Rent to Own Homes in Bonita Springs
Buying vs. Rent to Own Homes
The difference between buying a home and signing up for a lease-option depends on your timeframe and how much money you spend on buying the house.
When you buy a house outright, you pay for the fair market value of the home plus interest and other fees charged by your financial lender, if you have one. You buy the property today and immediately start building equity in it.
However, when you rent to own, you won’t own the home until you close on the property, which could be as far as three years from today. You’ll also pay rent monthly, and you don’t get that money back.
There are some fees that you pay for rent to own that you’ll get back as a credit towards the price of your home, like option fees and rent credits. These count as equity on the home, but they’re not on the scale of equity you would build with a mortgage. Therefore, these don’t add anything on to the price you pay for the home the way that rent does.
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
It’s in the bank’s best interest to avoid foreclosed homes because they end up having to sell them cheap to recoup lost money. So, they try to play it safe with mortgage approvals by steering clear of people with bad credit.
That doesn’t help someone who’s working on getting their credit together to buy a condo or a townhouse. Nonetheless, rent to buy programs can help people work toward purchasing houses and apartments with no credit check.
The free listings on our site are usually rent to own by owner, so deals are more reasonable and trustworthy than big company lease to purchase properties are. Whenever you’re ready just look for lease-option or lease-purchase homes near me on the Rent to Own Labs website.
