In my opinion, connect with a good agent that can assist with locating a property that will meet your needs. There may be opportunities the agent is aware of that are not currently listed.

I've had success with listings that have long days on market. At this point, a seller may be open to other options.  Be prepared to show a strong plan of how you will be come loan-qualified in the shortest amount of time, so the seller knows you are serious and sincere about wanting to PURCHASE your property.

I've also have some creative methods I use to reach our to cooperating agents in my area to find the hard-to-find rent to own properties.

They DO exist!

I agree, its rare to find that and rarely works out. Generally we see, at the end of the year, the client doesnt want the place anyway or still can't afford to purchase it. Rent, put your money away. Or rent a place and in your deal, have 20% of your monthly rent 'going to purchase' if you decide to purchase.

Dear Anteater:

Your buyer's Reatlor can easily do this for you. They can provide you with a search that will be updated daily. THe MLS has both of these search options available.

There is no cost for a buyer to use a Realtor.

Many Realtors can let you search the MLS on your own if you wish.

You are looking for an extremely rare category.  On Zillow, try using the keywords section as an extra filter.
