8 Steps to a Killer Rent to Own Deal – #1 of 8

This is the first post of an eight part series I decided to put together! If you watch all of these videos and put the information to good use, then you and your family will own a house using a rent to own home, period.

And, I hope that you do because I make these posts and videos at night instead of going to bed! The only way I could convince Megan(my wife) that I’m not wasting my time was to promise her that you will use the advice and buy a house using a rent to own! -No Pressure, lol!

Rent to Own Guide Overview

The idea of this first post is to review what will be included in this 8 part series. Also, for me to get used to recording a video and speaking, it’s a lot harder than typing!

In the video I am using a spreadsheet that was put together to make your search a little easier.

A common problem buyers face is getting emotionally attached to a house and moving forward before looking at the numbers carefully.

This spreadsheet will give you a place to put real numbers to paper so you can analyze the true quality of the potential deal. You can grab the spreadsheet to use here:

  1. Just found your site today and am glad I did. I have but one suggestion to you and if you have already done so, then please disregard. I searched Amazon for an informative book on rent to own and found ONE, written in 2007. I didn’t purchase it as I know since the housing crisis really hit full swing in 2009, I wanted something with more up to date info. You should really consider writing a book about this process. This site is a Godsend for people such as myself and I know I would buy it if I had seen something a bit more recent on Amazon. Again, just a suggestion.

    • Kristina,
      Thanks for the comment! Your suggestion was right on time too! You see, I have been debating with myself if creating some type of product like an ebook would be helpful to visitors. I have actually decided to put together a more interactive guide instead of an Ebook. I find that when I buy an ebook online(or any book for that matter) I end up putting the book down if the first 20-30 pages aren’t interesting enough. I would hate for that to happen with something I put so much time into, and because readers would be missing out.
      So it will be more of a “flowchart layout” so you can easily see your progress while you are going through it. Then the majority, if not all, 49 sections will include a short video to help further explain the steps.
      Thanks for the comment!
