I saw a place I really like and want to live in as my primary residence for a while. I don’t want to put 20% down, though. Is there any way for me to get this place if the current owner has it rented out until August 2022 without buying it as investment property?

Pay out the renter. Cash for keys. Seller also has to agree with the terms and has to be willing to sell at a price.

What do you mean has to be willing to sell at a price?
