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.
