Rent to own Homes in Maryland

Home to our nation's capital, Washington DC, Maryland, is home to history and culture. With 2.5 million acres of forest, Maryland is also home to some of the most densely populated states in the country. The Chesapeake Bay is just one of 100 estuaries in the state and splits Maryland into two.

Large employers like Marriot, Lockheed Martin, and GEICO mean that Maryland is not only the seat of politics but also a place where people gravitate from all over to work and grow their families. Home of Edgar Allen Poe, The Baltimore Ravens, and a rich cultural and literary history, Maryland is a small state with big culture.

Maryland is a great place for affordable rent-to-own homes! With a median household income of over $87,063 and a median rent of $1,415, the Maryland 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 Maryland. 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.

Baltimore is a short train ride away from Washington, D.C. With over 600,000 residents across 81 square miles, the city built its shipbuilding, steel, and other industries for hundreds of years around Inner Harbor, where you'll currently find cruises, an aquarium, and several other tourist attractions. More than 26 million people visit Baltimore every year.

Annapolis was the capital of the United States from Nov. 26, 1783, until June 3, 1784, and is currently the capital of Maryland. This 7-square-mile city with 39,000 residents is famously known for being the home of the United States Naval Academy. St. John's College, also located in Annapolis, was founded in 1784 and merged with King William's School, which was founded in 1696. It is one of the oldest colleges in the country. The city is part of the Washington Metro area, with plenty of available jobs and housing opportunities.

Silver Spring, the home of the Food and Drug Administration's headquarters and the American Film Institute, has a vibrant downtown and is less than 6 miles from Washington, D.C., and all of its attractions. It has urban and rural areas, as well as several swaths of open space, including Brookside Gardens, where you'll find 50 acres of tranquil walking trails and over 20,000 plants.
