Potential to Own With Any Credit:
Whether you've had late payments, a bankruptcy or simply haven't had enough time to build up your credit, a Rent To Own home may enable you to build equity and repair credit while renting to own your home.
Seller Benefits of Rent to Own
If your buyer should fail to procure a mortgage loan, or waive the purchase option at the maturity of the lease term, you retain the deposit, rent, an all accumulated equity.
Rent to own landlords typically collect a rental rate premium in exchange for offering a purchase option.
Avoid short-term capital gains with a "fix and flip" strategy by renting to own the property to a tenant, just be sure the lease extends more than a year from your date of purchase.
Your tenant has a large personal equity stake in the home you are selling, and as a result will treat your property just like his own.
No Traditional Real Estate Transaction Fees:
Avoid all real estate commissions by selling your home to your tenant without using an agent.
