Are Rent To Own Homes A Good Idea

Is it better to live in rent to own homes, rent, or buy our homes outright? The answer, like many questions of this nature, depends on a lot of things.

Let's discuss how do rent to own homes work and determine if it’s  the right fit for  your situation.

There are two separate contracts to sign: – Rental agreement – A lease option to purchase


The rental agreement is similar to a standard lease with the rent specified with agreed-upon term to purchase the home potentially.

Rental Agreement

One thing tenants should pay attention to is whether or not the landlord covers maintenance costs  or not.

Rent-To-Own Home Maintenance

Something else to consider in the agreement is whether or not the home is a lease-purchase or  lease-option.

Lease Option/ Purchase

Everything in life is negotiable. That also applies to the rent to own homes option. Make sure you address this with the owner before signing  any agreement.
