Home Partners changes the game with innovative lease-to-own program

Home Partners changes the game with innovative rent-to-own program Struggling to make your homeownership dreams a reality in today’s tight mortgage market? Home Partners of America is here to help. Their lease-to-own program makes home owning easy with its competitive lease structures and option to purchase after one year. 

Is Home Partners for you?

Home Partners serves:

  • Cautious, first-time home buyers
  • Credit-worthy people who currently cannot obtain a mortgage
  • People who have recently re-located
  • Retirees
  • People with foreclosure on record
  • And more!

How it works

Let’s say you’re interested in becoming a Home Partners resident. Not unlike a traditional house hunting process, you’ll be working alongside a real estate agent to view listings that fit your budget, lifestyle and daily commute. The only difference: you’ll be viewing listings in Home Partners approved communities. What does that mean? For a community to be approved by Home Partners, it must meet safe housing criteria, have access to A-rated school systems with listings typically priced between $100,000 and $550,000.

As you might’ve guessed, these communities tend to house few single-family rental properties, which is where Home Partners comes into play. Once you decide on a listing, Home Partners will make an all-cash offer to purchase the home with the intent to lease. Then, you the resident, agree to a minimum one-year lease with rent rates increasing at 3.75 percent each year.

Next steps

Home Partners residents can decide to purchase their rental at any point in the five-year lease agreement, during which residents are advised to repair their finances to qualify for a mortgage loan. In the event residents wish to vacate their rental after one year, they’re free to do so penalty-free.

For cautious renters looking to buy, Home Partners is the simple solution. To learn more about your options, contact a Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Metro Brokers agent today!
