Nearly 20% of all income earners in Canada are self-employed. Despite the growing demographic of self-employed earners, it remains notoriously difficult for them to qualify for a mortgage. Proving income isn’t always easy when you work for yourself, and lenders often require a 10% down payment for self-employed earners.
If you are self-employed and have trouble qualifying for a mortgage, you aren’t alone. Fortunately, our Rent to Home Solution can help self-employed Canadians reach their goal of homeownership sooner.
With rent to own, you’ll work towards building a positive credit score and save money for your down payment, all while living in your home!
Rent to own agreements work by allowing you to move into your new home immediately and rent it from us for a set term, usually 3 years, with the intention of purchasing the home at the end of the term. During your term, with the help of our experienced rent to own team, you’ll improve your credit score and save money for a down payment so that you can qualify for a traditional mortgage.
With JAAG’s Rent to Home Solution, there’s no need to worry about missing out on your dream home. All you need is a plan, and our team is excited to get started on building a strategy that works for you.
