Rent to Own Homes in Kewanee
Buying vs. Rent to Own Homes
Rent to own is a great option for people who want to buy a house, but are still working on getting the financing for it. People who are anywhere between a few months and three years away from qualifying for financing should consider rent to own.
Unlike renting, you don’t have to keep making rent payments for the full lease term. Once you’re able to close, you have the right to do that.
Rent to own is very similar to buying, in that buying is the end result of a successful rent to own deal.
The primary difference between the two is that rent to own takes longer than buying, which is the advantage of rent to own. It gives buyers time to get their finances in order to buy a home while not getting trapped into a lease term.
Rent to Own Realtors
An agent serves as a protection for both the buyer and the seller. They can save the buyer and seller a lot of time and money, which could offset the realtor’s commission.
However, not many realtors are interested in helping with lease-options. They make a minimal profit off of the lease portion of the deal, and the profit from the purchase is several years down the line and isn’t guaranteed.
Instead, protect yourself by communicating with lawyers, title agents and mortgage lenders to ensure that your rent to own deal works smoothly.
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.
