Everything an Agent Should Know About Assisting Rent-to-own Transactions

Rent-to-own allows agents to convert a rental income property into a potential sale before they even list it.

The biggest takeaway is that they get a full commission, rented out to the home shopper as they accumulate.

Here's how it works: The agent will get the listing of the property and then rent it out on a month-to-month basis. As soon as the tenant moves in, they'll take care of all maintenance costs until the time period is up. When it's time for them to move out, they'll have no choice but to buy the home or move elsewhere.

This is great for agents because not only are they collecting full commissions from their clients without having to do much work at all, but they're also earning interest on those funds until the client decides to buy their home—which means even more money!

Assisting clients in finding homeowners who would be interested in rent-to-own transactions

Before you begin assisting in rent-to-own transactions, it's important that you understand what the client is looking for. This includes helping them find homeowners who would be interested in selling their house as a rental property. You'll have to do some research and ask questions like:

  • What is your budget?

  • Are there any special needs or requirements?

  • Do you have a large family or pets?

  • How big of a home are you looking for?

Helping them find the best financing program that meets their needs

As an agent, you want to make sure your clients are getting the best possible financing program. This helps protect their interests and gives them peace of mind. But what makes a good financing program?

The best financing programs have low rates and terms that work within your client's budget. They should also offer flexible options if you have less than perfect credit or no credit history at all! There are many different types of programs out there, so take some time to compare them.

Rent-to-own transactions help you find more clients and earn more commissions

Rent-to-own transactions could help you find more clients and earn more commissions. This is because they are usually done so that a person can get their own home, or a nicer one than they could afford on their own.

These transactions also allow you to build a strong relationship with your client because after the contract is up, the tenant will be able to purchase the property at any time during the agreement period. The end goal for both parties is for everything to go smoothly so that everyone wins in this situation!
