History / Statistics:
Guelph’s growing, diverse community of 120,000 people is a major draw for people in the agriculture and life sciences research world, as well as those who work in advanced manufacturing, tech, and environmental technology. Plus, with a location 100km away from Toronto and a world renowned research university and the University of Guelph, it’s easy to understand why people want to move to the Royal City.
For many would-be homeowners, there is one wrinkle. Since the housing crisis, the Canadian government and Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation have made it significantly harder to get a mortgage. The lending standards are getting steadily stricter, because the regulators want to prevent a Canadian real estate bubble.
This may be good for the Canadian real estate industry in the long term, but it also means that many people who would have sailed through the mortgage approval process a few years ago now find the process to be an uphill fight. In many cases these homeowners are simply unable to get a mortgage from a traditional lender.
As wonderful as an “approval” is, to be “denied” seems utterly devastating. Taught that they must finance a home either via a bank or a credit union, not being able get mortgage can seem like being told they cannot buy a home.
How Rent to Own Guelph Solves This Problem
Fortunately, it’s not true that homeowners are limited to financing their homes with banks or credit unions. Alternate financing is available, and certain kinds of lenders do not necessarily care about your credit score.
The solution is HOS Financial Rent to Own Guelph program. It offers Guelph homeowners a chance to move in to the property they want now, and put a portion of their monthly rent towards a down payment on buying the house at the end of the term.
It is important to realize Home Owner Soon will not accept you as a client unless we believe we can help you. We have many years of experience working with homeowners and we know many different ways to bring you back to good “credit health.” However, it would not be helping you in the long run to simply find you short-term financing if we could not also help you out of the “bad credit hole.”
Therefore, we have a 9-step system to ensure the Rent to Own does not have a “catch” and that there will be no “surprises” for you. In fact, part of the Program requires that you have your attorney review the contract — this makes sure your interests are protected, and that you fully understand how it will work.
