Rent to Own? The Good, Bad, and Ugly

Last week, I received an email from a possible first time buyer in Woodbridge, Virginia with credit issues. Her question was "Is rent to own a good option while restoring credit?"

I share my answer in this week's video tip by your Woodbridge Mortgage Lender.

Markita, very nicely done!  It seems in this market, I see a lot of folks asking that question, thinking that it will be a better option for them.

Thanks Jean. Its only a better option if buyers get themselves in a position to buy after the lease is over.

Every situation is unique.  I get the same questions for rent to own and lease options, mostly from people that just got through a bankruptcy and wants to own a home again.
