Rent to own Homes in Florida

Florida is known as the Sunshine State for an excellent reason. With over 663 miles of beaches and home to major attractions like Disney World and Universal Studios, Florida's economy and things bring smiles to many faces! With over $1 trillion in the gross domestic product, about 21.5 million people call Florida home.

With a booming tourist economy and plenty of large businesses with open opportunities, Florida might be just the perfect place to boost your career, find your next home, and get the perfect tan.

Florida is a great place for affordable rent-to-own homes! With a median household income of over $57,703 and a median rent of $1,218, the Florida 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 Florida. 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.

Popular Florida Cities

Miami Beach - Located between the Atlantic Ocean and Biscayne Bay, this resort town is a great destination for people who need to get away from everyday life while still living in a fully functioning city. Enjoy the beachfront hotels along Collins Avenue, or walk through the residential neighborhoods with orange Spanish-roofed homes and light-colored stucco siding. For nightlife, you can check out spots like the Fontainebleau Hotel, where there's always a party going on; visit South Beach and its many artsy shops, restaurants, and bars; or take a leisurely stroll down the boardwalk until you're ready to call it a night. It sounds more like a vacation spot than a place to call home, but that's the reality for people who live in Miami Beach.

Orlando - More than 285,000 residents call this city home. Although it's located a little more inland than the coastal towns of Florida, world-famous attractions such as Walt Disney World, Seaworld, Legoland, and Universal Studios attract more than 75 million visitors every year. Tourists keep the local economy alive by spending money at theme parks, local shops and restaurants, and hotels, as well as transportation, which stimulates the rest of the economy. The unemployment rate as of December 2019 was a low 2.5 percent, compared to the national average of 3.4 percent.

Jacksonville - Jacksonville is the most populous city in Florida, with more than 900,000 year-round residents. Residents of many ethnicities and nationalities occupy the city, which has urban, suburban, and beach-town living accommodations. The city also has an international airport for people who need to travel long distances, and it has a monorail, trolley, bus system, taxis, water taxis, and a skyway to help residents beat traffic around town.

Popular Attractions in Florida

  1. If you want to bring out the child in you, visit one of Orlando's iconic theme parks. While you're there, check out Icon Park's new 450-foot-high StarFlyer, which moves up and down while spinning at speeds of up to 60 miles per hour. When you're done, there's no shortage of trails, sights, and restaurants to enjoy as you unwind from an exhilarating day.
  2. For an amazing wildlife adventure, visit the Everglades National Park. The country's most extensive subtropical preserve serves as a natural habitat for endangered species such as the Florida panther, the manatee, and the American crocodile. Take guided walking or boat tours to view the many types of amphibians, reptiles, and mammals that live in this 1.5-million-acre area of wetlands.
  3. Finally, if you like being near the water, the Florida Keys is the perfect place for you. Any of the main islands of this famous archipelago will have plenty for you to do. From snorkeling to scuba diving, water sports, boating, and underwater tours, by the time you're done, you'll feel like a full-fledged Aquarian, ready for days on end of sand in your toes and fun adventures in the sun-something the state of Florida has in spades!

Florida Frequently Asked Questions

The average home rent in Florida is $1,021 for a 2-bedroom home.

Currently, the most affordable cities in which to rent are Jacksonville, Saint Petersburg, Cape Coral, Palm Bay, Palm Coast, Homosassa Springs, New Port Richey, Dade City, Bartow and Kissimmee.

Typically, landlords look for a credit score of 600 or higher, but at 600 an elevated deposit is likely to still be required. However, a rent-to-own home may be a good option if a credit score is below 600 as the contract details are between the homeowner and the renter and can be adjusted if agreeable to both parties. When you rent-to-own a home it gives time for the renter to improve their credit score to enable them to purchase the home at the end of the lease agreement.

As of late summer 2021, the median home price increased by ~32%. This is the largest price jump since the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak in spring of 2020.
