Top Reasons Why Oklahoma is a perfect place to buy a Rent to Own
It doesn't get any better than here! When Money Magazine was putting together its list of America's best cities to live, it was no surprise that Oklahoma City was among the best of the best. As a matter of fact, Oklahoma's unemployment rate is only 4.9%, compared to the national average of 7.5%. Forbes Magazine has ranked both Oklahoma City and Tulsa as having strong "economic fundamentals" and the state's housing market that has been unusually steady, even during recent turbulent years.
Fresh air! According to the EPA, Oklahoma has some of the cleanest air in the country. Furthermore, Oklahoma City is the largest city to meet the EPA's stringent clean air standards. No matter where you live in the state, you can rest easy knowing your lungs are having a good time.
Come see where the bison roam! Encompassing over 59,000 acres of mountain ranges and prairies, the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge is the home of free roaming American bison herds and Texas Longhorn cattle, as well as elusive prairie dogs and bobcats.

The seasons actually change! There are actually four distinct seasons in Oklahoma. Sure Oklahoma might have some extreme weather during tornado season, but it also has the benefit of a true winter, blossoming spring, warm summer, and gorgeous fall.
Ride on Route 66! There are more than 400 miles of prime cruising lanes along the Oklahoma stretch of Route 66. On this stretch of highway, you'll find old-fashioned diners, small town life at its finest, and all sorts of weird and wild attractions. Be sure to stop and see the Old Round Barn in Arcadia or the Blue Whale water slide in Catoosa.
Boomer Sooner! The state of Oklahoma has a long, rich history of producing great sports teams. The University of Oklahoma Sooners football team have the most wins and the best win percentage in all of college football over the last 75 years, and the Oklahoma State Cowboys have made it into a bowl game for five of the last six years and were even ranked No. 1 in the country in 2011. Add to the mix the NBA's Oklahoma City Thunder, one of the top teams in the league, and you've got a sporting paradise on your hands.
The art scene is thriving! Oklahoma isn't all about the outdoors; there is a ton of culture here. Sure, there's the National Cowboy & Western Museum, but also visit the Oklahoma City Museum of Art and the Oklahoma City National Museum to see some of the state's rich cultural legacy.
Beautiful waterfalls! Natural Falls State Park will have you in awe of its sheer beauty. This retreat in northern Oklahoma offers a 77-foot waterfall and an opportunity to hike down the trail into the area around the basin. Surrounded by a variety of native plants and flowering trees, the most popular activities at Natural Falls are hiking and camping.
Eat at the Pig Stand! The fine cities of Shawnee, Moore and Norman are home to a true Oklahoma tradition that dates back a generation. We're talking about Van's Pig Stand. Regardless of which Pig Stand you choose, what awaits you is some of the most perfectly smoked, mouthwatering barbecue you've ever tasted. Be sure to order the ribs and foot long curly fries and you'll be telling your friends another reason you love the location of your new rental house in the great state of Oklahoma.
The State Fair is amazing! From the Swampmaster Gator show and Zoppe Italian Family Circus to the Barrel Racing Clinic and Disney on Ice events, the Oklahoma State Fair is an end of summer tradition that shouldn't be missed. Everything from live music to livestock can be found during these ten days in September.
Everything is bigger! Texas isn't the only place in the U.S. where things are bigger. Some of that's spilled over into Oklahoma, where they lay claim to a five-story Chihuly sculpture at the Oklahoma Museum of Art, as well as the world's second largest McDonald's. If you want to go really big, check the view from the highest point of The Wildcat roller coaster at renowned Frontier City.
It's the birthplace of big stars! Some big names have come from Oklahoma, like platinum artist Garth Brooks, who is from Yukon; tabloid magnet and acclaimed actor Brad Pitt, who hails from Shawnee; and the original tough guy Chuck Norris, who came from Ryan. Imagine telling everyone you know that you bought a rent to own home in the same town that these guys are from!
