Have you tried doing a search on trulia to see if you can find any?

Or you could always hire a realtor to represent you and your interests. This would be referred to as a buyers agent. Buyers agents are not typically paid by the buyer but rather the seller pays them as part of the commission they decide upon when they list their home on the market.

What do you mean for sale on contract?

Do you mean listed for sale with a realtor which involves contracts?

Hi, Why would you want to use another agent to make a new higher offer???
It seems that your first offer was not the only one and then they went through inspection or the buyers backed out for other reasons, who knows....

But I do not see any reason for you to use another agent (this was your buyers agent, I am assuming...
an agent who is working for YOU who presented your first offer, that was rejected by the Seller throught the sellers' Realtor (the listing agent of the property), correct...

You can just contact YOUR agent and ask to present a new offer.... if now the Seller does not have another offer at hand, and the offer they accepted (may be for other reasons than the price, could have been other terms, a higher down payment, faster closing whatever!) fell through, they may just consider your original price you offered or at least negotiate it up with you and then you still have time to have an inspection done etc. etc.

In your situation I would sit down with your Agent (did you sign a buyer representation contract with your original agent?) discuss the situation and see what your agent knows, and then proceed with an offer!

Good Luck to you!

If the house has an accepted offer you can put in another offer. If the house is under contract you cannot.
In todays market the seller is not always accepting the highest offer-the terms of the sale are as important.
i.e. - Does the buyer have anything to sell? How much money do they have for downpayment? Do they have a good credit score and will be able to get a mortgage with no problem?

Why are you looking at a Rent To Own? These can be very, very good, or very, very dangerous. Make sure you are involving an attorney to represent you, most real estate agents do not even know their way around these transactions.

If you are in a declining market, and you are agreeing now to buy in 1-2 years, what happens if the price drops below the agreed upon price?

Many renters today are finding that the homes they are in are being foreclosed upon, and they are being forced to move with little notice and never getting their deposits back. What would happen to your transaction if the current owner failed to pay his loan?

Good luck

WOW, if you have record of you paying your rent via canceled checks, money order, certified funds that is your proof of payment or any receipt from the property owner. Sorry to hear this however your need to read your lease agreement terms and conditions for both parties obligation. You can also confer with real estate attorney regarding your rights.
