FSBO/rental in my area; I want to offer a lease option at a lower sale price; any advice?I have found a home that I like that is a FSBO/rental. The asking price is too high I think for the market in my area (we are at the top of the national list for foreclosures and nothing is really moving unless it's a steal), but I think the rental price is fair. I want to offer a lease option so I can put more towards the down payment in the future than what I currently have and I would like to negotiate a lower price. Should I enlist the help of a realtor? Or does anyone have any knowledge or advice for me to pursue the deal on my own? Any help is appreciated, thanks!January 20 2009 - Chicago00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
