Rent to own Homes in Lincoln, NE

Lincoln, once known as Lancaster, became the state capital of Nebraska in 1867 and is the second-biggest city in the state. As such, Lincoln is the center for education, state governance, and transportation for the region, but has managed to maintain a small-town feel despite its importance and relatively large population of over 250,000. It is also a college city and has attracted people of all backgrounds from around the world over the last few decades, giving it a diverse and multicultural feel.

Lincoln, NE is a great place for affordable rent-to-own homes! With a median household income of over $60,063 and a median rent of $871, the Lincoln, NE 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 Lincoln, NE. 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.
