Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with your question today. I am reviewing it, please give me a moment.
Have you approached the seller to see if you could rent first?
Steps in theory you would rent. You would need a contract saying you have the OPTION to buy once the fixed period has expired.
You could put an increased offer but prices may change in 6 or 12 months.
You can say for example, that you would offer a % in the contract over the market price, or a fixed sum.
That should do it for you.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today, please?
If not, I would appreciate a 5-star rating for my answer, by clicking the button at the top of the screen. I am not paid for my time unless you rate. If you need anything further I am available for a follow up at no extra cost.
