How can I find rent-to-own homes in Charleston ?

First, know all the names and terms: Rent to own, lease/option, and a lease/purchase agreement are often used interchangeably, depending on who you ask.

 Not all properties are advertised this way, but technically, any property can be sold through a rent-to-own agreement.

We help people like you find properties and get through the process with minimal stress or expense.

Any property that is for sale or rent is a potential candidate for a lease agreement with an option to purchase.

The numbers can be calculated in lots of ways – the trick is working with the calculator until you find the agreement that works for the seller or buyer on the same property.

There’s a lot of great properties around Charleston on Craigslist, Zillow, Realtor.com, and even in the newspapers.

You can call and ask if they’d be willing to consider an agreement.

You’ll probably hear a lot of people tell you no, but investing the time can be worth it if you finally hear yes

Keep in mind that most sellers put their properties on the market hoping just to get the best price and walk away.

Even though a lease with an option is often a great arrangement for the buyer and the seller, it’s often offered only after the property has been on the market for a while.

Real estate agents may commonly say no without checking with a seller, but it’s common for sellers to change their mind after their house has been sitting on the market. Advertising terms like “flexible seller” and “will consider terms” often indicate that the seller is becoming increasingly desperate.

Of course, if you see an ad or a sign that offers seller financing, that’s slightly different – that’s where the seller acts as the bank and gives you a loan. You become the owner of the property, and if you don’t pay the loan then you might be hit with a foreclosure.

With a rent-to-own contract, you sign an agreement that is a lease with the option to purchase. You don’t necessarily have to complete the purchase, and you won’t get a foreclosure (but you will forfeit your deposit).

About Steve Banis

When I originally began investing in Real Estate, I wasn’t a real estate agent. And I still do not list houses as an agent! No, I’m not proposing that I list your home, or have you sign some kind of agency agreement. My involvement with you and your property is for our own investment portfolio.…. not the score-sheet of a Broker. My background includes that of being an executive for several Fortune 500 companies since 1968, an owner of real estate since 1975, a businessman in Boston, MA and Charleston, SC. I am a VETERAN of THE UNITED STATES ARMY, beginning my Service career January 1964, in Columbia, SC on Tank Hill at Ft. Jackson. I have been up and down the ladder in my business as well as my personal life - therefore I am well qualified to understand the various situations and challenges of the homeowners we meet. We can help provide solutions to various real estate challenges and situations. My passion is to assist in the sale and purchase of real estate. The rest of this report tells you how our company, CASH HOMEBUYERS of SOUTH CAROLINA, LLC., will assist you by purchasing your home.
