How the Rent-To-Own Program works:
Our Rent To Own program is geared to those who
are serious about wanting to own their home but just need a little time to get their financial ducks in a row. Our program lets you enjoy the perks of home ownership while rebuilding your credit or resolving problems that would prohibit you from buying
a home otherwise. The main advantages of buying a home through our Rent-To-Own plan are:
1. You are guaranteed and locked into a sales price on the front end of your option. You know from the beginning what the sales price will be at the
end of the purchase option and you don't have to worry about the price changing and going up.
2. You will receive the appreciation gained by rising property values during your option term.
3.Not only will you receive the benefits
of rising property values, but you will also be earning equity every month from the monthly equity credit, usually it's $100/month.
4. You don't have to hassle with property taxes or house insurance during the option term.
are many other non-monetary advantages such having a place to call home and establishing roots.
6. You won't have to move every year or 2 because your lease is up. I hate to move.
The lease/purchase term is normally for 2 years
because that seems to work best for most people. The lease/purchase option guarantees the purchase price any time during the term of the lease/purchase agreement. You will receive a $100/month credit for every month during the option term that will
be applied back toward the purchase price when you purchase your home. There is a down payment required upon move-in, usually between $2,900 and $5,900, depending upon the house. This down payment will also be credited back toward the purchase
price of the house when you purchase it. At the end of the lease/option term, you will have automatically have built up a down payment equal to your down payment plus the $100 monthly accrual.
For Example: If your monthly rent is $1,200 with a 2
year lease/purchase agreement and you put $3,900 down, at the end of the 2 years you will have a down payment of $6,300 -$3,900 + $2,400 ($100/month X 24 months)
