Step 1:

Your client finds a home they want to own.

Any home listed on the MLS or offered in a private sale can qualify.

Clients can be pre-approved and obtain a commitment before selecting a home.

Step 2:

HomeLPC buys the home in an all-cash transaction and all fees and commissions are paid. With the client’s input, HomeLPC makes any necessary repairs and improvements.

Step 3:

Your client acquires an option to buy the home any time during the term and after the first year of the lease. The option payment is as little as 5% of the cost of the home and improvements. The option may be assigned to another party by the client.

Step 4:

Your client leases the home from HomeLPC for 36 months at a fixed rent, which will never increase. In some cases, the lease can be extended. The lease requires a security and pet deposit and the first months rent to be paid at closing.

Step 5:

Your client exercises the option to buy or flip the home for a price below its appreciated value, but not less than the original cost of the home and improvements. At closing the client receives a credit for:

–   50% of the appreciation in the value of the home, determined by appraisal

– 100% of the option payment

– 100% of all security deposits

Application Process

The Road Home begins by a client providing the pre-qualification information on our site. They will hear back from HomeLPC in 48 hours.

Your client should identify you as their REALTOR and provide your name, email address and phone number. You should “accept” the email invitation you receive to HomeLPC’s Client Space.

Qualified candidates will be asked to completed an Application and if available identify the home. Monitor your client’s status and process through HomeLPC Client Space
