I love the idea of investing in families and helping them achieve their goals of home ownership. Owning your own home is hands down the single best investment a family can make. But truthfully, it wasn’t until I completed my first rent to own deal (where I was the investor) that I saw the true potential this idea had to literally help thousands of credit bruised families across Canada become home owners.
I strive for win-win partnerships in life and in business and this is the core of what both Home Owner Soon and Rent To Own Investor are all about. It excites me to be able to match investors who are driven as much by the great investment as they are with the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of a family who might never otherwise experience the tremendous benefits of becoming a home owner. The most gratifying part is knowing that each time we match an investor with a tenant, a legacy is established that will last for generations to come. There aren’t many other opportunities in our lives where we get to do that.
My first exposure to Home Owner Soon was when I was a full time mortgage broker three years ago. At that point, I didn’t even know what rent to own was all about.
Being a rental mortgage specialist, I helped close rent to own deals for investors and watched as they enjoyed high rates of return held by security that I rarely saw with other real estate strategies. As more of these deals came my way, I realized I was missing a tremendous investment opportunity.
After doing my due diligence, it didn’t take me long to become a lease to own investor. These deals were quite safe compared to my buy and hold properties. In fact, I was so impressed with the business model and its ability to impact families in need, I became a partner in it as well. I currently own quite a few lease to own properties and they continue to multiply as time goes by. As a mortgage broker, my job was to obtain financing.
With the disappearance of the “B” lending world after the US credit meltdown, I was finding more and more families left with no alternatives besides walking away from their homes. At Home Owner Soon, we are combating this situation by helping many families make a better life for themselves and their loved ones by getting them out of a rental environment and into great neighbourhoods where their kids can grow up in a safe nurturing environment.
What excites me most about our program is that we have implemented a mentorship program that actually helps rebuild client credit and gets them into a better position in life because they can then borrow at a much lower rate.
That has given me a tremendous sense of self satisfaction by making a change in people’s lives one home at a time. I was taken back as the credit manager for Home Owner Soon for helping so many families make a better life for their families and loved ones by getting them out of a rental environment and getting them into a decent neighbourhood where their kids could grow.
