Lease To Own Program
Have past or late payments, credit issues or a recent short sale, foreclosure or bankruptcy kept you from buying a new home? It’s time to change that!
Many good people got caught up in the housing bubble and were forced to short sale their homes or even had the bank take their home back. The sad thing is that many of these folks can afford a home and would like to buy, but the powers that be will not give them a loan for many years. It’s a shame, but it’s not the end of the world! Our program allows the person renting to pick out the home of their choice right out of the MLS! The investor buys it and leases it to the potential buyer. All rents and purchase prices are discussed up front. It’s unique and a great way to get out of a bad situation.

What does “Right to Purchase” mean?
Basically each year, the Purchase Right Price increases by 5% (IE, Prior Year Purchase Right Price x 1.05).
In the example, if the Total Cost Basis of the home is $200,000, then the Purchase Right Price for Years 1-5 is as follows:
Year 1 ………………………………. $210,000
Year 2 ………………………………. $220,500
Year 3 ………………………………. $231,525
Year 4 ………………………………. $243,100
Year 5 ………………………………. $255,255
There are additional costs that the resident will incur if they exercise the Purchase Right such as closing costs to purchase the home, including transfer taxes, attorneys’ fees, title insurance, etc. therefore, actual total costs to exercise the Purchase Right will vary.
