Lease-To-Own Realty Allows Renters to Buy a Home Without a Traditional Down Payment and Closing Costs

TORRANCE, CA--(Marketwire - May 14, 2008) - The owners of Torrance-based Timeshare Relief, Inc. launch Lease-To-Own Realty (L2O), creating the possibility for millions of renters to lease towards homeownership through a unique Lease to Own program with a cost and process similar to moving into a rental property.

The Lease-To-Own program offers aspiring homeowners the chance to bypass large down payments, and move right into the home of their choice! While leasing the home for up to 18 months, L2O customers are assisted with their credit to ensure that they qualify to assume the mortgage as soon as possible. There is no other program out there offering the same opportunities.

"Lease-To-Own promises to be the new non-prime mortgage loan, it being safer for both the tenant and for the lender," says Ed DeShields, President and COO of Community Empower.

As home inventories are on the rise, now is the time to buy. For potential homebuyers qualifying for home loans and coming up with down payments has become more difficult than ever before, due to the effects of subprime loans, foreclosures, and the struggling economy. Lease-To-Own Realty has the perfect solution for renters affected by the credit crunch of the subprime mortgage meltdown, as the program does not require perfect credit to start or a down payment.

"I've been helping homebuyers for 15 years. Lease-To-Own is the most comprehensive product I've ever seen," says Matthew Duffield, Vice President of Quicken Loans. "Lease-To-Own is simple, and alleviates the fear and risk associated with buying a home."
