Search The Classifieds

Many homeowners will opt to place ads themselves both in print and online. Keep your eye on the many different sites out there people use to post items for sale. Sometimes a rent to own property can be found in the strangest of places!

Present Your Case

Maybe you have found the perfect property on the MLS, but you just aren’t in a place to buy. One option would be to wait until the listing has expired, then propose a rent to own scenario to the owner. You’ll want to have your facts and figures in place, showing them how they will be able to benefit by receiving their original asking price.

Your Current Property

Have you been renting the same house for a long time? While your landlord likely enjoys receiving your rent check each month, they might like it even more if they are able to cash in their property, ultimately getting their asking price. If you think your landlord would be receptive to the idea, reach out to them! Have the numbers available to show them what the situation would look like from their point of view.

Reluctant Landlords

You can look for reluctant landlords by finding listings that have expired, with the properties being rented out instead. These landlords had likely wanted to sell as opposed to dealing with tenants and continued maintenance.

Unkempt Homes

You know when you are driving down the street and you see a house with overgrown landscaping, visible damage, or signs it is vacant? Typically, those owners aren’t as involved with owning the home and frankly may not care if they do or not. They may see your offer as an excellent way to sell a property that hadn’t cared about in the first place. Most ownership information is public record. Once you know who the owners are, approach them politely and professionally with a well thought out letter and proposal.

Less Competition

You are likely to find rent to own homes or homeowners willing to use a rent to own contract in areas with a slow or less competitive housing market. These sellers are looking for buyers and if you are able to present the right situation for them, you’ll likely be able to find a seller you can work with.

At H&M Realty Group, we will make the process simple for you! We can help you get a better understanding of the rent to own process so you will know exactly what to expect.
