Hey everyone! This is step #2 of the 8-part series on how to find, rent, and buy a rent to own home. Step #1 was basically a review of what the 8-step guide is about, what you can expect to learn, and a cool FREE spreadsheet to use when analyzing homes you find.
If you missed it, you can read the post and watch the video by clicking here: rent to own program step #1. Make sure to download the free Rent to Own Killer Deal Spreadsheet to use for the next step.
What You Can Expect
In this step I go over a lot of important information! None of it involves using the spreadsheet from video #1(that’s step #3) because we aren’t evaluating deals quite yet.
In Step #2 I Am Going Over:
- The 4 Common Scams Used on Craigslist
- The Two Requests Most Scam Artists Have of YOU
- My Two Favorite Sites to Search – Instead of Craigslist
- Why You Don’t Have to Search Just “Rent to Own Homes” for a Deal
- A SECRET Way to be the FIRST to Know About New Listings!
I cant stress to you enough how important it is to be aware of scams, especially when using Craigslist for your search. In the video below I review four common scams that are being used on Craigslist. The first three are done through email and there are TONS of variations of these three scams.
The fourth scam I go over is more of a warning about companies online that claim to provide “rent to own listings.” I have spent a lot of time online researching for reviews on rent to own sites that charge a fee to see their listings. I haven’t found ANY that look promising to me and there are a LOT of people who feel they were ripped off. If you have had success getting into a rent to own house and actually BUYING the home, please leave a comment below to let all of us know which company it was!
If you haven’t already, read the prepaid credit card review and research I did, it’s a MUST read!
If you are serious about actually BUYING a rent to own house during the lease period, then signup for one right away so the power of time will be on your side! It’s 100% guaranteed approval AND they report to credit bureaus to build your credit. Plus, you probably know the owner of the company!

- Websites to use to Quickly Establish Values
- Inserting Numbers on the spreadsheet to Determine a Quality Deal
