Rent to Own Homes in Corpus Christi, TX

Corpus Christi feels like a small town, but with a population of 312,195 people, it is anything but small. Founded by Colonel Henry Lawrence Kinney in 1839, Corpus Christi began as a small trading post, selling supplies to a Mexican Revolutionary army that had an encampment close by. From those humble beginnings, the city has slowly grown over the past 150 years to enjoy a thriving economy and become a tourist destination. Connected by a series of bridges, the city is laid out in an organic fashion that follows the coastline and connects one island or inlet to the next. One of the prettiest drives in the country is along Ocean Drive, a street that follows Corpus Christi Bay from downtown in a horseshoe fashion and out to Texas A&M University, which sits close to the Naval Air Station. This particular drive makes a stunningly beautiful commute for many locals each and every day.

Corpus Christi, TX is a great place for affordable rent-to-own homes! With a median household income of over $57,387 and a median rent of $1,055, the Corpus Christi, TX 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 Corpus Christi, TX. 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.
