    DC? I highly doubt it. DC always has been and always will be an expensive market because of the federal government.

    My feeling is that rent to own is absurd. You need the interest deduction. Some sellers will finance a mortgage, but you need excellent credit and a solid income.

    Is there a reason you can't get a mortgage?

    If you are able... there are so many more possibilities because most people selling a property would rather be paid NOW for it rather than carry back the mortgage for a long period. And the risk that goes with it if you do not maintain the property.

    I think you do better managing your own affairs, and getting prequalified for a mortgage by using qualified people, like a good broker, or realtor, as a guide through the pitfalls of leasing/renting to own. Preapproval is what gives you leverage and much more options. It starts with understanding your own FREE credit reports.
