Awareness of rent to buy in Scotland (also known as rent to own) has been increasing year by year. I remember ten years ago, people would look at me blankly when I mentioned it, but now more and more folks know what it is.
More importantly, they're aware of the fantastic benefits that rent to buy can give aspiring homeowners, who are unable to get onto the housing ladder, through no fault of their own.
The problem though, has been that rent to buy homes have been pretty scarce, and are snapped up very quickly when they appear (no surprise!).
We hope to help solve that problem with our rent to buy homes alert service -- more on that below.
Now and then, investors in our network make homes available for rent to buy. If you register via the form below, we'll be able to introduce you to investors like these, if they have a home that closely fits the requirements you've given us.
You could be working towards owning your own home quicker than you think!
The benefits of rent to buy are easy to understand:
Rent to buy obviously isn't for everyone, you need to be serious about owning your own home. But, if you are and you fall into one or more of these categories, then it could be for you:
Sometimes, an investor will make available for rent to buy, a home that is in "fixer upper" type condition.
In these instances, they will usually credit you an amount towards your deposit in return for your doing the repairs (or having them done over the time that you're renting to buy).
This gives you the opportunity to stamp your own personality on the property right from the start!
Rent to rent opportunities can potentially pop up anywhere, but we should soon have homes available in the following areas:
Some opportunities will be semi-detached and cottage flats and some will be flats. Many folk will be looking to get into a house but do consider taking a flat to start with. Don't forget that once you get on the housing ladder with a flat, you can sell and buy a house!
If so, then why wait? If you are interested in renting a home to own, register your interest in rent to buy in Scotland today.
