Lease Purchase Program

You may qualify for the Lease with a Right to Purchase program through Home Partners of America. This program is intended to provide qualified individuals who are not ready to buy today with a clear path to homeownership in the near future.

Making Homeownership a Reality for More People. With the help of the Russ Pence Team at RE/MAX Alliance DTC, you can find a home in a community where you want to live and lease the property for up to 5 years. You have the option of purchasing the home at any time during your residency. You have the right to purchase the home or the option of walking away without penalty at the end of your lease, and you are only obligated to a 1 YEAR LEASE term at a time, with a right to renew your lease for up to 5 years.

It’s a great option if you:

  • Want to live in a single-family home, in a great community with quality schools
  • Are a first-time homebuyer who’s cautious about buying a home now, but may want to buy in the future
  • Are a home seeker in the process of relocating but aren’t sure where you want to settle down
  • Can’t obtain a mortgage right now

The process is simple and transparent!
