There are many singles and couples who for a variety of reasons opt for a rent-to-own opportunity.

The expertise of the investor in identifying the right property and providing the right financing is another significant aspect for the tenant-homebuyer.

However, real estate does require work and the competition is fierce. Nowadays, with information so freely available on the internet and in books, many people do not want to climb the corporate ladder.
And who blames them. No one feels like working 30-40 years for companies with only 2 weeks of paid time off, barely making enough money to live off, invest for your future and put a roof over you or your family’s head.
The new trend is to retire early and enjoy a somewhat stress free life. Real estate can truly fulfill this promise and just keep in mind…if you don’t do it, then your next door neighbor will!
