Rent to Own Homes in Dallas, TX

Dallas is a bit of a late bloomer. In 1841, John Neely Bryan became the first person to settle in the area. Its incorporation as a city came in 1860 when it had a mere 2,000 residents. Then along came the Houston and Texas Central Railroad, the Second Industrial Revolution, and the rest is history. Dallas now has the ninth-largest population in the United States with 1,343,573 residents, and it continues to grow. It had a population increase of 12.2% between 2010 and 2019, and for good reason.

The "Big D" has an excellent economy. It ranked second on Forbes' 2019 list of best places for business and careers. In 2018, the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area had a Gross Domestic Product of $513 billion for the sixth-largest economy in the United States. Exxon Mobil, Energy Transfer, American Airlines, Kimberly-Clark, Texas Instruments, J.C. Penney, and Alliance Data Systems are some of the two dozen Fortune 500 companies with headquarters in the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area. As the economy continues to grow, so does its population.

Dallas, TX is a great place for affordable rent-to-own homes! With a median household income of over $54,747 and a median rent of $1,111, the Dallas, 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 Dallas, 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.
