How do lease options work and what are the benefits?
If you are a seller, lease options can give you several advantages, especially in a slow market. These include a monthly rent higher than market rent, top-market value for the property and tax-free use of the option consideration until the option expires or is exercised. Also, the renter is more likely to treat the property like an owner, tax-free use of option consideration until the option expires or is exercised.
Read any lease-option arrangement carefully for details on transferring the option and other important concerns. If you have any questions feel free to contact me via e-mail or give me a call @ 508-595-9567.
