Frequently Asked Questions
How is Rent-To-Own Different From A Normal Rental?
Rent to Own is a way to help you get started toward BUYING your own home. You’ll get to live in your dream home while you make monthly payments, improve your credit and set yourself up to purchase your home.
What Is The Option Fee?
The option fee is a non-refundable deposit that gives you sole right to purchase the property for the duration of your lease program (typically 1-3 years).
The option fee is usually 3-5% of the purchase price.
How Is The Price Of The Home Determined?
The price of the home is typically determined by market value and comparable sales. This price is locked in at the time of signing your lease program agreement.
Can I Buy A Home With Bad Credit?
You can’t through conventional lenders, but you can with our help! Through our Lease Option Program, we can help you improve your credit over time. We are not extremely interested in your past credit status, but rather working with you to improve your credit standing now. Your ability to make reasonable monthly payments and your desire to be a homeowner are important to us.
Is The Process Complicated?
Not at all! In fact, it’s very similar to renting. Once your find your dream home, you’ll have to go through a brief application process and pay your option fee. After that, you’ll simply make monthly payments based on market rent, and work our credit improvement team to put yourself on the fast track to purchasing your dream home.
