Buying vs. Rent to Own Homes
Renting to own a home and buying a house have the same steps, just on different timetables.
When you buy a house, you either pay with cash or you make monthly payments to a mortgage or some other kind of financing option for a set time frame.
When you rent to own a home you pay an option fee, which is later credited toward the purchase of the home, and then you make monthly rent payments until you’re sure you want to buy this house and you can secure financing. Then, you do the same things you would if you were buying a house – just make sure you do it before the end of the lease term so that you don’t lose any of the money you’ve negotiated.
When you can choose between the two, buying might be the right option because your monthly payments will go towards equity in a home as opposed to someone else’s pocket. However, lease-options get you to the same place with a little more time.
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
Listing properties for traditional sale eliminates a big chunk of the buyer market. People with bad credit are left out of the traditional home buying process. Nonetheless, buyers who don’t qualify for mortgages are still in the market for apartments and houses.
Rent to own by owner programs with no credit check are an easy way for a seller to start earning money from their townhouse or condo in a market that isn’t viable, which appeals to new groups of buyers.
Through rent to buy and lease to purchase, sellers rent a property to potential buyers for a set lease term. During which, the seller earns profit through the rent buyers pay as a tenants. At the end of the lease, the buyer has the option to buy the property, or if they signed a lease-purchase agreement, they must buy it.
With a little patience, sellers can make rent money and the true value of their home from its eventual sale. Which is better than selling the home cheap and competing with bank-owned foreclosed homes that sell for less than market value.
