Lease for up to 3 years, building equity credits every month.
A minimum required down payment of 2%. So for instance, if you’d like to lease a $100,000 home, you must put at least $2,000 down. Our overall minimum down payment is $1,300, which corresponds to our most affordable home options.
What happens to my down payment?
Your down payment becomes equity credits in your home. It is not a fee in any way. If you have a 2% Down Payment you will have 2% equity credits.
Lease To Own
Your Right to lease to own gives you the right to purchase the home you select from the program with your 2% or greater down payment. Buy the home back! Provide up to a 10% down payment with no additional costs or money down from you. 3 year lease program, unless you choose to buy the home earlier, in which case the program ends. Otherwise, your lease obligation is 3 years long.
Please sign up below if you believe you meet all the qualifications below. You must be able to comfortably afford your monthly payment. Your monthly payment will have 3 components:
Rent (about 70% of your monthly payment)
Equity credits (about 25% of your monthly payment)
Maintenance funds (about 5% of your monthly payment)
What homes are available to lease with Divvy?
Almost all homes on the market! We allow you to choose from homes currently for sale in your area. You aren’t choosing from a small group of homes that we already own.
NOT able to purchase and lease the following:
Non-bank-approved short sales
Homes with serious maintenance issues
Manufactured or mobile homes
Undeveloped lots and pre- or mid-construction homes
What if I need to leave during the 3 year lease?
You can end your lease by buying the home at any point. If you do not buy the home, you are obligated to lease your home for the full 3 years. If you stop making payments, your lease will be considered broken, and can only refund 50% of the total dollars of equity credits.
What do I need to pay to make an offer?
No application or offer fees!
In order to make an offer, you’ll send Divvy 10% of your down payment, to be held in escrow. So for a $2,000 down payment, you’ll send Divvy $200. The remaining $1,800 would be due when the closing process concludes and your lease starts. If the home does not close or our offer is rejected, $200 would be refunded. Close in as little as two weeks!
How long does this all take?
Our approval process is extremely fast. Once you’re done submitting our required documents, we can pre-approve you the very next day!
Closing on a home, once you’ve made a choice, takes between 1-5 weeks, again often depending on your preferences, as well as those of the seller.
Overall, we recommend you apply 2-3 months before you plan to move. This gives you time to address any issues that come up during the approval process, just in case. But if you’re moving soon, don’t worry we can move as fast as you can!
What happens if the customer chooses NOT to buy the home at the end of the 3-year lease agreement?
If the tenant chooses not to buy the home at the end of the 3-year lease, will sell the home. We’ll cash out the customer’s equity credits and share 8.5% of the home’s final sale value (we need to deduct 1.5% to cover selling costs).
