Can We Rent To Own Or Lease Purchase? One question I get more often than "Are we there yet" from the back seat is: "Can we rent to own or do a lease-purchase?" The answer is simple: Yes. You can rent-to-own (or in other words "lease-purchase"), but... is it wise? I've been asked this question from every type of client- from those wanting to rent-to-own a $600/month cottage to those who want to lease purchase a $10,000/month luxury home.

I have several words (actually paragraphs) of wisdom to share with you. First, if you are one of the fortunate who is seeking to rent to own a high end luxury home, you should...

Whether you are looking to slow down or looking for plenty of activities and golf, Arizona's many senior living 55+ age communities have both to offer. (Photo: Seniors resting by Pasja1000 Pixabay)If you are slowing down this might fit you at the 55+ only exercise facility, "Well, I am really exhausted with that last exercise!" The Trainer responds, "That was not an exercise, it was a tour of the gym".Reaching a certain age is also cool as we have some great really "civilized" Age Restricted senior communities in Arizona. Give me a call to find one, someone of a certain age...just like you. Are you ready to move to a Full Time or Vacation Home and retire and get out of the snow or a US city with people living so densely together?

From my experience, always ask your child about the home you are thinking of Buying. Why? Have you noticed than when an adult and a kid are looking at the EXACT same thing they see things from a completely different perspective? (Photo of Family- White77 Pixabay)For example, when looking at a new home the kids may be looking at features completely differently from their parents. The kids playing on the street, the park, the swimming pool their room and the yard.Let me use this analogy.Teacher Asks A Class Room of Kids to Title this Photo: The winning title from the Kid's Perspective was, "Never Swallow Your Chewing Gum!"Same with buying a home, Mom looks at the upgraded kitchen. Dad looks at the garage and office or a multi generation home guest room. The kids go straight to the Backyar...
