Rent to Own Homes in Thornton, CO

Thornton is technically a suburb of Denver--Colorado's capital city. Thornton was just a bunch of farmland until 1953, when the town was turned into the first fully planned community in Adams County. Thornton drew people because it offered full municipal services from a single tax levy. Thornton is a haven for families because it offers great suburban living and tons of outdoor activities. It has over 80 parks and access to some of the best mountains and hiking in the entire country.

Thornton, CO is a great place for affordable rent-to-own homes! With a median household income of over $80,732 and a median rent of $1,485, the Thornton, CO 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 Thornton, CO. 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.
