How can I find rent-to-own homes in Hickory?

First, know all the names and terms: Rent to own, lease/option, and a lease/purchase agreement are often used interchangeably, depending on who you ask.

Not all properties are advertised this way, but technically, any property can be sold through a rent-to-own agreement.

We help people like you find properties and get through the process with minimal stress or expense.

Any property that is for sale or rent is a potential candidate for a lease agreement with an option to purchase.

The numbers can be calculated in lots of ways – the trick is working with the calculator until you find the agreement that works for the seller or buyer on the same property.

There’s a lot of great properties around Hickory on Craigslist, Zillow,, and even in the newspapers.

You can call and ask if they’d be willing to consider an agreement.

You’ll probably hear a lot of people tell you no, but investing the time can be worth it if you finally hear yes

Keep in mind that most sellers put their properties on the market hoping just to get the best price and walk away.

Even though a lease with an option is often a great arrangement for the buyer and the seller, it’s often offered only after the property has been on the market for a while.

Real estate agents may commonly say no without checking with a seller, but it’s common for sellers to change their mind after their house has been sitting on the market. Advertising terms like “flexible seller” and “will consider terms” often indicate that the seller is becoming increasingly desperate.

Of course, if you see an ad or a sign that offers seller financing, that’s slightly different – that’s where the seller acts as the bank and gives you a loan. You become the owner of the property, and if you don’t pay the loan then you might be hit with a foreclosure.

With a rent-to-own contract, you sign an agreement that is a lease with the option to purchase. You don’t necessarily have to complete the purchase, and you won’t get a foreclosure (but you will forfeit your deposit).

Melissa Hall: Mother of 4 , Business Owner and Full Time Real Estate Investor. I am a full time real estate investor who specializes in wholesaling. I began wholesaling in January, 2016, at a time in my life when I could not even feed my children. We were on government assistance and nowhere near getting by. The day I stepped out of my comfort zone to attend a real estate meetup in Charlotte, NC I had $17 to my name. This meetup changed mine and my children's lives. I met a man who took a chance on me and guided me through the process of wholesaling. I laugh today and tell him it was the best thing he will ever do. About 6 weeks after meeting him we cashed a $25,000 check and from that day forward I knew I was in control of my destiny, my finances and my dreams. Wholesaling allowed me to become knowledgeable in many aspects of real estate as well as make money without using any of my own money, credit or credentials. Which was good because I had none of either. 18 months later I have grossed 6 figures. Most importantly was able to help my family, troubled sellers and investors. If done morally and ethically wholesaling can change your life. To give back I will be starting a non profit this year in which I will give homes to victims of violent crimes. Real Estate Rocks!
