Luxury Investors Find That Rent to Own Homes Cash Flow Best

Friday, May 16th, 2008


In a study put out by the Gershwin Group on Monday, investors with investment real estate were found to be utilizing over all other methods of long term holding as the fastest way to cash flow their investment properties.

The study highlighted the three methods of retaining properties for long term capital appreciation and their effectiveness:

- Renting
- Renting via government assistance ( Section 8 )
- Rent to own (lease option)

The study was backed by a 10+ year poll of independent investors that answered questions relating to their success or failure of each methodology.

Overall, renting to own a home lead the pack with 78% of respondents saying that the method was the most successful long-term. The effectiveness of renting to own was clearly beneficial over other methods because in most cases the monthly mortgage and related expenses were entirely covered. Only as few as 12% of the renters ended up actually excising their option to purchase and they were found to pay on average a staggering 17% higher than normal price for the home. To further compound the benefits, investors received larger down payments, $5,625 on average and properties were maintained better by the renters. Much of the improved maintenance stems from the renters hope of future ownership. 14% of tenants were found to improve properties on the order of at least $25,000.

Overall, we see the use of rent to own homes by savvy investors to increase. With foreclosures amplifying, the market for tenants will continue to grow. This is an excellent time to own rental property but smart investors will consider a rent to own option instead.

For sellers interested in renting to own you should see the following nationwide company, which provides free listings and a wealth of lease option information.

“Traditional lenders aren’t as interested in lending to super jumbo borrowers because they’ve experienced huge losses on many of the mortgage loans originated in the past few years. The whole sub-prime mess has pushed banks and large lenders away from being able to help luxury borrowers. After four months of dialogue, negotiations and diligence our backers have given us their blessing for this offering,” said Jason Fox, President of Luxury Mortgage Group. “Our clientele expects us to provide them with rates and terms that no one else can provide. By creating this new Affluent Advantage program, our clients now truly do have options that no one else in the world can offer. We will continue to expand our market share all throughout 2008 while we see other lenders struggle to offer mortgage loans at all.”

As the only direct lender to specifically focus on the financing of high rise condos, condotels and luxury homes, we are proud to shape the luxury finance market in America,” Wilson said.
