We understand that owning a home is a big decision. Start by renting your dream home and buy at any point. Or simply walk away with no penalties.
What you see is what you get! The rents listed are what you pay, no matter what. Plan ahead with rents and a purchase price that are guaranteed for 5 years.
Unlock access to hundreds of homes for sale and find the one that is right for you. With us, your options are open, and the choice is yours.
Prospective residents start the process by filling out a Pre-Qualification Application that checks key issues.*
*Anyone who is 18 years or older and will reside in the home must complete both the Pre-Qualification and the Full Application.
If the Pre-Qualification Application is approved, the applicant will be required to submit a Full Application for a full credit and background check.
If a Full Application is approved, then we will outline the maximum Monthly Rent of the home for which the prospective resident qualifies.
Prospective residents will work with a REALTOR® from the Carte Homes Team to find a home in an approved community.
Once a home is identified and approved by Our Partners, Our Partners will attempt to purchase the home -- the outcome of which will depend on certain conditions being met such as agreeing on a purchase price with the seller, a satisfactory inspection, attorney review of the purchase contract, and other closing conditions being satisfied.
To see if a home not listed on the website is in an approved community, please send me the address to check.
Prospective residents will be required to sign a one year lease for the home as well as the Right to Purchase Agreement ( Lease, Deposit details and Escrow)
The initial term of the Lease is generally one year, and the Lease automatically renews every year as long as the resident is in compliance with the Lease and Right to Purchase Agreement. Each year, the resident has the right to give notice that he/she does not want to renew the Lease for another year. If for any reason the resident decides to leave the home at the end of a Lease term and is in compliance with the Lease, the full security deposit will be returned.
The resident's financial commitment is limited to the initial term of the Lease. The resident does not have to renew the Lease after the initial term. The maximum number of years of the Lease is five.
Over the life of the Lease, subject to applicable laws, Our Partners expects residents to treat the home as their own, maintain the lawn and garden, remove snow or debris, and complete minor repairs.
The resident's Right to Purchase Agreement (and therefore Right to Purchase) is in effect as long as the Lease is in effect, and the resident is in compliance with these two agreements.
The Right to Purchase Agreement gives the resident the right to purchase the home from Our Partners at a predefined price for each year of the Lease, as long as the resident is in compliance with the Lease and the Right to Purchase Agreements. The maximum number of years a resident can rent the home and have the Right to Purchase is five years. The Right to Purchase does not obligate the resident to buy the home.
The purchase price in your Right to Purchase, as set at the time you enter into the lease, will include an adjustment equal to $2,500 (a “Maintenance Adjustment”). If you choose to purchase the home, and the maintenance costs covered by the Maintenance Adjustment actually incurred by Our Partners during the lease are less than the Maintenance Adjustment, the purchase price of the home at closing will be reduced by the unused amount of the Maintenance Adjustment.
The Maintenance Adjustment generally may be used to cover the cost of any repairs, renovations, replacements or improvements to the home that Our Partners determines are necessary or appropriate during your lease term. Examples of the costs for which the Maintenance Adjustment may be used include the replacement of a major mechanical system (e.g., HVAC, furnace, roofing) or the repair of appliances, plumbing or fixtures. Our Partners generally is responsible for costs of home repairs in excess of the Maintenance Adjustment and those excess costs will not increase the purchase price for the home.
However, the Maintenance Adjustment does not limit your responsibility for any costs for which you would be responsible under the terms of the lease. Examples of these costs are costs due to your misuse of the home, your willful or negligent conduct, or your failure to comply with the lease. Our Partners may require you to pay these other costs separately in accordance with the terms of your lease.
Your rent is not affected by the Maintenance Adjustment, and the Maintenance Adjustment does not affect you unless you purchase the home. For example, if Our Partners pays repair costs of $2,500 during the lease term that are covered by the Maintenance Adjustment, and you choose not to buy the home, you will not be required to reimburse Our Partners for those amounts.
Generally within 48 hours of a seller accepting Our Partners' offer for the purchase of a home, prospective residents will be required to sign the Lease and the Right to Purchase Agreement and provide the deposit, all to be held in escrow, pending the closing of the purchase of the home by Our Partners
Prospective residents will have an opportunity to review all documentation, and Our Partners encourages all prospective residents to consult with legal and tax advisors to review such documents and the transaction prior to signing any documents.
