Plenty of options are available for you depending on your budget and size requirements.

Do you need a specific elementary school or middle school?

Feel free to contact me, I'd be glad to assist you with your search.

Be prepared to provide your work and past rental history in addition to your credit history.

Eric -

This home is currently "under contract" with a short sale contingency between the buyer and seller.

I'll be happy to send you additional homes, that are actually AVAILABLE, as Trulia.com will not always show contingency status. Our website:

www.dupagecountyhomefinder.com

Don't let the name deceive you...you can search the entire northern Illinois MLS.

Our office is in downtown Aurora (River and Downer) if you would like to sitdown and discuss further.

Thanks!

Dawn, it appears that this home is listed for sale, not for rent. There are scammers out there that take pictures off the internet then advertise the homes for rent. The rent prices are almost always far below market value. If anyone tries to get you to send money without being phyically present RUN. They also should be able to show the home. This is in all likelihood a scam. ... more

Sure, you will still have to prove you have good credit and are on track for a mortgage. Sellers generally don't like to see a long term on a rent to own, so the shorter the term the more appealing it looks to them. Ditto for placing a down-payment.
Contact a local Realtor, have them look for those listed specifically with this type of financing as an option and go from there.

good luck

I would suggest you ask a professional lender that question. I can recommend you to First Centennial Mortgage, Linda Koehling, 630-806-2101 or email her at Linda.Koehling@gofcm.com.
She can answer these questions for you. If once you get pre-approved you would like to look at homes, let me know what your price range is and what area you are interested in and I will send you homes to look at. Thank you, Mike ... more

I don't think anybody can accurately predict that. But home values are going up slowly. I hope interest rates will stay down. You are smart to save for a down payment. Having your financial house in order will get you on the right path to buy a home. ... more

Yep... never wire money to someone you haven't met, for a property that you haven't seen.

When you say it out loud, it makes a lot of sense, doesn't it?

I suggest you contact a local Realtor that is able to send you available listings and then take you out this week to look at the ones that work for you. Good Luck!

Find yerself a rental, owned and handled by an individual, not a management company:
Go meet them and talk; tell them your story and don't lie or exaggerate, be honest and open.
If they won't rent to you, you probably didn't want them as a landlord anyway.

Good luck and may God bless

Hi Lenell,
Buying a foreclosure home can help you to get a fantastic deal on a home. Some foreclosure homes offer a great value and some others may be priced low but need a lot of work. If you have not looked into foreclosures before contact a local agent who has experience in this area and can help you find that perfect home. You will need to get pre-approved for your loan and provide proof of that with any offer you may make. This is a good first step if you have not already done that.

All the best,
Gary Geer

If the price seems too good to be true given the location and size, it's probably a scam... And yes they are running rampant on this site! You could work with a licensed realtor who will work to protect you during this process. Best of luck to you! ... more

Mike Cluck answered:
Yes, we have a really good program that allows you to qualify as a renter and you can choose the length of the rental term from minimum of 1 year to a maximum of 5 years. The price to purchase the home is made known upfront in the lease. If you are in the Fox Valley Area and would like more information, call me at 630-802-5825. ... more

Ron Thomas answered:
A LEASE/OPTION is very dangerous:
There is no set CONTRACT,
The TERMS can be daunting,
No one can see into the future; how much the house should sell for in 3-5 years, so it will have to be inflated to protect the Seller,
You don't know where you will be, financially, in 3-5 years,
You would lose all the money you have put in to the Option,
IT WILL NOT HELP YOU RE-BUILD YOUR CREDIT!

Renting and paying your bill will re-build your credit.

Evelyn Santiago answered:
This was a short sale that closed on 8/29/12. It is not currently active on the MLS. Your best bet for up to date information is to have a realtor send you direct listings from the MLS. 3rd party sites have outdated information that sometimes can be manipulated to appear active.

Feel free to contact me if you would like me to send you the latest listings in your price category. Before homes can be shown you will need a pre-approval letter from a local lender.
