Did you know prior to CMHCs inception in 1946, Rent to Own was VERY popular as a way for people to own a home?  CMHC slowed that due to their low down payment after WWII.  
However, with the federal government's constant new rules, the possibility of CMHC going private and other factors, Rent to Own is again becoming more and more popular.
Over 200 people in Ontario every month, look into Rent to Own...either to buy a house or to save their house from foreclosure.

Benefits of Rent to Own Canada

  1. Get to have a look and feel of the house and neighborhood before making a decision. You can choose not to purchase.
  2. If you have poor credit history, you can improve your credit rating over the term and thereafter use rent credits to build your own down payment
  3. Most times at the end of your term, the market value of the home is higher than what you will pay to purchase it.  Gives you instant equity - On the other side, should there be a real estate crash and you do owe more than it's value, you do not have to purchase it
  4. However, along with the benefits, there are some risks involved in this agreement

Risks involved in Rent to Own homes Canada
  1. You will have to forfeit the option payment if you do not go through with the purchase
  2. There is no guarantee that the bank will give you the needed financing to purchase the house at term end...however, our partner has been doing this since 2005 and both them and us work with you during the term to ensure you WILL be able to obtain financing

Effective tips on how to Rent To Own your home in Canada
i)     We require a qualified inspection and appraisal before signing the lease and negotiate the best price for you upfront
ii)    If you decide to make monthly payments, write 2 checks; one for rent and the other for down payment. This serves as proof of how you 
       have contributed towards the down payment.
iii)   Do not assume that you can purchase a house without down payment - You will need min. 3% or you may lose in the end
iv)   Keep detailed records of every financial transaction that goes down
v)    Carry out some research on mortgages before signing the agreement - As licensed mortgage agents, we can help
vi)   Use your real estate attorney for Independant Legal Advice.  If your Rent to Own firm wants you to use theirs...walk!
vii)  Use your Real Estate Agent to help you find the right house or we can recommend an experienced realtor for you

Your friends may be right, renting to own in Canada is an effective way to get your dream home without a down payment. However, take time to weigh out the benefits and risks before making a commitment.
