Rent To Own Program in Asheville NC
Why Own Your Own Home? There are many great reasons to own a home:
You’ll have a place that is yours! You’ll own it, have a place to raise your children and become a part of your community. You can pass your home down to your children, and their children, creating security for generations to come.
You may pay less to own a home than you would to rent – and it’s yours at the end!
Homeownership can reduce the federal income taxes you pay. You can deduct the interest on your mortgage and property taxes you pay on your home on the tax returns you file each year. These tax savings partially reduce, or offset somewhat, the actual cost of owning your home.
Your monthly payments won’t ever go up if you choose a fixed-rate mortgage! If you choose a mortgage with a fixed-interest rate (one that stays the same for the life of the loan, say 30 years), you'll pay the same mortgage payment each month for the entire 30 years of the loan.
You build a good nest egg!!
Owning a home is the single greatest source of financial security and independence for the majority of people who’ve taken this step. You can have it, too!
What is a Lease Option?
A Lease Option is similar to any type of “option”. It gives the Optionee the right or privilege to do something. In the case of a lease option, it allows the optionee the right to purchase a home at some pre-defined terms.
Benefits of Options for Buyers
Many buyers are individuals who have had some challenges in the past, i.e. bankruptcy, divorce, medical problems, lost job, etc. OR they might have a new job or haven’t saved enough of a down payment. When these types of situations happen to a person, it can be difficult to get a mortgage due to recent poor credit history or no credit history. This type of situation can be overcome with time. A lease option gives an individual time to repair or correct poor credit and time to create new credit.
How the program works
Lease Options are 12 Months in Length.
Here is an example of how it works:
123 Blue Street, Asheville, NC – Sales Price $175,000.00, Option fee $4,500.00 and a monthly Lease Rate of $1,275.00. The $4,500.00 Option Fee gives you the right to purchase 123 Blue Street for $175,000.00 within 12 months.
The $4,500.00 Option Fee is APPLIED BACK to the purchase price of the property at the time you get your mortgage.
On-time payments may be rewarded by giving you an additional rent credit for each month your lease payment is received by the 1st of the month. This could give you an additional lump sum to apply towards the purchase price of this home. However, if you decide not to purchase the home you would forfeit all of your option consideration: just like in any other type of ‘option’. Therefore, you need to be sure that you want AND can buy the home prior to signing the option agreements.
We will work with our lease purchase partners who will call you to begin the process
Once the screening process is complete, and you are approved for the program, you will be set you up with a seasoned mortgage broker who works with the program and will walk you through the process of getting qualified for a mortgage.
