But, failing to put together your rent to own profile is one of the biggest mistakes a buyer can make.
When you skip this simple step, you will likely end up failing to purchase the rent to own house and completely swear off the idea of rent to own.
Creating your profile is that important!
Common Issues When Step #1 is Skipped:
- Fail to qualify for mortgage before option period expires(Losing House)

- Ends up with a house payment $500 or more above their original rental amount(Unaffordable)
…And the list doesn’t stop there!
Thankfully, putting together your profile only takes a few minutes. So don’t end up with one of the issues listed above and follow along.
Did You Know…
You have THREE credit scores from three different bureaus?
It’s true, and all three credit scores affect you and your ability to be the perfect rent to own candidate. When you’re looking to qualify for a loan, mortgage companies don’t use just one of your scores. They take all three of your credit scores and find the average, or “middle score.”
The middle score is the magic number when qualifying you for a mortgage. Finding out your credit score will help you understand how long your option period needs to be… or if rent to own is not a good option for your family currently.
