Rent to Own Homes in Mount Holly
Buying vs. Rent to Own Homes
Rent to own gives you anywhere between a few months and three years time to prepare for buying a home. It’s more costly than buying outright because you’ll be paying rent to the owner instead of building equity by paying off the mortgage; but, it’s much better than renting because you have the option to buy and stop the rent payment process whenever you’re ready.
Lease-options help set you up for a home purchase in the not-so-distant future.
That’s not to say that because you aren’t ready to buy you should rent to own. If you need more than three years before you’re ready to purchase a home, you shouldn’t rent to own. Instead, you should wait until you’re at least less than three years away from qualifying to buy a home before signing your lease-option because, if the lease term ends and you’re not ready to buy, you’ll lose the money you invested in an option fee and any other money you’ve negotiated from the seller.
Rent to Own Realtors
You can plan a party without an event planner, you can go swimming without a lifeguard, and you can rent to own without a realtor.
That’s important because there isn’t as much money for realtors in rent to own deals as in traditional sales. Therefore, finding a realtor to help you is rare.
While the listed activities might be easier with a professional, they’re all possible without one. To successfully rent to own without a realtor learn all you can about it.
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.
