we are gonna try the sale/lease to own/rent route on our house now. Here is the craiglist link. please check it out and/or share with anyone you think that might be interested.
I would add a picture of your kitchen and retake your bedroom picture without the exercise equipment. Can you also add a picture of a bathroom? Kitchens and bathrooms are what people really look for. Goodness gracious you have an amazing backyard!
Per my post below we are all new to the rental thing but I do know for a lease/purchase only about 10% actually go through because they are not legally bound to buy your house so what I've heard is get a large upfront sum of money as a deposit that they will lose if they break the lease/purchase agreement (this is what our realtor told us).
we are going to add more pictures tonight. i don't know if i have a pic without the equipment. i do want to take one. but instead of the elliptical, we have a desk there. so it's still got something there. also, my bedspread is nicer now. lol!
also - i don't expect someone to want to lease/purchase it. i'm just happy to get a renter in there. DH is a little delusional if you ask me, but whatever he wrote the listing.
Oh, he's also going to add the rental price to... $1200
