There are many singles and couples who for a variety of reasons opt for a rent-to-own opportunity. For some it's an opportunity to check out a location for a couple of years so that they're certain it's the house and neighborhood they want for the long-term; for others it's the desire to own a home but need to grow their down payment-having a nice home while they save is a terrific option. The expertise of the investor in identifying the right property and providing the right financing is another significant aspect for the tenant-homebuyer.
The benefits for the investor are many: a solid property in an area where the fundamentals are strong; great tenants who respect the property; a profitable investment even with a downturn in the market.
Investing in Rent-to-Own Property is the quintessential tool for investors who have yet to take advantage of a proven money-maker or for those investors who want the benefit of a proven system to build their portfolio.

During the last ten years, despite China’s remarkable progress in the development of its venture capital market, its domestic venture capital has been marginalized by American competitors. Given the different performance between them, the author contends that the corporate governance system of Chinese state-controlled listed companies has hampered the performance of the institutional factors which are responsible for the prosperity of American venture capital in Chinese venture capital markets.
With the practice of American venture capital as the mirror, he empirically demonstrates that Chinese domestic venture capital lacks the four factors related to the success of their American counterparts: large and independent funding, application of incentive mechanisms, efficient exit channels, and a high risk tolerance level. More importantly, these defects as a whole are closely linked to the corporate governance of state-controlled listed companies. Considering the potential negative consequences on economic and social development, the author identifies policy reforms underway to harmonize agency costs and adaptive efficiency.
It also gives you financial freedom and peace of mind, because you can work whenever you feel like it. You will never have to clock in or deal with office politics. You are not held responsible by your boss, because you are the boss.
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!
