Yes, there are school buses to take the children to all the public schools. They also transport the Catholic High School kids.

I would not live anywhere on Wheeling Island. Either end, all the people still walk. It is infested with prostitutes and drug dealers. A 17 year old kid was shot in the playground on the north end. Also the kids wander aimlessly around the entire island (they apparently are not allowed to cross the suspension bridge to wheeling or they are too lazy to do it). Random people will just make camp on your front stoop and if you do not give them problems about it (and as much as you think you would they look really intimidating) they will also sell their drugs from your front step. Abby's lounge on the North end has been robbed several times. And they have "raids" where they shut the entire island off so no one can leave and they do "warrant sweeps" to arrest people. Several run down bars with no respectable people would even look at let alone attend, only the crack heads and prostitutes would venture in. ... more

You are desperate!
Your Credit or Finances, or both, will not allow you to go the conventional route:
You need the Seller to help you out!

The Seller will know it, and you are going to pay dearly for this service:
There aren't too many altruistic Sellers out there.

There is no FORM printed by anyone; there are just too many variables.
The terms that can be written into a Lease/Option can be dangerous to you:
How long is the Option period?
How much money are you putting in to the Option?
What happens if you are not able to execute the Option?
How do you know what your financial situation will be 2-5 years from now?
How much is the rent in the meantime?
Who will be responsible for maintenance and repair in the meantime?
What will be the Market Value of the home in 2-5 years?
What will be the Selling price 2-5 years from now?

This is the Ultimate Caveat Emptor!

Good luck and May God bless

You would need to get a quote from an insurance company. It depends on how much value they are insuring.

Mortgage brokers are the professionals HOWEVER no one is going to lend money home currently above your budget.

SUGGESTION: If you are going to pay off your student loans with tax refund can you borrow that money from a family member pay it off NOW then give them your tax refund.
