Cool Buying Homes Subject To...


Why are real estate investors having so much success offering "rent to own" homes?

Lease-options offer home ownership opportunities to folks with little cash and not so hot credit. Oh boy, there are plenty of those around.

Both parties in a lease-option deal are counting on the buyer being able to qualify for a home loan before the option expires.

During the lease period the renter must be working to improve their credit score to the point where they can qualify for a loan.

That lessee has been lead to believe they can buy the home and when they find out they can't we are sure some hungry lawyer will rush to their rescue.
