How Do Rent-to-Own Home Purchases Work?

Generally, with rent-to-own agreements, the tenant pays the owner a deposit or monthly rent premiums, or both, with the intention of buying the home in the future.

Rent-to-own agreements offer a path toward homeownership for people who can’t qualify for a mortgage or afford a down payment. Under a rent-to-own agreement, you can move in and rent a home with the option of owning it later, often building a down payment as you pay rent. But keep in mind that this strategy can be risky. Less-scrupulous sellers may take advantage of the fact that rent-to-own tenants may not have as many rights as homeowners. Depending on the terms of the agreement, the seller may have the right to evict a tenant, keep the money that was put toward the purchase and then rent the home out to a different tenant. Here's what to know if you're considering a rent-to-own agreement.

The Basics of Rent-to-Own Agreements
The details of rent-to-own, also known as lease-to-own, arrangements can vary greatl ...

Spring Forward and Sell Your Home for the Most $$$

Just like our clocks this weekend, the housing market will soon “Spring Forward!” Similar to tension in a spring, the lack of inventory available for sale in the market right now is what is holding back the market.
Many potential sellers believe that waiting until Spring is in their best interest, and traditionally they would have been right.
Buyer demand has seasonality to it, which usually falls off in the winter months, especially in areas of the country impacted by arctic temperatures and conditions.
BUT THAT HASN’T HAPPENED THIS YEAR !
Demand for housing has remained strong as mortgage rates have remained near historic lows. Even with the recent increase in rates, buyers are still able to lock in an affordable monthly payment. Many more buyers are jumping off the fence and into the market to secure a lower rate.
The National Association of Realtors recently reported that the top months sellers listed their homes in 2017 all fell in April, May,. ...

30 Tips for Increasing Your Home's Value

Home Improvements: Under $100


Tip 1: Spend an hour with a pro.
Invite a realtor or interior designer over to check out your home. Many realtors will do this as a courtesy, but you will probably have to pay a consultation fee to a designer. Check with several designers in your area; a standard hourly fee is normally less than $100, and in an hour, they can give you lots of ideas for needed improvements. Even small suggested improvements, such as paint colors or furniture placement, can go a long way toward improving the look and feel of your home.
Tip 2: Inspect it.
Not every home improvement is cosmetic. Deteriorating roofs, termite infestation or outdated electrical systems — you can't fix it if you don't know it's broken. Hire an inspector to check out the areas of your home that you don't normally see. They may discover hidden problems that could negatively impact your home's value. Small problems (such as a hidden water leak) can become big, expensive problems quickl. ...
