As an alternative source of financing for your own home (when the bank say “not right now”), you should know what some of the pro’s and con’s are. Rent to own truly works best for those that understand how it will work for them (what is your “WHY?”) and are committed to making it work for them.

Pro’s of Rent to Own

1. You get to move into the home you want (you select the house) today instead of waiting until you can qualify for your own mortgage

2. You get the time to rebuild, repair or establish your credit

3. You have the necessary time to accumulate a bigger downpayment. Depending on the program is set up, you should be contributing to your downpayment each month, taking the burden off of you to save that money yourself. A portion of each months payment will be credited to your downpayment. For example, if your monthly payment is $2000 a month, rent could be $1500 (to cover the carrying costs on the property) while the other $500 would be credited to your downpayment

4. You get an instant equity stake in the house with your initial downpayment

5. You are considered the owner of the house; you maintain and repair the property AND have the ability to upgrade or improve the property which could result in an increased value for the house = more equity for you

6. All numbers, including what price you will pay for the house at the end of the program are agreed upon up front. No surprises for you after you have worked hard to qualify.

7. Your monthly payment is fixed, meaning it will not increase during the time you are in the program

8. You can receive incentives based on meeting outlined credit goals (you get paid to repair your credit)

9. You are protected by two agreements, one that protects you as a renter, one that protects you as the option holder to purchase the house at the end of the program

10. No fees (in the RIGHT rent to own arrangement)

Con’s of Rent to Own

Great, so there are plenty of pros. Are there cons? Sure there are but they aren’t all that different from having your own mortgage. These con’s have less power if you are committed to the process of improving your situation.

1. Your initial downpayment is non-refundable. Rent to own is a commitment just like having a mortgage. If you aren’t prepare to honour the commitment, don’t do it. Keep renting

2. If you don’t make your payments, you can be evicted which will result in your losing your downpayment

3. If you don’t do your homework and have your agreements reviewed by a lawyer, you could end up signing yourself into trouble. Always have a lawyer review your agreements (this does not only apply to rent to owns either)

4. If you don’t improve your credit so you can get a mortgage, you could end up having to leave the house at the end of the program resulting in losing your downpayment. Credit repair is also a commitment, be dedicated to work hard to improve your credit situation

5. If the numbers are not calculated fairly (based on the market), you could end up in a situation where the price of the house is set too high relative to the actual value of the home at the end of the program. Do your homework on the area you want to live in. Make sure you understand the numbers and that you approve of them before signing any agreements

6. Biggest con of rent to own is to do a “no-money” down rent to own but I won’t dive into this as I have touched on this topic before
