This home is not currently for sale and it's actually tough to say if it has sold after foreclosure since there is no street number with the listing. If you are looking for homes in that area and not currently working with an agent feel free to contact me and I will be happy to send you a list of homes that are actually for sale in your price range. If you are working with an agent just ask them to send you a list of all the homes available that meet your needs. The homes that are actually for sale with be in that list as Trulia, Zillow and other online sites often have outdated and innacurate information. ... more

That was the foreclosure sale when the bank took the property back. That is why the price is so high.

Bernell-

I'm sure that time could work. The first question is - do you have a Realtor that you are working with already as your Buyer's Agent?

If so, I am sure they�39;d be happy to arrange it for you, or if they're unavailable, typically the listing agent will help out and show to you as a favor to your agent. However, if you don't have a Realtor you're working with already - then the first step is to hire someone to represent YOUR interests.

I, or any of my colleagues here, would be happy to represnt you. The first step is to provide you the Working with Agents brochure which is mandatory in NC and explains what it means to have a Buyer's Agent helping you.

If you'll use my web reference below, and follow it to the Buyer's section, you can find the brochure and my perosnal take on Agency in NC. or, just email me!

Typically, many listing agents would advise their sellers against accepting a lease with an option to purchase. It depends on the sellers' situation...they may welcome the $ toward paying the mortgage if they've already relocated somewhere else and will be paying 2 mortgages; however, there's no real guarantee that the buyer will continue w/ the purchase at the end of the lease. Often, folks who can't qualify for a loan at the beginning of the process may try to negotiate a lease/purchase in order to get into the home and improve their credit to that point that they can eventually close on the property. Sellers may interpret that as a bad thing because if the buyer can't qualify now, they won't be able to qualify at the end of the lease--especially considering the tightening of ever-changing lending guidelines. In a worst case scenario, the buyer would default on rent, not adequately take care of the home, and if, for some reason, the tenant had to be evicted, then there would be months spent in dealing w/ the summary ejectment, all of which cost the seller/landlord $.

Another situation that works out better for sellers is if someone is qualified to purchase once their home sells in another area. I'd encourage my sellers to do a credit check and background check w/ references before considering renting the property--at which point an attorney would need to draft the appropriate documents because the standard Offer to Purchase doesn't handle lease options. I'd also ask that they collect not only a security deposit toward renting but another deposit toward the purchase that is non-refundable, but applied to the buyer's side of the transaction at closing. Typically, you'll have more luck getting a lease w/ option to purchase if the home has been on the market for a long time and the sellers may welcome the $ toward the mortgage payment.

You'd have to contact the listing agent directly so that he/she could ask the seller if it's an option. Sometimes agents will put that info in the remarks on MLS (which also show up on Realtor.com).

Hope that helps! Have a great afternoon!

Wendy
