Rent to own Homes in East Haven, CT

East Haven sits on the southern side of Connecticut right on the Atlantic Ocean. Established in 1785, the city is rich in history. In 1638 the area was purchased by the Puritans from the local Quinnipiack Tribe. Made up of salt marshes, forests, lakes and ocean, East Haven is a beautiful city full of fauna, flora and scenic views.

East Haven, CT is a great place for affordable rent-to-own homes! With the current housing shortage trend it can make it harder to become a homeowner, including in East Haven, CT. 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.
