Rent to owns are what ever the owner and renter want to make them. There is no one size fits all with them. Just understand they rarely work out so owners don't really like to deal with them and those that do probably understand them and make the terms even more in the favor of themselves. A renter can lose a lot of money of these things, so I suggest people avoid them. Many rent to own renters do not understand you will still have to get a bank loan to be able to buy the house in a year or you default and lose the money you put down. ... more

This is a great time to buy! Homes are very affordable and mortgage interest rates are at historically low levels. The real estate market is starting to heat up and the inventory is starting to thin, so you won't want to wait much longer if you're going to buy.

Let me know if you have any questions regarding the buying process. I've helped many first time home buyers.

Thanks and good luck!

Hi Czeller92831
As realtors, we are forbidden from giving legal or tax advice, and your question is best answered by an attorney.
Wishing you all the best,

You just about answered your own question. Look for a neignborhood that the homes were recently remodeled, painted, landscaping, etc. What we like to call "Pride in your neighborhood." Stay away from busy streets, commercial areas, graffiti, and areas where the neighborhood has just given up.

If you need assistance with your search please call or email me. I just finished a remodel of a home at 1461 W. Ash, Fullerton not too long ago which I purchased as a fixer. Take a look at this neighborhood so that you can see the turnaround.
