Can I Get a Rent to Own Home in Riverside County, California if My Credit is Bad?

Rent to own is increasingly becoming a preferred option among home buyers.

There are a number of reasons for this:

  • Perhaps the best known reason is that renting to own allows you to get into a home sooner — the home you’re eventually going to own — while you save up money to pay for the home.
  • Also, rent to own allows you to get into a home even if you have bad credit. So, many people with bruised credit scores prefer this method as a way to get a nice home for their family without the hardship of having to rent a cramped apartment while they work on their credit.
  • Renting first before buying allows you to “try out” a home before you actually buy it, thus helping you know for sure if it’s the home you want.
  • In recent times, many home buyers (even those with good credit) are finding it harder to get conventional mortgages. This has led to a big rise in the number of people buying homes on a “rent to own” basis.

People love rent to own! When talking about buying a home using the “rent to own” method, we often hear; “But my credit is bad, where can I find rent to own homes in Southern California, and will I even be able to qualify for a home?”.

Rent to Own information for people in Riverside County with bad credit

Even if you have bad credit, owning a home has never been easier with this powerful home ownership strategy. You can rent your way into home ownership easily and without the hassles of apartment living!

In most cases, your credit has much less impact on how you can acquire a property. Often, you just need proof of steady income.

Depending on the agreement and the situation, some of your rent may go toward the purchase price or closing costs in the future. You may need to work on your credit while you live in the house so you can eventually get a mortgage. It all depends on the rent to own situation and it can vary, depending on the agreement.
