We recently got a call from an upset seller requesting that the lockbox be removed from her listing, which had just gone under agreement for sale.  Of course, we did so immediately.  But why was she so concerned?  Because - someone had put an ad on Craig's List advertising her home for rent! 
Potential renters called us requesting information on the ad, and one young woman actually stopped by the house, asking about the rental.  This young woman was thoughtful enough to provide our seller with an email she had received when she responded to the Craig's List rental ad.  It … (13 comments)

lancaster pa homes for sale: Lease With Option to Purchase - 02/09/09 12:40 AM
In today's uncertain economy, credit for traditional mortgages may be more difficult to obtain for buyers, and sellers may have more difficulty finding qualified buyers.  In the early 1980s there were similar conditions, caused not by a lack of credit but by extremely high interest rates.  The lack of mortgages from traditional institutions forced sellers to come up with creative solutions to enable buyers to purchase their properties.
