Rent to Own Homes in Bishopville
Buying vs. Rent to Own Homes
To buy a house, you (1) look at the homes available for purchase, (2) pick the house you want, (3) pay the seller the cost of the home and (4) you get the house. That’s the basic gist of the traditional home buying process.
All the steps of the traditional home buying process are present in the rent to own process. The difference is that renting to own has an additional step between Step 2 and Step 3. Step 2.5 is to rent the home for a maximum of three years until you are ready to continue to Step 3.
During Step 2.5, you’re working on improving your credit score, building a steady job history and saving up a down payment so that you can qualify for financing. Once you have financing, you can move on to Step 3.
Rent to own is a good way to prepare for buying a property. Once you do buy, you won’t have to spend money on rent any longer. So, the sooner you can buy, the better.
Rent to Own Realtors
Realtors are highly skilled at informing potential buyers and prospective sellers about rent to own. A realtor can help find the second half of the deal you have been searching for.
Unfortunately, not many realtors are interested in rent to own because there isn’t a lot of money for them in the process. In the past, that would constitute a serious roadblock to rent to own; however, there are plenty of websites available for buyers and sellers to find each other.
Completing your rent to own deal without a realtor could save the seller a lot of money on commission. That gives the seller some wiggle room on the sale price, which attracts even more buyers.
About Our Listings
Financially, buying apartments, houses or any other types of properties makes sense when compared to renting. You're paying roughly the same amount per month for your mortgage that you would to rent the same type of home. However, there are obstacles that make that process difficult to attain, like minimum down payments and bad credit. Those barriers prevent banks from ending up having to sell foreclosed homes.
Nonetheless, those barriers shouldn’t stop you from owning your own condo or townhouse. Through rent to buy and lease to purchase programs with no credit check, you could start working toward owning a house.
