The Home Partners Program
Step by step
The program is very simple: you apply on Home Partners of America’s website, and if you’re approved, we help you find the home you want in Home Partners’ Program. Home Partners buys the home and rents it to you, and you have one to three years of rent certainty with only a one-year financial commitment on the lease.
And most importantly, you can buy the home that you selected from Home Partners at a price established when you enter the Right to Purchase Agreement, in accordance with the terms of the Agreement.
This is an exciting opportunity, and we urge you to apply to the Lease with a Right to Purchase Program if you think it sounds like a good match for you. You can find more information on their website.
Apply for approval
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, Home Partners will outline the maximum Monthly Rent of the home for which the prospective resident qualifies.
Find a qualified home
Prospective residents will work with a Bridge Home Realty agent to find a home in an approved community. Once a home is identified and approved by Home Partners, Home 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.
Home Partners buys the qualified home, household leases the home
Prospective residents will be required to sign a 1 year lease for the home as well as Right to Purchase Agreement.
Household has right to purchase the home
We buy the home. You lease it and have the right to buy it later if you want to.
