You could certainly try and negotiate a longer term lease with the landlord or ask the landlord to give you the first right of refusal to purchase the home, should he decide to sell in the future, and if you really like the property and would like to stay for the long term. Affordable rental homes in decent condition are hard to come by, so depending on what your criteria is, you could keep looking if there is an inventory to choose from, otherwise you may need to settle on the best negotiation terms that will satisfy both you and the landlord for the time being, if there is a shortage of rental housing in your area.
