Rent to Own Homes in Aliso Viejo
Buying vs. Rent to Own Homes
There are a few situations in which rent to own makes sense when you have the option to purchase. A good situation to rent to own is when you’re not sure about a home you’re looking at buying, and you want to test it out for a bit before making a final decision. This way, you have less money on the line if you change your mind.
Renting to own is also a good option if you’re close to qualifying for financing, but you need a little bit more time to get there.
Renting to own doesn’t trap you in a lease like normal renting does – you can buy the home whenever you’re ready. That’s why it’s the good option if you almost have a large enough down payment, if your credit score is close to where you need it to be or if you just need a little more time at your job to build your job history. It also works when you’re waiting for your old home to sell so that you have the cash to purchase your new home.
Rent to Own Realtors
Realtors have more experience with closings and real estate contracts than the typical buyer or seller, but not many of them want to work with rent to own deals. A commission from the sale of a home is much larger than the commission a realtor will receive from rent for the first few years of a lease-option deal.
Instead, visit title companies to make sure the property is eligible for rent to own, consult with a lawyer to ensure that the contract benefits you and meet with a mortgage broker to find out when the buyer will be ready to close on the home.
About Our Listings
Rent to Own Labs offers more than free listings for rent to buy houses.
Our website also includes real estate owned properties, which are bank-owned foreclosed homes that didn’t sell at auction. You can buy these types of properties for cheap prices because the bank isn’t in the business of real estate; it’s just looking to get rid of the condo, townhouse, etc. that it has on the book.
Sellers directly list rent to own by owner apartments and houses as lease-option or lease-purchase programs with no credit check. On lease to purchase contracts, the buyer is contractually obligated to buy the home, and on lease to own contracts, the buyer is financially motivated. It doesn’t matter to the seller if you have a bad credit score because they know you have a lot at risk if you don’t buy the home you’re renting to own.
