Rent-to-buy as a viable alternative option in ‘rent or buy’ debate

October 7, 2010 Leave a comment

PBS NewsHour presented a story on September 28th entitled, ‘To Rent or Buy? Housing Market Leaves No Easy Answers.’ Jeffrey Brown interviewed both Jack Hough of SmartMoney magazine and Karl Case, who helped develop the Case-Shiller Home Price Index.

To listen to the story or view the full transcript, click here.

According to Karl Case, there is mixed evidence on whether home prices have hit bottom. Home prices peaked in 2005 and have now stopped falling. Case believes we’ve reached a bottom, but that it’s hard to know whether prices will continue to fall or stay up. Despite the uncertainty, Case remains optimistic. He discusses property as a consumer durable good; he states that benefit accrues to people just from owning it, basically tax-free, at about 6%.

Jack Hough, when asked how fragile things are, makes it clear that the worst of the price plunge is over. Though certain about the end of plunging house prices, he believes we could be in for a long period (potentially a 10 year period) of disappointing returns. According to Hough, prices are lagging behind the rate of inflation. People need to remember what the normal return for a single family home looks like, and think about inflation when making decisions about homeownership.

When it comes to the question of whether it’s better to buy or rent, Case and Hough differ in their opinions.

Case points out the positive aspects of buying. He cites, again, the fact that a house is a durable good. He encourages potential homeowners to think about the yield from their purchase (you live in it, rent-free, and non-taxable). He also reminds listeners that if your house falls in value, this is not necessarily a problem if you are planning to live in your home for a long time.

Hough makes a case for renting. He says that there is nothing wrong with buying a nice house, but that there is too much talk of single family housing as an investment coming from the government. He believes houses today are seen as form of consumption, but that homes were not designed for consumption. Hough advises potential homeowners to consider whether or not they can afford it; if they can’t afford it and don’t anticipate what actually goes into it, they should rent.

The option to rent to buy a home is not mentioned by either contributor to the PBS segment. However, it is clear that there is no consensus as to whether renting or buying is the best option, taking into consideration the state of the current economy. Rent to buy is an option that potential homeowners should seriously consider when deciding whether renting or buying is the best fit for them in their current financial circumstances.

Rent2Buy Unveils Virtual Auto Mall

September 30, 2010 2 comments

Rent2Buy.com, an online marketplace to rent or lease products with the option to buy, announced plans to launch the Rent2Buy Virtual Auto Mall in January 2011.

With the Virtual Auto Mall consumers, who are in the market to purchase a used rental car, can visit one online location and view inventory for sale from a variety of rental car companies in their area. The inventory appears in a search results matrix similar to results screens on Expedia, Orbitz and Kayak.

“The Virtual Auto Mall marries Rent2Buy’s unique ‘try-before-you-buy’ concept with a traditional auto mall,” says Moti Kahana, founder of Rent2Buy.

The Rent2Buy system allows participating rental car companies to list units for sale that are still on rent, therefore avoiding the traditional fees and time associated with a traditional auction sale. In turn, car shoppers have the option to buy the vehicle and apply the rental fee to the purchase, or simply pay the rental rate and walk away.

“Car dealers in a traditional auto mall benefit from the ability to pool resources, while the concentration of inventory and variety of brands make the auto mall a car buying destination,” says Kahana. “This type of marketing alliance empowers dealers – or in this case, rental car companies – to sell more cars with less money spent on marketing.”

If the Rent2Buy concept does not fit a particular sales situation, sellers have other solutions to offer the customer, such as rent-to-own, lease-to-buy or “make an offer” arrangements.

For more information, contact Moti Kahana at (888) 386-6660 or info@rent2buy.com.

What it means to ‘Make an Offer’ on Rent2buy.com

September 1, 2010 Leave a comment

On the Rent2buy website, the majority of items will be rent to buy, rent to own, or lease to buy. There will also be some items that are listed for sale only. We want to give you an opportunity to ‘make an offer’ on these items so you can try them out before you buy them. Next to any item on the site that is not listed specifically as rent to buy, rent to own, or lease to buy, there will be a ‘make an offer’ button. If you click this button, you can then ‘make an offer’ that will be sent to the person or store selling the item.

The opportunity to make an offer will benefit both customer and seller. For the customer, the option to make an offer means you have the freedom to create a transaction that is tailored to your needs. The customer and seller can work together on an agreement that is mutually beneficial. In the end, the customer is better off because they have had the opportunity to rent to buy, rent to own, or lease to buy an item that was originally only listed as for sale. The seller is better off because they have found a profitable way to sell or rent their item. Make an offer is just another way to connect buyers and sellers and give both parties the freedom to structure a transaction that fits their needs. Read on to learn more about how ‘make an offer’ works.

When you ‘make an offer,’ you have 3 options. You can:

1)      Make an offer to rent to buy
2)      Make an offer to rent to own
3)      Make an offer to lease to buy

Each one of these transaction types is explained in depth in previous blog posts. We will briefly explore the three ‘make an offer’ options below, and explain when each type of offer might be appropriate.

You may want to make a rent to buy offer if it is for an item that you want to try out for a short period of time before purchasing. You will be able to indicate the amount of time you want to try out the item for and how much you are willing to pay the seller in rent over that period of time.

You may want to make a rent to own offer if you want to spread out your payments over a longer period of time. An example of such a situation is the purchase of a house. You may want to ‘make an offer’ to rent to own a house if you need help financing it. Just like a rent to buy offer, you will need to indicate how much you intend to pay per month, how much interest you are willing to pay, and over what period of time you would like to make these payments. If the seller allows you to rent to own that property, you will make monthly payments over the stipulated period of time until eventually you are a homeowner.

You may want to make a lease to buy offer if you want to make smaller monthly payments. At the end of the lease contract, there will be one large balloon payment and then you will own the item you were leasing. This type of transaction is often applied to the auto industry. When signing a lease to buy contract, take note of the fine print. For example, in the case of a car: there may be extra fees if you return a car with damage or over an allotted mileage. Lease to buy is a good option as long as you are aware of what’s written in the contract and you educate yourself about what potential penalties may exist prior to entering into an agreement.

To sum up: Every item on the rent2buy website will be rent to buy. However, you are still given the option to ‘make an offer.’ This offer can be short term (rent to buy), financial term (rent to own), or balloon payment term (lease to buy).
