How you can accumulate equity 500% faster than with a mortgage

by Jeff Beaubien

You simply will not find a faster way to accumulate equity in a home than with the Lease 2 Purchase contract. The three examples below cannot be disputed, they prove what I say is true. Study them -- then put them to work for yourself!

Example 1

A comparison of the rate of equity accumulation in a one-year period between renting, owning, and Lease 2 Purchasing based on the following example:

You find a nice home in a nice part of town. The sales price is $100,000. You convince the landlord/seller to Lease 2 Purchase it to you. You put down $3,500 (3.5%) as an option deposit which is credited 100% towards the purchase of the home when you buy it, plus first month's rent, which is $1,000. Each month you receive a $250 (25%) rent credit towards the purchase of the home.

Assume that if the landlord/seller was only interested in renting it, the fair market rent is $1,000 per month and that he would want first and last month's rent plus a security deposit of $1,000 as a down payment.

Assume also that the mortgage company's interest rates are at 8% and the smallest down payment they offer is 5% of the sales price. Taxes, insurance and private mortgage insurance (PMI) are $303 per month. Closing costs and prepaids typically cost about $3,000 for a $100,000 home.
