Step One: Apply and Get Approved

No more filling out multiple applications for different properties, and paying hundreds of dollars in application fees. This process has been simplified so you only complete 1 application and you are given a maximum budget based on your income. This approval is valid for up to 120 days, and is as good as gold so long as nothing in your income & credit profile change.

Step Two: Find the Perfect Home

No more contacting landlords to try to schedule showings and not getting returned calls! Once your approval is in place, you'll work with one of our RE/MAX Results agents to compile a list of homes that are within your budget and meet your criteria. We'll schedule a tour of all of your favorite homes at once and accompany you during the showing process to pick the perfect home for you.


It's sort of like having a rich uncle. No, it's not too good to be true either. The investor purchases the home on your behalf, subject to the terms of your agreement with them. Depending on which program you choose (12mo Lease, Rent2Own, Contract for Deed), you'll have the opportunity to review all of the terms upfront including your monthly rent payment, which is ultimately based on the program you choose, and the length of the agreement.


Prior to closing on the property, the investor will have a thorough inspection to be sure there are no safety or quality issues. If the property passes inspection, they close on it and spend 2 weeks making any necessary repairs or requested updates so it's ready for you on your move in date!

Working with the 612RentNow Team in finding and securing our new home was awesome in every respect! They went out of their way to help and lead us in the right decisions, and their understanding and professionalism and patience with us was top! We would without a doubt seek them out should we need them in the future!

Great realtor team who cares about the clients they represent. The 612RentNow Team spent countless hours ensuring we got the house we wanted at the price we could afford. Although buying or selling a home is going to be stressful, the 612RentNow Team ensured that everything was in order and processing smoothly. I would highly  recommend them to everyone.

My boyfriend and I were looking to rent a house and were so lost but the 612RentNow Team helped us out tremendously. This process could not have been any easier. Thank you so much!
