So my DH and I went and looked at this beautiful 5 bedroom 3 bath house for 150k. The people that own the house want to do a rent to own. That works great for us because our credit sucks. We are looking at a loan payment of about 600.00 permonth. The house works great for our 5 person family. I saw the houes and fell inlove. The downside of my dream house is that the roof needs redone. I guess it got tornado damnage last summer. The house went into forecloser and it went to a trustees sale and ti didn't sell. My understanding is with the housing market the way it is. The morage comany told the told the owners to get a modified home loan that's in the works. As for the roof I'm not 100 percent sure what happened to insuance check. DH told me to tell them we don't want the houes unless the roof gets fixed. I want that house so so so bad I'm trying to figure out how to get the roof fixed on our dime. That makes sense to me because we are buying the house. Can someone please please help me to figure out what to do. I so want this houes, but I want DH to want the houes too. A little background on the place we live now. We pay 500.00 per month for a 2 bedroom house. It's falling apart. The land lords told us they'd fix the falling apart bathroom when we got rent paid up today. That was 2 months ago and yet nothing. Our currant houes is so small that it's starting to drive me insance.
