Take a drive down Hilton Ave (just West of I-270 off West Broad) and call on some signs. Those rent for under $500. Good luck!

If you were to put a home in contract say next week it would take you about 6 weeks to close on the property. That would be early to mid April. Your first payment on your new home would be June 1. Have you spoken with a lender and been pre approved for a loan ? This is the first step in the home buying process. If you are working with an agent they can guide you thru the provess if you are not working with an agent and should you care to discuss further please feel free to contact me at 614-323-0420 or e mail me at Dale Cook ... more

Hi Yvonnetoria,

Very sorry for the situation you are in. It may be very difficult for you to break your lease. It would have to be mutual. I would make two suggestions, not as a realtor, but as someone who is trying to help out.
1. Speak with mangement, someone who can make the decision and offer to buy out your current lease. Negotiate paying 3 months rent up front to mutually break the lease. I mention mutual becasue you MUST make sure before you pay anything that they are willing to let you out of the lease. If you give them the keys and some money put don't have anything in WRITING that they are letting you out for the buy out fee you could still be stuck.
2. Speak with an attorney. There may be some hardship statutes or something to that effect that may allow you to break your lease such as a death in the family, lost job, military service, injury or health issues. A lease is a contract. BOTH parties must agree in writing to alter it.

Look to see if there is a legal aid office near you that you can consult with an attorney, for little or maybe no fee and see what advice they can offer. Maybe if you can prove the premises uninhabitable or some health concern with the apartment , or if victim of a crime. Please consult with an attorney to explore your options.

I wish you well,
Jeffrey Paeltz, SFR ABR

You are desperate!
Your Credit or Finances, or both, will not allow you to go the conventional route:
You need the Seller to help you out!

The Seller will know it, and you are going to pay dearly for this service:
There aren't too many altruistic Sellers out there.

The terms that can be written into a Lease/Option can be dangerous to you:
How long is the Option period?
How much money are you putting in to the Option?
What happens if you are not able to execute the Option?
How do you know what your financial situation will be 2-5 years from now?
How much is the rent in the meantime?
Who will be responsible for maintenance and repair in the meantime?
What will be the Market Value of the home in 2-5 years?
What will be the Selling price 2-5 years from now?

This is the Ultimate Caveat Emptor!
