Rent to Own Homes in Gardendale, AL

This northern suburb of Birmingham claims a history that spans almost 200 years. The first farms were established by veterans of the War of 1812, and a jug factory was soon built, lending the name of "Jugtown" to the area. A petition spearheaded by schoolmarm Hettie Thomason Cargo in 1906 renamed the town Gardendale, but it wasn't until 1955 that the town was incorporated as a city. It now encompasses 57 square miles, and is home to roughly 13,000 residents.

Gardendale, AL is a great place for affordable rent-to-own homes! With a median household income of over $75,170 and a median rent of $998, the Gardendale, AL rent-to-own market is more affordable than the traditional housing market which has shown tremendous growth across the U.S. and with it, aggressive competition for home purchases. With the current housing shortage trend it can make it harder to become a homeowner, including in Gardendale, AL. This means higher than average down payments for homes and higher qualification standards for conventional home loans. With a rent-to-own property, tenants are also buyers. You can live in the house for a set amount of time before you purchase it, meaning that you get to know the house, your neighbors, and your community before making the final purchase. This enables you and your family to make the right choice based on both information and experience. Rent-to-own is also a great alternative way to get into a home if you have bad credit or don't have enough saved for a down payment.
