Rent to Own Homes in Saint Louis
Buying vs. Rent to Own Homes
Renting to own a home and buying a home both have the same end goal – you own the house you’re interested in. The difference between the two is your timeline. Buying a property is a great idea if you’re sure about the property and you have financing to purchase it today.
Lease-options are a good idea when you’re having doubts about the house or if you’re not financially ready to own the house you’re looking at. They’re a good option if you almost have a high enough credit score, a steady enough job history or a big enough down payment to qualify for financing on the home, but you need some more time to qualify. Rent to own gives you time to get your affairs in order, ability to try out a house and flexibility to close on the home when you’re ready – without having to wait for the end of a lease.
To be clear, if you can buy a house today, you should do it. If you’re looking at buying within the next three years, rent to own is a good way to start the process.
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
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.
