and take each area in. ... more

Johnson City has a great police force as does Jonesborough. However, most of the Washington County police force lives in or close to Jonesborough because the jail, 2 Courthouses, and maintenance depot is there so if nothing else other than just sheer visibility then you would definitely feel safe on Jonesborough as well as JC. ... more

A buyers agent does all the heavy lifting for you as far as tough negotiating, making sure you have the proper paperwork, keep the process from contract to close going smoothly, and review documents for closing as well as attend closing with you to make sure if anything arises they will be there to help with anything needed to finalize closing. ... more

You could call local lenders and ask them what 100% loan programs they offer. Then you would know the rate and term that each institution and know what the credit score would need to be from each bank in order to qualify for their programs ... more

I would talk to a lender and ask them to advise you as to what your plan of attack should be. Some lenders can send you to credit repair agencies and while that is being worked on for you the lender can be working with you on other items needed to get you ready and get things rolling to get your loan going. ... more
