HOUSTON, TX — Whether you are buying a home or prefer the option of leasing, finding the right place to live in a community as diverse as Houston can be challenging. Many who prefer leasing or who are leasing for the first time, don't always ask questions before they sign a lease, or may not even know which questions they need to ask before they sign on the dotted line. But sometimes leases can be as challenging as signing with a home lender.

Some of the questions you may forget to ask but should, include whether there is a lease to own option, if there is a penalty for early termination, how school districts are rated, the crime rate in your area, whether the property and the area is ADA accessible.

It may be best to check with a licensed realtor to answer those questions, and that's where the partners at realtor.comcan help.

They can go above and beyond to get answers to your questions, and help you find the right home in the right neighborhood, and at the right price.
