Meet Landis: A New Way to Go from Renter to Owner

Meet Landis: A New Way to Rent to Own

My NC Homes has never been a big fan of Rent to Own;because 99% of the time these offers were never truly meant to actually work. They were designed so that theBuyershave very little chance of actually ever owning the home so that the Seller could re-sell the home 1-2 years later to another Buyer and then another and another etc. If a Buyer was able to actually fulfill the Seller'sRent to Own Contract,the Seller still won because they'd gotten the buyer to end up paying them well above market rate. We've written about this previously in our Post Rent-to-Own is Never a Good Deal.

While this sounds great as usual there's much more to it than simply being forgiven your payments.
