The process, the paperwork, and the time it takes to do a Lease Purchase are all easier with our documented Lease Purchase Process.
This is the easiest purchase you will make!
- You start by selecting your next home on our website from dozens of nice homes.
- Next, you fill out the free application on the website and email it back to us.
- Follow that up by filling out the free credit report on our website and email us a copy.
- We review the application, the credit check, and any special circumstances you have.
- If everything looks good we sit down and go over the paperwork with you and have you sign up for your new.
We have helped people buy homes this way for a decade and you save about a thousand dollars in fees because we can do the paperwork in our office or at the house. No Realtor Commissions, no banks, no attorneys, no mortgage companies, and no waiting for months to qualify.
You will get some paperwork 1. a lease for one or more years ( 2 years is standard) and 2. an option to buy property.

Lease Purchase Benefits
- You can have your new home in as little as three days.
- The price you are paying for the home is fixed and will not go up over the term of the agreements. Even if the appraisal of the house goes up, whether by $10,000 or by $100,000, the price you agree to with us is the price you pay when you refinance later.
- This system gives you a house without the bank.
- You are not renting--you are purchasing a home. Follow the contract and the home is yours.
- You usually have two or more years to refinance.
- If you want to leave after the contract is fulfilled, you can! There is no foreclosure or hit on your credit.
- If you need a little more time to qualify, most owners are very accommodating because you are a buyer, not a renter.
- Some sellers will allow the buyers to do a lease purchase for many years.
- Many times you get the house at a reduced rate both in total price and monthly payments (often cheaper than rent).
- Sellers often want to move fast and will take less for their homes, knowing you are a buyer going to move in fast.
- Lease purchase buyers are viewed as buyers and not as tenants, thus the monthly payment often just covers the mortgage and the seller will allow a buyer to move in at a reduced rate.
- If you find financing quickly, everyone is happy, and there is no prepayment penalty.
Frequently Asked Questions
Question 1. >> Can the house be foreclosed while I am paying my part?
Answer >>We believe everyone must do their part. You pay a monthly fee to the owner of record. The owner may or may not have a mortgage. If the owner has no mortgage, the answer is obviously no. If the owner has a mortgage, by law the owner must pay the mortgage company when you pay your lease agreement. In our contracts, if the owner misses just one payment you can pay the bank or lending institution directly so that no payments are missed. What lender wants to or will foreclose on a house where they are being paid every month on time? (none)
Question 2. >> If the price of the house goes down over the term of the lease, do I have to buy it?
Answer >> No, you can walk away at the end of the fulfilled lease with no foreclosure or credit reduction.
Question 3. >> Can I buy a house this way if I have had a bankruptcy or foreclosure?
Answer >> This is about the only way I can think of unless you have all cash to buy a home. If you have or have had credit issues most will not qualify at the bank.
Question 4. >> Why isn’t everyone buying a house this way if it is so easy?
Answer >> Everyone has different circumstances. If you have cash, buy with cash. If you have a VA loan, buy with a VA loan. If you can obtain a mortgage, go get one. If you can not do any of the above, then this is a great way to buy a house, and thousands buy a home every year on a lease purchase or lease option just like this. It's simple, safe, and quick.
Question 5. >> Do I have to fix stuff if it breaks?
Answer >> Yes, you are buying the house. Do you call the bank when the light bulb needs changing, or if a window gets broken? No! Remember, with a lease purchase, you are a buyer, not a renter.
Question 6. >> How long does the entire process take?
Answer >> You can decide, but normally we can have you in a home in less than a week!
