Leasing with the option to purchase a home, often referred to as a “lease option” or “rent-to-own” agreement, is a housing arrangement where a tenant leases a property for a specific period with the option to buy the home at a predetermined price at the end of the lease term. Initially, you enter into a lease agreement with the property owner, similar to a standard rental agreement. You pay monthly rent and agree to a lease term, which can range from one to three years. The lease agreement includes an option clause that gives you the exclusive right, but not the obligation, to purchase the property at a specified price within the lease term. The purchase price of the home is set at the beginning of the lease option agreement. This is a great option to lock in a price at the beginning of the lease term, avoiding unpredictable increases in the market value. Lease options provide flexibility for tenants who may not be ready or able to purchase a home immediately. It allows you to live in the property as if it were your own while deciding whether homeownership is the right choice for you.
