Lease with option to buy is normally intended to be beneficial for the owner of the property. If this is your intention, please make sure that you hire an attorney to review your contract before you sign it.

Hi Vickiana,

Steer clear of any rent-to-own homes, they are usually great for the investor/seller but not for the buyer/tenant. Take my advice and run the other way.

Now is the time to buy a property. If your credit is not fantastic, start by repairing it, then find a mortgage broker and home that will let you go FHA with 3.5% down or so.

Hello Vickiana,
When the interest rates are as low as nowadays, that will not be my 1st choice...
Keep in mind that the way the market goes, most likely the owner of such a property will have in the contract that the sale price will be based of future appreciation (otherwise, the owner can easily sell the property within days (IF priced and marketed correctly) and will have no real motivation to do a Rent with Option to buy.
You will also will need , up front, 1st month and last month rent PLUS couple of months rent value as a guarantee that you will buy the property at the Lease' end, as per contract. Otherwise, you will forfeit the deposit....

With enthusiasm,

Hi Vickiana,

Excellent question! I just recently worked with a client who was strictly looking for a "rent-to-own" so I'm fortunate enough to have some experience in this department. Typically, the motivation for "rent-to-own" properties are for buyers who are not quite ready to buy (i.e. be it for financing purposes, market timing, etc.). In a buyer's market, "rent-to-own" properties are more popular as owners use this process as an incentive to attract buyers. In a seller's market, these properties are less frequent and the buyer may be the one that needs to come up with an incentive to entice the seller to rent first (i.e. A non-refundable deposit). Check out the website below, it will give you some additional info that you may find helpful. If any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Hi Vickiana:

I assume that you meant rent to own...meaning that you could rent a home with the intention of purchasing it. Usually in that situation, a purchase price is agreed upon in the beginning. There are several homes in the Coral Springs area to rent. My advice would be to find the home, rent it and then if you like living there, and you and the landlord have a good arrangement, you could both discuss a purchase.

I'd be glad to help you find a rental home in the Coral Springs area...I work in that area and my office is there as well. You can reach me at...

Hello Vickiana,

Many times consumers look to rent to own scenarios because they wish to purchase a home to take advantage of todays great pricing and inventory, but cannot save the down payment. Another likely consideration in these lease/purchase option transactions is these renters are currently not in the position to qualify for a mortgage in today's stringent lending market.

As an alternative to waiting to purchase, if the consumer can come up with a 10% down payment and pay their closing cost I have many local options for EZ Qualifying Sellers DIrect financing.

These properties can be lease, bought, lease optioned or owner financed...

Please feel free to contact me for a list of these properties if you might consider this alternative....
