Rent-to-own options for sheds can offer several benefits to individuals who are looking for additional storage space but may not have the immediate funds to purchase a shed outright. Here are some advantages of rent-to-own agreements for sheds:
1. Affordability: Rent-to-own allows you to spread the cost of the shed over a period of time, making it more financially manageable. Instead of paying the full purchase price upfront, you make regular rental payments, which are often lower than a self-storage facility.
2. No large upfront payment: With traditional shed purchasing, you typically need to pay a significant amount upfront. Rent-to-own eliminates the need for a large down payment, making it easier for those on a tight budget or who prefer not to tie up their available cash.
3. Flexibility: Rent-to-own agreements usually provide flexibility in terms of the duration of the rental period. You can choose a rental term that works best for you. This flexibility allows you to customize the rental period to fit your needs and financial situation.
4. No credit check: Rent-to-own sheds often do not require a credit check, which can be beneficial for individuals with less-than-perfect credit or those who have difficulty securing traditional financing options. It’s also extremely advantageous for those who are saving their credit for larger purchases, such as a vehicle or a house. Not performing a credit check allows more people to access the storage space they need without the barriers of a credit evaluation.
5. Early pay-off: If you decide to pay off the shed early, you are never obligated to keep making monthly payments. Simply request your EPO amount (early pay-off option). Once this amount is paid, your contract ends immediately and you acquire full ownership of the building! (Pro-Tip: Most customers pay off their shed after they get their tax refund!
6. Ownership at the end: One of the significant advantages of rent-to-own is that it offers you the opportunity to eventually own the shed. As you make regular rental payments, a portion of each payment goes towards the purchase price. Once you complete all the payments as per the agreement, ownership of the shed is transferred to you.
