Buyer to pay rent during extended escrowHi,I'm a first time buyer and just was notified by my realtor that our offer on a home was accepted. The only problem is that the seller was a cash investor who just purcahsed the property and now needs 90 days before he can sell the property to me. Per my realtor, in order to get the property, I need to rent it for the next three months from the seller. The rent will not go towards anything, purchase price, closing costs, etc... This is supposed to be to cover the sellers carrying costs for having to keep escrow open.My question is... am I going to get screwed? Is this normal? Any suggestions?
