Frequently Asked Questions

General questions about our company, service, and properties we offer on this website: 

 

What does Rent to Own actually mean? 

In most cases, a rent to own agreement is a contract on a property that works like a lease and leads to a purchase. It’s often called a lease with an option – or a lease/option agreement for short.

The lease portion is a standard rental agreement that includes monthly rent and other typical terms.

The option in the contract gives you the right to purchase the property after a set time period – usually around 3 years. This gives you the ability to save money towards a down payment, repair credit, increase your income, or otherwise improve your ability to qualify for a mortgage.

Most of the time people use a traditional mortgage loan to purchase the property prior to the expiration of the option period, but there are other options if your financial situation has unique needs.

We help lots of folks like you to purchase the home of their dreams.

 

What is the Rent to Own process?

The rent to own process is actually pretty simple.

Once you’ve seen one of our fantastic properties, we’ll give you an application to fill out. Don’t worry – we help people with all kinds of credit and financial situations, and if you can afford the property, we can probably help you to own it.

After you’re approved to rent the property, simply just sign the lease, pay the option fee and first month’s rent – then you move on in!

Your lease/option agreement (also known as the rent to own contract) will spell out the length of time that you have to complete the purchase of the property – typically 3 years, but in certain circumstances we may extend your option if you need more time.

The purchase of your home usually takes place through a traditional mortgage loan, but there are other ways to complete the purchase, depending on your finances.

That’s the process!

Once you’ve completed your mortgage, you’re done – now you own your home!

Do appliances or furniture come with a rent-to-own home?

Most of the time, furniture isn’t included with a lease/option purchase.

Generally, the basic appliances are there – like a refrigerator, stove, oven, and sometimes extras, like a dishwasher, a washer and a dryer. Parts of a property that are installed or attached – like the heating system and air conditioning – are definitely included.

Sometimes, we’ll offer a property that includes some furnishings. Most buyers want to bring their own stuff with them from their previous home, and that’s why furniture usually is not included.

What if my credit is blemished? Can I still get a rent-to-own home?

Yes you can! Many people with less than perfect credit can still get a rent-to-own home.

Every situation is different, but we specialize in helping people who have been through tough circumstances (or just made mistakes in the past) to repair their credit and get started on the path to a great financial future.

Even if your credit is not perfect, you can still own a property!

One of the major benefits of a rent-to-own scenario is that it gives you time to repair your credit before you purchase your home. You’ll enjoy many of the benefits of home ownership while you’re rebuilding your credit and saving money towards a down payment.

What are the benefits of a rent to own home?

There are a lot of benefits of a rent to own agreement!

In the Perkasie and Surrounding Areas area, lots of smart people are using rent to own agreements as a way to get the home of their dreams without having to qualify for a bank loan right away.

In the past few years, banks have been very tight on their lending criteria. Most people who use a rent to own agreement want a few years to get ready to qualify.

Here are a few more reasons to use a rent-to-own agreement:

  • Try before you buy! You get to live in your rented home before you actually purchase it, allowing you to make sure it’s actually your dream home. If you don’t like the house, you don’t have to complete the purchase.
  • Own without great credit or a big down payment. You can start feeling like a homeowner right away while saving up and improving your credit.
  • Privacy. You’re not listed as the purchaser on any public records until the closing takes place, giving you years of privacy.
  • Profit from home appreciation right away. Often, homes in Perkasie and Surrounding Areas are worth more on the day of the purchase than the price that you’re paying! This can be huge money.
  • Move in fast. Since you don’t have to wait for a mortgage, you can often move in right away – and get started living a new life in the home of your dreams!

So don’t wait! Get started now by filling out our form.

Is there a down payment on a rent to own home?

Not right away!

You don’t have to have a down payment until your purchase is complete (typically 3 years). An option fee is all that is needed to get started!

Having some time to save up for your down payment may be your ticket to financial freedom to owning a home in Perkasie and Surrounding Areas
