Unfortunately, you can't.

Trulia only allows agent-listed homes to be posted on their site.

For Sale By Owners can't list here.

Try...........,, or - just to name a few sites

Best wishes....

Tracy Santrock answered:
In North Carolina it is possible to do a Lease with an Option to Purchase or a lease with a purchase agreement that would keep the purchase price fixed when it's time for you to buy. However, our real estate market has been so healthy that not many owners are willing to tie their properties up with a rental waiting to close in the future.

FYI - most lenders are more than willing to lend to people with a fixed income. Of course you still have to meet the guidelines for obtaining a mortgage but basically if you can afford your new home you will be able to obtain a mortgage.

You really would be well advised to find yourself an experienced buyer broker to assist you. It's not going to cost you anything and I believe it's likely to save you time and money. I've attached a link below on what to look for and what to ask when you're interviewing buyer brokers. You are at a decided disadvantage if you start negotiating with the listing agent/ seller as they do this for a living every day and know the contracts you'll be using much better than you do.

No one here on Trulia is going to be able to really offer you much better advice unless they specifically know the property you're considering and have actually seen it.

hopes this helps.

Sandy, If I had your email I could send you the listings that are at least 3 bedroom where the owner will consider "rent to own" situations.

If you're borrowing the difference from your mother, then "yes". If you're planning on borrowing that amount from a traditional lender (ie: bank)... they'll want some sort of collateral against the loan. ... more

Alan May answered:
The market doesn't care how much you owe, nor how much you're paying your Realtor.

Buyers will only pay what they perceive to be "market value" or less. So the best thing to do is to ask your Realtor to do a market analysis, and determine what market value really is. Have them back it up with properties currently on the market (your competition) as well as recently sold properties (closeds). Look at that date carefully, and as objectively as possible.

Once you've determined your target sales price, see if after "closing costs" it covers your $118,000 and your Realtor's fees.

Good luck.

Christopher Pagli answered:
You mentioned the market is slow, so it seems the agent is not to blame. I would have a discussion first and ask the agent to detail the marketing plan they have implemented. Sellers always think it's the agents fault when their home isn't selling. There are many factors status, marketing, pricing, condition, etc. Your agents service could very well be lacking but be sure before you jump ship :)
