Rent to Own Homes in Ridgecrest, CA

Ridgecrest is a small but growing town nestled between national forests and the desert. The slow pace afforded by life here is a natural complement to the bustle of life in Los Angeles and Las Vegas, both of which are a few hours' drive away. This desert city offers dining, plenty of real estate, and shopping. In fact, the city considers itself the shopping and business hub of the entire county.

Ridgecrest, CA is a great place for affordable rent-to-own homes! With a median household income of over $71,774 and a median rent of $928, the Ridgecrest, CA 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 Ridgecrest, CA. 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.
