Stuck in Your Lease?

Robert J. Ott
November 30, 2022

Stuck in your lease and want to buy a house. You may have options to get out of that lease to purchase your new home! Here’s the thing: the answer is always “no” unless you ask. And there’s zero risk exploring your options, right!?Today during your lunch break, grab your phone and call, text or email your landlord and ask him or her if you have any options or opportunities to “break” your lease. There may be a waiting list for your unit, maybe you could sublet or offer to help find a new tenant?!* And what if. Just WHAT IF your answer was YES!?!!!!Your idea of having to “wait out your lease” was just crushed—in a GOOD WAY! All because you asked‼️If you’re unsure of what to say or how to say it please reach out to us. We’ve helped a quite a few clients guide their way through this process and are very willing to help you as well! Shoot us a message, we’re an open book and love talking to people just like you when it comes to renting —> owning! FINE PRINT: there’s no guarantee that you can get out of a lease early without paying penalties. Those penalties are typically defined by your lease and can include one or more months of your lease or other monetary compensation to the landlord. But again if you never ask you never know.

PMI -- it's like the loathed word when purchasing a home because perception is, is that it's another added cost on top of mortgage and unaffordable. GUESS WHAT?! We owned our last home 2 years ago. We had well over 20% to put down on it to not have PMI, but decided that it was actually cheaper to pay the monthly PMI than to use up all of our cash in a down payment. PMI can actually work in your advantage if you look at it the right way. ↓ (and it has to make sense for you, we recognize every person and every financial situation is different).

Airbnb or long term rental? It’s a question we’re fielding more often with our 2nd time buyers, investors and homeowners. While each makes complete sense, there’s a few things you’ll want to personally weight out. We have clients who have gone either direction with their personal or investment home - either converting it into a long term rental or using it as an Airbnb - and have had a lot of success with both.
