The Benefits of Rent to Own Homes
For the renter/buyer
- Like what was previously stated, you won’t have to purchase the home first to find out what it would be like to live in it. Renting it first will help you really figure out if it is the home for you.
- As long as you are in the house, you are the priority buyer should you decide to make an offer; other buyers will not be a cause for concern.
- The buyer won’t pressure you into buying right this minute; you can take your time (or at least spend the entire lease term) thinking about it.
- There are certain arrangements where some of the rent money goes directly to the house’s equity. This money will also be subtracted to the down payment for the house if you decide to buy it.
- While you are renting, you can take the time to repair your credit record so that you will be approved for a loan in the future.
For the landlord/seller
- Even if your house hasn’t been sold yet, you’re already gaining profit from it, and you stand the chance to get more should the renter make the decision to purchase it.
- You won’t have to worry the way that a landlord does about the condition of the house; since the tenants have a choice to buy the home, they will make sure that it is in the best condition.
- When your renter gets a first-hand experience of living in your home, you might stand a better chance of selling it. Even if they decide not to buy it, your house still may have gotten more attention from the visitors that they invite over during their stay.
