How do I place a rent-to-own offer on a house For Sale By Owner?


I’m looking to rent-to-own a house that is FSBO. In their online listing they said they are willing to do rent-to-own. I would simply like an answer to my question not a bunch of information about rent-to-own vs. buying a home. I am in Michigan if that helps.
