Re: What Have You Done With Rent To Own Tenants Who Didn't Buy?

What Type Of Mortgage Best Suited For RTO?
When you structure a RTO, what type of mortgage is best suited? Do you base it on the term of the actual rent period? Do you use an open mortgage in case the tenant/buyer leaves before the rent period is over (or requires an extension)?

Re: Rent to Own
Hi Chris, Declining markets can be the bane of RTO. There was a major RTO company in Alberta that had billboards everywhere not too long ago and they even had franchisees doing RTO under the umbrella. A few short years later in a declining market most to all those franchisees are gone and that company...
