What's in it for me?



Rent To Own serves both Buyers and Sellers equally and provides a much-needed alternative to the conventional market when values are down and lending guidelines are strict.  Read on to see the benefits to Roanoke home Buyers and Sellers.

Buyer Benefits

  • You don’t need 10% – 20% to move into your new house.  Only a small amount of cash is required up front.

  • Qualify with minimum credit requirements.  We realize bad things happen to good people and we have credit repair experts to help you build your credit while you’re in your home.

  • Move into your new house NOW.  No more moving, changing schools, having yard sales, etc. until you can buy a home conventionally.

  • Establish yourself in the community while you pay down debt, establish credit, build employment history, etc. to qualify for a loan and close.

  • Lock in a fair market rent and price for the full Option Term.  If prices go up you still pay the price you agreed on up front and you get the appreciation!

  • Ability to make improvements to make your house your “home”.  Unlike a traditional lease, our program allows you to make repairs and improvements to your house even before you close.

Seller Benefits


  • Immediate Debt Relief – Your payments are made by the Tenant-Buyer as soon as you approve them and we have a formal closing.  This can take as little as 1 week.

  • You Have No Maintenance – The Tenant-Buyer is responsible for all maintenance and repairs after 30 days so you can get on with your life and not have to worry about all of the “what ifs”.

  • Sell for Full Price – Because you’re flexible on terms buyers are willing to pay full price for the privilege of living in their home while having time to qualify for a loan to close.

  • Sell your House Fast – There is a very high demand for Rent To Own in today’s market.  By being flexible on terms you’re marketing to a whole new group of Buyers who are looking to move in today.

  • No Commissions – You pay nothing.  We collect our fee from the Tenant-Buyer’s Option Consideration.

  • You Hold Title – The house remains in your name until closing.

  • You Retain the Tax Benefits – Because you hold title you still reap the tax benefits of home ownership.

  • We Pre-screen all Applicants For You – We have a specific process for screening our applicants including employment verification, character references, landlord references, criminal background check, credit check, eviction history, etc.

  • Our Tenant-Buyers Have Coaches – We work closely with Lenders, Credit Coaches and even Financial Counselors.  If our Tenant-Buyers need assistance at any point along the way we provide the resources they need to close on your home.

  • It’s NOT Like Renting – Tenant-Buyers make a financial and emotional commitment up front resulting in a homeowner mindset so you’re not likely to have typical Landlord/Tenant problems as you would if just renting.  The home is cared for, the rent is paid on time and you don’t hear from the Tenant-Buyer until it’s time to close.
