For this example we will use a couple who are able to make weekly payments of $575. They have a deposit saved of $10000 and can start looking for a property on the market around $300,000.
Once they have found a home we work directly with the vendor or agent to get the home under contract. We then find the Investor to take over the Rent to Buy.
We will facilitate all the details of the contract between this couple and the investor. It has been agreed that the Rent to Buy will be for 5 years and the end purchase price for the couple will be $348,000 less accumulated Rent Credits and the deposit initially paid.
From the weekly rent of $575 it is agreed that $115 of this is a Rent Credit. At the end of the 5 years they have built up $29,900 (115 x 52 x 5) along with the $10,000 deposit which is taken off the end purchase price. They only have to pay $308,100 as they have accrued a total of $39,900 that is deducted from the purchase price.
As for the bank, if you calculate now what the value of this home will be worth after the 5 years using the 5% growth rate it comes in at $383,000. This will please the bank as you are only asking to borrow $308,000 effectively providing a deposit of $75,000, or 20%.
