How to tell the good ones from the bad ones?
Looking to get in to an RTO but having trouble finding a plan that would work for us

Want to make sure we can get get a mortgage on exit
Self employed stated income

I am looking to get in to a rent to own program. We currently are wanting to buy and are self employed with stated income.
We do not have the required deposit to get a mortgage and are looking at alternate options

I'm not suggesting they are a scam, I'm just saying they are controversial and one must have a compelling reason on why your doing it. If for example, you knew the market was about to experience high appreciation, but who does? Do you have a good reason on why you must buy now?

we have to vacate current residence as the owner wants to tear down. Rent is crazy, so I am looking at options

Rent to owns are the rub and tug of the real estate industry. It is for jokers.

My suggestion is to avoid borrowing money at 50% +++++ interest.
It’s a service offered to those with bad credit. It makes sense for future buyer and current owner if terms are set properly.

Like a used car, you can overpay or get a fair deal. That doesn’t invalidate the industry or the concept !!

Thanks to everyone who mentioned me. :) Sorry for joining the conversation so late.

RTO can be a great option for someone ready to buy a property but who doesn't quite qualify with the bank. It especially makes sense in a rising market where one can lock in to a price and not gamble on how high the market will go. However, it is critical to find a reputable company who will be able to work with you if the worst case scenario happens.

The first thing you should do is speak to a mortgage specialist who knows how to get RTO purchases financed. Then you'll have a better idea what roadblocks you face and how to prepare for your eventual purchase.

If you email me at Sherilynn@QDHomeQuest.com I'll give you the contact details for my banker. She works magic for our clients and is able to work across Canada. It is important to note it has become difficult for mortgage brokers to get RTO deals financed because brokers and bankers have different guidelines. That's why we stick with our magic banker. ;)

I can also suggest a few RTO specialists you could contact.
