The Wonders of Lease Options

“Wholesaling is great, but you need to have some avenue to utilize your leads that you’re throwing away and that’s where lease options come in.”

John Jackson
King of Lease Options

In real estate investing, there are two options that most investors have in mind, buy-and-sell, and buy-and-hold. When you buy-and-sell properties, you aim to put the property at its best shape possible by renovating, then sell it out as soon as possible in the market. Meanwhile, when you buy-and-hold properties, you still do the renovations on the property itself but the thing is that you aim to maintain the property under your name, hold them at the time, and then sell them when they have been appreciated well.

When you are starting in real estate, you might be wondering what is much better between the two options. Yes, they both have their own strengths and weaknesses, and you can choose them depending on the situation you are in. However, there is an avenue for you to merge the best of both worlds – gain the benefits of buying and selling properties, and get the opportunity to hold real estate at once. Let’s venture off to the wonders of lease options.

The Base: How do you define lease options?

Basically, lease option is a “legal term” for rent-to-own, which you may already have an idea of. Most people find a negative connotation of what rent-to-own is and how it can be exploitative for industries outside real estate investing. However, this option can actually be a legal instrument between you as the owner/seller and your tenant/buyer.

It involves the lease that includes their monthly amount due, and the option to buy the property at any given time during the agreement for a predetermined price. You, as the owner, should have an agreement on what would be the price of the home upfront and have them rented the property until they have the amount needed to fully purchase it. With that being said, you actually give your potential buyer more flexibility than the standard lease agreement where the renter is required to buy the property when the lease ends. 

If you use lease options  it’s actually a win-win situation, you give opportunity to your tenants to buy the property from the get-go without you having the need to look out for other possible buyers since a potential buyer is actually renting your property already!
