Hello Richard,

I do not see any that are specifically rent-to-own, in those towns, but there may still be options that would allow you to purchase with very, very little money down that you might be able to recover at the closing with what is known as a sellers concession, where the seller gives you a portion of the purchase price back. Depending upon your credit, this may yet be a very good time for you to buy! There is also the homebuyer tax credit to consider. Why don't you give me a call at (973) 420-1156 to discuss this further.

Warm regards,

Erik Farber

Hello Siva,
Hope you are doing well. When you are looking out older(and newer too) homes you want to ask for a seller's disclosure from the listing agent to find out what the owner knows about the condition, both past and present about the house. The agent themself should give you their insight about anything they see with the condition of the house that might be of concern. Remember as well that most contracts of sale in New Jersey have contingencies for inspections so you can have knowledgeable people examine the house for any defects before you complete your purchase.
Some things to consider with older homes..... many are located in the most convenient areas of a town since towns usually develop outward....bedrooms in general are smaller, living rooms bigger..... and lastly, that all homes become older homes. Even your 1-5 year old home today will need updating 10 years from now.
Call me if you have more questions.
