Rent to own Homes in New York

Located on the eastern coast of the U.S., the Empire State is one of the 13 colonies that eventually became the United States. More than 19 million residents live in the state and get to enjoy professional sports teams such as the Knicks, Nets, Yankees, Mets, Rangers, Islanders, and Jets - all of them loaded with history and rivalries. Covering over 47,000 square miles, New York abuts the states of Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Jersey, Vermont, and Pennsylvania in the U.S., the provinces of Ontario and Quebec in Canada, and the Atlantic Ocean to its east.

The state's coastal location has made it a destination for immigrants from the four corners of the Earth for hundreds of years, and it continues to be a melting pot of people from varying races and nationalities. From the urban and suburban neighborhoods of the five boroughs to the mountainous areas upstate, there is a wide variety of options to choose from. So whenever you're ready to move, start building equity with a rent to own home in New York.
