Rent to own Homes in Fort Lauderdale, FL

When you think about Fort Lauderdale and finding a rent to own home, what first comes to mind is typically either the city's reputation for holding some of the world's wildest beach parties or the fact that this ocean side mecca is home to some of the most impressive yachts and sailing you can find. Sure, the beachfront area and iconic downtown attract the masses, but this city has so much more to offer. From its tranquil neighborhoods and Intracoastal Waterway to offering you the ability to step out your backdoor and onto your boat, Fort Lauderdale is one of the most unique places you can live.

Fort Lauderdale, FL is a great place for affordable rent-to-own homes! With a median household income of over $64,313 and a median rent of $1,353, the Fort Lauderdale, FL 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 Fort Lauderdale, FL. 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.
