The landlord wanted to sell the house. He told me to tell the tenant he had first dibs. The tenant did the smart thing. Got himself a loan and bought the place. He knew his new rent in a new place was going to be the same if not MORE than the mortgage payments.

I told him that the owner was willing to wait for him. It was a struggle to get him approved. Maan, he just barely qualified for the loan.
In the end everyone came out happy.

Are you renting? Are you living in a house? My suggestion is to make a plan. Call me to see if you can buy a house now, in a month, three months or six months down the line. It starts with deciding to make a plan. Don’t wait for the owner to put the house on the market. Get pre-approved and proposition the landlord, you know?
