Charleston South Carolina Houses for Rent – Why rent when you can own?

If you’re looking for Charleston houses for rent you may want to consider your other options as a potential home owner in the Charleston area.

Most locals who are looking for homes to rent in Charleston are likely looking at renting as their only option because of things like…

– Bad credit (and can’t get a traditional bank loan to purchase a home)

– Not enough funds for a large downpayment on the Charleston home you want to live in

– … or you’re just used to renting and didn’t know there were other options.

How Many Charleston Area Renters Are Turning To Home Ownership By “Renting To Own”?

If you haven’t heard of “renting to own” a home (some call it a “lease option”), you’re not alone.

But the “rent to own” concept isn’t new.

In fact, renting to own has become really common for many things, including furniture, electronics, cars, and more.

And the rent to own concept for houses has been around for decades as well.

So What Is A “Rent To Own” Home?

You can check out more info here on our website to learn more about renting to own a Charleston home… but in basic terms a rent to own home is…

… Simply a home where the owner of the house allows you to rent the house, with an option at the end of the rental term to purchase the house at a price you and the owner agree upon ahead of time.

You’re not obligated to purchase the home… but the seller is obligated to sell you the home at that pre-determined price if you choose to purchase it at the end of the rental term.

So How Does A Rent To Own Program Help You Buy?

There are a few big benefits to Charleston rent to own home programs like ours that can help many Charleston area residents to become home owners.

Usually there’s something causing people to choose renting over buying.

If your credit is preventing you from getting a bank loan to buy a home, a rent to own program can give you the time and assistance to improve your credit during the rental term… so at the end of the rental term you can hopefully qualify for a bank loan and buy the home!

Or for many people the issue is the downpayment.  If you just don’t have the money you’d need to put down on the house you’d want to live in… many times you can find rent to own programs with houses in the exact neighborhoods you want to live in… with much much lower move in fees… and even sometimes guidance in helping you build up the down payment needed during the rental term in the rent to own agreement.

In the end, if you’re looking for Charleston houses for rent… before you go and rent another house you may want to explore our Charleston Rent to Own Program to see if it’s right for you.

Renting to own isn’t for everyone… but if it’s the best fit for you this could be your chance to get out of the “rental rat race” and into a home of your own that you actually eventually own.
