After 2008, people had to really become creative when it came to housing. Rent To Own Homes were an amazing one of theses solutions because it allows you to “test drive” the home before you commit to buying it.
How it works is that the tenant rents the home for a certain amount of time. Say, a year, then when that time is up, they are given the option to purchase the home. Often, they will be paying the down payment for the house a little bit every month proceeding the purchase. That is a portion of their rent during those months of renting.
- You may also purchase the option to buy the property for a predetermined price at the end of your lease by putting down a payment. With this option in place, you are not bound to purchase at the end of the lease, but meanwhile, the property owner can’t sell to anyone else.
- Plans like this can appeal to people with little or no savings for a down payment, or people with bad credit or no credit who don’t qualify for traditional mortgages. Including those who lost their homes in foreclosures.
- Renting to own is also a way to get into a desired neighborhood in a timely matter. As with parents who need to be in school district for their kids, or people who are uncertain of their timeline. It’s a way to get into a house without committing to a 30 year mortgage.

Who knew that simply living in your home would actually build something called home equity? That’s a good thing, by the way. What is “home equity” on your zero-down home from the H.O.P.E. Program, for instance?
Simply Put, Your “Home Equity” Is the Combined-Amount Market Value of Your Home Based on All the Interest You Invested in It
That could easily include anything from renovations to countless mortgage payments over time. So it’s true: you literally could increase the value of your home — simply by living in it, generally speaking.
You can’t ever know what your home’s value is, though, just by lying on your bed eating some Doritos, though. You have to call your lender and get the figures from him/her. This isn’t an etched-in-stone situation either, as home equity largely does depend on the market itself around your neighborhood. If your real estate market’s hitting it big in your area, you might see that your property’s appreciating much more, increasing the home equity — or the real property value — a lot more substantially than you would think. Hence you might actually get approved for something called a “home equity loan.”
Since you put so much money already into the home — either through your mortgage payments or renovations — there’s some investment paid off to you in the long run in the event you want to sell the home and move out. Gives you a bit of a cushion and makes it a lot easier to answer any questions you may have about the possibility of upgrading to a new dwelling.
Additionally, Your Professional Life Might Also Progress
This can happen naturally. Perhaps you hit a big raise. Or a promotion. Maybe you changed jobs. Who knows. Regardless of home equity, your income somehow increased and you can actually afford a larger mortgage payment, covering all sorts of additional costs such as closing expenses and additional renovations to the new property, wherever it may be. Suddenly the prospect of moving out seems to be that much more plausible.
Things to Consider When Thinking About Moving Out of Your Current Home
You could ponder on a home equity loan with a line of credit to net you some funds for moving out. Or maybe your career has advanced so well that the idea of moving to a different home makes sense. Whatever the case, know that it’s all about finances. If you don’t have the dollars to do it, please don’t do it! If, however, you might be “rolling” in it to some degree, perhaps you can explore the possibility.
