How Rent To Own Real Estate Works
Also known as a lease option, rent to buy homes are a type of owner financing tor real estate properties.
While the terms of the agreements can vary from house to house, the typical scenario is one in which the owner is looking to sell the property but is willing to accept payment over a period of time, rather than an up front settlement.
In this case, the buyer and seller both agree on the selling price of the home, and the terms of the purchase agreement, specifying things such as payment terms, interest, and length of the agreement.
Usually, owner-financed properties are paid off much sooner than a traditional bank mortgage, but by allowing the renter time to accrue equity in the house, the renter can often roll over that equity into a traditional mortgage after 1-3 years, if the need arises.
Every month the renter/buyer makes a payment to the seller. Typically, part of this payment is credited as rent, while a second part is credited towards the interest on the loan and/or equity in the home. Over time, the renter can then buy out the seller, even if the renter didn’t originally have a large downpayment or the credit needed to qualify for a traditional mortgage.
Kissimmee Lease Purchase Homes and Houses
While there are many advantages to lease option, or lease to purchase homes, one of the main difficulties can be in locating the currently available properties.
Many rent to own listings are never uploaded to national or local databases, since it is common for sellers to work independently and not go through a real estate agent for these transactions. It is also common for sellers of owner financed, rent to buy properties to sell their homes casually, meaning that they are interested in selling, but are in no hurry to do so, meaning the listings are not widely publicized.

Listings for Rent To Buy Properties in Kissimmee, Florida
Unless you’re already living in Florida or very familiar with the area, you might not have heard of Kissimmee. This small city is a great location to live, however, and if you haven’t already started looking for houses in the area, I suggest you start immediately.
A city of only 65,000 people, Kissimmee, FL has a nice mix of small town feel while maintaining easy access to the amenities of a larger city. Not only that, but you’ll enjoy the great benefits of living in Florida, which range from sunny weather for most of the year to the low-tax incentives that drive many people to move to this incredible state.
If you’re serious about moving to Kissimmee, Florida, then the best thing you can do is to start your search. I usually recommend you start with a broad search and gradually narrow down to find the specific features of the home you’re looking for.
Many people start their new house search by listing out features of the home that they’d like to see. While this can be a good approach if you’re positive you know what you’re looking for, but on the other hand it runs the risk of having you weed out houses that might actually be a good fit. That’s why I like the start broad and narrow approach to buying real estate, since it allows you to filter out houses only when you’re 100% sure that they have aspects you’re not interested in.
Additionally, I encourage you to rank your desired characteristics in order of priority. At the very least, divide them into essential must-haves and the non-essential would-be-nice features. This way, you can be realistic about finding the sweet spot between your dream home, the current real estate market, and your budget and financing options.
Also, you can consider rent to buy houses if you’ve found a good house but can’t quite qualify for the mortgage you want. Click the link above to browse a complete database of rent to own homes in Kissimmee, FL.
