Is it possible to purchase a home that is listed for rent?The property I like is listed for rent and I'm guessing it's because the owner couldn't sell. Is it possible to express my interest in buying to the owner through the property management company they are working with? Also if the property is currently occupied by a tenant is there a way to let the owner know that I'll wait until the lease is over and then purchase it from them? I know it wouldn't be too wise to wait around a whole year for one property that the owner may not want to sell...but if it's discussed ahead of time is there a chance this could happen because I really love the property?October 17 2013 - Columbia00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
