Technicality: Contains introductory and advanced material with specific examples.
Provides Practical, How To Knowledge On: All the things you need to consider and learn before you even decide to use rent to own to get into home ownership, as well as specifics on who would qualify for rent to own, how to succeed, how to qualify for a mortgage and worksheets to help get your financial health back in order.
Summary: Rent to Own: A New Path to Homeownership contains fabulous, practical information on the rent to own process. They explain the good, the bad and the problems that can arise with the numerous rent to own and zero down schemes marketed by supposed real estate gurus, and gives you the no-nonsense truth about what it takes to be successful with rent to own.
This guide provides very practical knowledge that will help you if you are interested in rent to own to avoid the typical mistakes. It teaches you through real life examples to objectively evaluate a rent to own opportunity- and in order to find a good deal – you will need knowledge, patience and be willing to do research. One of the best things about this guide is the chapter that discusses the contracts involved in a rent to own. It is almost impossible to get the truth about contracts online, yes, there are plenty of bits and pieces but this guide puts it all together in one very easy, digestible chapter. Did you know that having two contracts in place provides the best security? I didn’t until I read this guide but have heard that many rent to owns are created without two contracts. This chapter tells you why you should have two contracts which is very important for your security and your success. Find out what you have to look for, and what to look out for.
Downside: Rent to Own: A New Path to Homeownership gives you the real world, practical steps you must take to be successful at rent to own. One complaint I do have is that there were no specific samples of the contracts discussed in the guide. There was very detailed information on how what the contracts should contain and what they should hypothetically look like, but they did not support the information with real life samples. Might seem like a petty complaint but I would have liked to have had a chance to review the language used in the discussed agreements.
Listen, if you are looking for the pep rally type book filled with fluff and no substance, or you already think you know everything there is to know about rent to own, than you won’t like this guide. On the flip side, if you admit to not knowing everything about rent to own and really want to learn how to succeed, then you will benefit from the information in this guide.
- A definite recommend if you are considering rent-to-own!

Due to a divorce and the impact it had on my credit, my options for owning my own home have become slim so picking up this book and researching rent to own was a no-brainer for me.
It’s a good feeling to read a book and hear that other people are enjoying successes in rent to own. The authors are generous in their advice and provide great tips on how to position yourself for a better future.
This book will definitely give you a leg up if you are looking at rent to own as an option to get you into home ownership.
