Rent to Own Homes in Selma, CA

Selma, California, in Fresno County, was founded in 1893, as the Central Pacific Railroad brought settlers to the area. Legend has it that the city was named for the beautiful Selma Gruenberg Lewis, with whom Governor Leland Stanford was enamored. The area's fertile lands lend themselves well to fruit farming, especially grape farming. Ninety percent of U.S. raisins are produced within 8 miles of Selma, earning it the title of Raisin Capital of the World.

Selma, CA is a great place for affordable rent-to-own homes! With a median household income of over $42,059 and a median rent of $934, the Selma, 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 Selma, 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.
