Good morning Angie22,

I'm a veteran mortgage professional with 22+ years experience helping HomeBuyers. My professional opinion is to avoid rent to own situations. Instead, I'd be happy to sit down with you and prequalify you for mortgage financing. We'll review the basics of a successful mortgage approval: IAC or Income, Assets, and Credit. You'll know exactly what loan amounts and programs you're qualified for. If you're not ready yet, you'll learn that, too, and we'll create an "Action Plan" to prepare you for homeownership.

Rent To Own is a better deal for the Seller than it would ever be for a potential Buyer.

The basic concept is finding a way to "force" savings towards a down payment by including a portion of the monthly rental that goes towards that savings. You pay your rent every month and your Landlord deducts a pre-determined amount to hold in a special bank account, called an "escrow" account. Your Landlord holds that money until you have saved up enough---through this "forced-savings" method---to meet a down payment to purchase the home.

The terms of the purchase price, including the down payment amount, and the amount to be set aside from the rental for down payment, are all set down at the time of lease signing.

It's all about helping the renter/tenant save up enough money for a down payment to buy a home (in this case, the one you're renting). But this is a better deal for the Seller because he gets to lock in a purchase price and a buyer today for a future sale.

Saving money for a down payment? Well, heck, you can do that on your own.

If you are dedicated to the idea of buying your own home, you can create your own savings plan to save up enough money for a down payment. And when you have saved up enough for a down payment, if that takes a year or two or more, YOU get to decide on the price you're willing to pay for the house at that time based on current market conditions. You won't be locked in to a price that may be a lot higher than what the house is worth in the future.

With Rent To Own you'll be locked in both to the house and to the price, even if it takes you 3 years to save enough through the forced savings of the rent payments. What happens if three years from now your life situation has changed? Maybe you need a bigger/smaller home. Maybe your employment has relocated. Maybe your credit or income is insufficient to qualify for a mortgage loan.

Find a way to save up on your own; not with Rent To Own.

Give me a call to get prequalified. You may find you're better qualified than you think you are, and, if you're not, at least you'll know how much loan your income and credit qualify you for, and how much you have to save towards down payment and closing costs.

Dear Pica441,

That is correct when you purchase a home there you do not own the land. Edgewater Park is a Coop not a Condo. The development is a Corporation, when you buy a property you are purchasing shares in the Corporation that is allocated to your specific unit. I have a attached an article written by the NY Times on the history on the area and explains how it came to be this type of community. ... more

Bruce McIntyre answered:
That all depends. Is it a duplex? Many different factors go into pricing your home. I hate to say it but with all of the updates. And beauty, the going prices or better yet the prices that similar homes in the area sold for play a major part in factoring the price value of your home.
I am researching it for you now as we speak. But I have seen them go for 200k to almost 400k. I would have to actually see the home to compare it.

I assume you mean Americans with Disabilities Act. That was an act congress put in place trying to make it easier on people with disabilities. Sadly, they forgot that not everyone with a disability is in a wheelchair. In fact wheelchair access can make it a lot tougher on someone with a different disability.

ADA accessibility means that legally the property is open to wheelchair use. The property can be accessed according to what the law requires. Most likely you found it on a business for sale.
