Lease Purchase Options Boost Real Estate Recovery in Lake Charles, LA

Real Estate Agent with Marilyn Boudreaux, Century 21 Mike D. Bono & Co.'s 0912122870 LA


I just negotiated a lease/purchase on one of my listings in Lake Charles, LA.  Lease/Purchases can be handled many different ways.

In my recent transaction, the buyer was not in a situation to purchase the home and close in 30 days so the seller was open to negotiating a lease purchase.  In instances like this a Lease is drawn up and executed for a certain period of time with all terms being negotiated between Lessor and Lessee.  The REALTOR enters into the picture  when it becomes time to execute the purchase contract.  It is easy if you can complete all the paperwork at one time.



One of the stipulations in the lease/purchase I just completed was that the buyer go ahead and complete the buyer's home inspection.  The inspection and repair outcome was completed up front and negotiated between the Lessor and the Lessee. When the time comes to purchase the home, several months from now, the home inspection period is done and all that needs to be obtained is the buyer's financing.  The lease and inspection are attached as addendums to the Purchase Contract.  Everything is executed all at one time including obtaining the deposit check  which is held in escrow by the listing Broker until time of closing.

Lease Purchase is just another way that Real Estate Recovery is alive and well in Lake Charles contributing to a healthy and stable real estate market.

Hi Marylin,

Excellent way to show a great and innovative way for people to either enter the market and for sellers to sell their property.

Until the banks and lenders get their act together this is a very good way to bridge times of uncertainty and create oppotunities and real estate recovery in Lake Charles.

This is how you as the professional really make a big difference in offering solutions where others may see a brick wall.....

Hi Marilyn - lease options are a good part of real estate recovery for Lake Charles - can be a great solution when a buyer finds a home that he is ready, willing, but not quite able to buy.  Negotiating the repairs right away is just smart.  I will add that to my list.
