What you need to do is to speak with a Lender/Loan Officer. There as some programs for First Time Buyers, however those programs do have Income Limits. Talking with a Lender/Loan Officer that knows the Strongville area would be the best thing for you to do.

Hello Russ, Don't you love Trulia and the ability to list your home for free? If I were you I would have a rent application at the ready. You probably would want to have the prospective tenant furnish you with a credit report and possibly a background check. Since water and sewer run "with your home" these are utilities you may not be able to put in tenants name and will have to decide how you want to deal with this. Most real estate companies have an "offer to lease" then owner to furnish a final lease acceptable to both both parties.

Your better off looking for preservation companies and general contractors who are approved to work for banks. Asset management companies are rarely going to deal with you on the local level. It's too time consuming for them. They want 1 contact and that contact will handle a region of the United States. That contact will deal with the pain of finding all of the local contractors, vendors to do the work. You want to find that 1 contact they deal with and get approved to work with them.
The article written below talks about contractors looking for business.... more
Consider visiting local realty offices and let them know about your company and the services offered, possibly leave some flyers behind--some of the larger offices do have regular staff meetings, consider asking the broker owner and or office manger if you can speak for a few minutes at one of those meetings, etc.... more
