I've never heard of a "quick claim" deed... I'm thinking you might have misheard, but will be parking here to see if anyone has an answer for you.

This depends on how the property was deeded. Consult with a real estate attorney regarding this.

I have a simple question - why do you want a "rent to own" property?

If it's because you don't qualify for a mortgage now, you better make sure you will qualify at the end of the lease term or you may lose your upfront "option" money.

If you think a rent to own agreement simply means you can buy the house later on, and use all the rent you've paid towatds the purchase, you are incorrect.

If you don't have an upfront deposit available, you may be asked to pay an amount of rent OVER and above the normal rent. Only that part of the rent, the overage, would be used towards the purchase.....or...you would forfeit that if you don't buy the house.

Make VERY sure you understand all the pitfalls involved in this kind of agreement.
Make sure the house has to appraise out.....make sure the seller isn't close to foreclosure or upside down on the mortgage..........there is a lot to consider.

If low credit is a probolem for you now - why not work on that first and then look into buying a home.
Best wishes....

The agent works for a broker. To become a broker, you need additional training and at least 2 years experience. Many agents never make the switch to broker, it comes with additional risks. ... more

Debra (Debbie) Rose answered:
What you are looking for is an FHA loan........houses, per se, are not approved by FHA..............condos are an exception, as they do need to be on the approved FHA list, but any structurally sound single family home can be purchased with an FHA loan

To see if YOU ( not the house, but you!) qualify - I suggest you speak with an agent.....and/or mortgage rep to have this topic, and the home buying process, explained to you in detail.

Best wishes..........

Stephanie Leon answered:
Yes, Hialeah does have the Grandfather clause.

A grandfather clause is a situation in which an old rule continues to apply to some existing situations, while a new rule will apply to all future situations. When something is grandfathered in, it simply means that the law or city code has changed however, since it was grandfathered in it can stay with no problems and anyone new would have to follow the new law or code. For example if the law or code said that a fence can be 6 ft high in the front yard and you pulled the proper permit to have the fence installed then the following year they change the law or code to 4ft you would not have to worry because your fence would be grandfathered in. ... more

Louis Wolfson answered:
First of all it is against the law for agents to discuss fees, as that could be considered price fixing.
Second commissions are negotiable.
Third in a cooperative listing typically the listing broker offers 1/2 there fee to the selling broker (so in your example above I believe you may of misunderstood what the agent told you)
Fourth - there are companies out there that will for a low set amount list your home on the mls. They offer the seller limited services and typically the seller would be responsible for showing the home, negotiating the home and if there is a buyer agent involved compensating that agent.

You dont have to offer compensation on a FSBO to the cooperating broker, but lets say the market price for your home is 100000 and you only have one buyer that came to you from a buyers agent, if you dont want to pay the buyers agent and lets use your fee above 3% and want the buyer to pay then your sales price should be 97000 problem is most lenders dont take fees into the equation seperately and many buyers dont have the additional funds to pay brokerage above the purchase price and that is why it is included in the sales price or in your case 100000 as the bank will loan them against it.

You most likely will owe your real estate agent the commission agreed to in the listing agreement if you sell it to a buyer that had already looked at the property when it was listed. You should have a real estate attorney review your listing agreement prior to agreeing to sell the home. ... more
