Buying vs. Rent to Own Homes
Renting to own a home is like a test drive for buying a house. It’s comparable to the car dealership letting you drive out of the lot with the car that you want (after you pay a small option fee) and telling you to come back when you have the money to pay the full price of it, as long as it is within the lease term. Then you make monthly lease payments until you’re ready to buy it.
You should lease-option when you’re close to getting financing for the home you’re looking to purchase, but need a bit more time (1-3 years) before you’re ready. And if you’re unsure about the house, you have more time to consider it from a more personal perspective.
Similarly to test driving a car, once you’re sure that this is the house you want and you have the money to purchase it, you should buy it as soon as possible. There’s no sense in paying rent money for longer than you need to. Rent to own also gives you the flexibility to close on a home whenever you’re ready to. It’s a mix of the best parts of renting and buying.
Rent to Own Realtors
Rent to own is beneficial to both buyers and sellers, but that’s not common knowledge. A lot of people look to realtors as a credible source of information for their counterpart in a rent to own deal about the benefits of the program.
However, you likely won’t find a realtor who is interested in helping you. There’s not a lot of profit for realtors in rent to own deals.
Instead, you’ll have to become a credible expert on the process yourself. Honestly, that’s not a bad thing. It’s better that you know everything you need to about the process you’re investing so much time and money into.
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.
