Rent to own Homes in Pennsylvania

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania was admitted as the second of the United States of America on December 12, 1778. From the headquarters of George Washington's army in Valley Forge during the late 1770s to the Battle of Gettysburg during the Civil War and more, an endless amount of history has taken place in this state. From sports teams to dining, recreation, and attractions, Pennsylvania has so much to offer.

It is an economic powerhouse-its Gross Domestic Product of $817 billion as of the third quarter of 2019 was ranked 6th in the nation-with plenty of room for new residents to join. Comprised of 44,742 square miles, approximately 12.8 million people reside in the "Keystone State." Pennsylvania conveniently abuts the U.S. states of New York, New Jersey, West Virginia, Ohio, Maryland, and Delaware, as well as the Canadian Province of Ontario. Read on to find out why you should join the ranks and find your next rent-to-own home in Pennsylvania.

Pennsylvania is a great place for affordable rent-to-own homes! With a median household income of over $63,627 and a median rent of $958, the Pennsylvania 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 Pennsylvania. 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.
