Rent to Own Homes in Castle Rock
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
Working with a realtor doesn’t guarantee that you will successfully complete a rent to own deal, but their knowledge and expertise can make a big difference in your success rate.
Unfortunately, not many realtors will want to work with you on a rent to own deal. There isn’t a lot of profit for a realtor in rent to own deals.
So, you’ll need to find others with the knowledge and expertise you are looking for to ensure a successful lease-option experience. Consider consulting with a realtor, a title company and a mortgage officer instead. These professionals are better than a realtor because they are experts in their respective fields, as opposed to realtors who know a good deal about each of those rent to own factors.
About Our Listings

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.
