Hi,

I just wanted to add my opinion about rent to own homes. Rent to own usually favors the owner. First of all, there are few homes even listed as rent to owns, so your selection is limited. Also you will be expected to pay over and above the usual rent. Remember all that money will be forfeited if you do not buy the home for any reason (if you can't buy at the end of the lease term because let's say you can't qualify for a mortgage, etc. you lose all of that money!) 
I would say you should rent while you're working on raising your credit score/saving up for a down payment and then buy when you are ready. 
 
Good luck!
