I'm a retired realtor and also have knowledge of horses. I have several MAJOR concerns with what you wrote. Please read the following issues:

1. I know to care for horses is very expensive. If you own a horse, is it possible to use your horse as a business strategy to make money? In your situation, if you don't have enough cash saved and you are struggling financially, how can you spend money on vet care, feeding and other expenses on a horse? If your horse earned some money, would this help reduce your expenses?

2. Lease To Own or Rent To Own does not work the way you think. The person buying the property on your behalf and allowing you to live there will charge you additional rent and ask for a down payment. You will need to sign a contract and the contract states the person who bought the house will keep all of your money if you cannot qualify to buy it at a later time. You need to know that the person who buys the home will want to make a profit. The only way to make a profit is have you pay extra money which you do not get back. You will lose thousands of dollars doing this.

3. You need to sacrifice something and make a decision. Can you afford to keep your horse? It's not about buying this house. You need to analyze your financial situation. What is keeping you from saving more money and earning more income?

I think its better to wait, the big reason is income should be first spending second.most people do not have the income to save for down payments due to high rent and cost of living,even if you saved the down payment your property taxes will be higher,if you are realy thinking to buy now use minimum down just incase if the market turns around and go's south you don't loose your life savings. ... more

You need to be careful in purchasing vacation rentals in Las Vegas. Short term rentals are against the law in the unincorporated area of Clark County (anywhere South of Sahara) Penalties begin at $1000 per day and may include up to 6 months in jail.
In the city of Las Vegas, vacation rentals are monitored. You need to apply for a permit to rent your property as a vacation rental. Approval can take up to one year as the area is taken into consideration and neighboring residents are contacted as to whether they have objections to short term rental activity in their neighborhood.

Kathy Burgreen answered:
You need to read your contract. Did you have a financing contingency? If you have a financing contingency and it did not expire, you should get your deposit back. If the financing contingency expired or you do not have one, well, sorry but you lost the deposit.

This is why it is critical that buyers get pre approved first BEFORE signing a purchase contract. Obviously, you did things backwards.

Scott Godzyk answered:
Most contracts state that it is binding to estates, heirs etc, so you need to check the wording. In addition the listing agent and or closer can get a power of attorney for the seller. The however is, if the seller can not complete repairs or such, you may need to work out a credit instead. Either way for legal matters such as this, a lawyer is the only one who can advise you given your states laws and your contract wording. It is sad to hear anyones health decline. ... more
