HOW IT WORKS
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, pay a $95 fee per household, and you are given a maximum rent 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 to Rent
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.
STEP THREE: THE INVESTOR PURCHASES THE HOME FOR YOU TO LEASE
It's sort of like having a rich uncle. No, it's not too good to be true either. The investor purchases the home and leases it to you for 12 months. At the end of the 12 month lease, you'll have the option to renew for another 12 months or provide your notice to vacate and move out. Your damage deposit is fully refundable, subject to the condition of the home when you move out of course.
STEP FOUR: PROPERTY IS INSPECTED TO ENSURE SAFETY AND QUALITY
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. All the perks of your own home, with the convenience and flexibility of renting!
