If you are looking for lease purchase houses Metro Detroit, you are not alone. Many Metro Detroit homes for sale by owners and agents advertise a lease option or "rent to own", but not all of these plans are the same. They are becoming increasingly popular, but you may find that you do not qualify for some.

The power of the lease purchase is that you can get into a home even if you have past credit issues. As long as you have a job, a small down payment or option consideration, and can afford the monthly payments, a lease purchase may allow you to realize the American dream of home ownership.

For those who are interested in lease purchase houses Metro Detroit is a good place to look. At the moment there are literally thousands of Metro Detroit homes for sale. This is good news for buyers, but could be bad news for sellers, particularly those who need to sell quickly to avoid foreclosure.

Lease purchase is a good idea for people with past credit issues, small down payments or for anyone that wants to stop wasting their money on rent and make a real investment in their future. It is also a good idea for people who need to sell quickly.

If you currently own one of the Metro Detroit homes for sale and are tired of waiting for a buyer, you should know that there are unique options to consider. One plan is to help the tenant-buyers improve their credit, making it possible for them to qualify for a conventional mortgage during the lease purchase term.

This is a powerful strategy some real estate investors for lease purchase houses Metro Detroit are using in this current market.

In the depressed Michigan housing market, investors are now able to buy bank owned properties for les than 25 cents on the dollar. Once re-habbed, the houses are HUD-appraised. If such a home is purchased by a senior, 62 or older, who is approved for a reversed mortgage, this senior can now be a proud home owner without ever having to make house payments again. The investors are willing to provide a private mortgage or land contract on the home while the senior obtains the reverse mortgage.

Isn't this a great program?! A senior with job loss or income reduction can now own a home without making any mortgage payments*. This senior can now not only be a proud home owner, but also increase his or her financial independence and have cash available for a higher style of living.

*The senior still has an obligation to pay for home insurance and property taxes.

Reason # 1 The Motor City

Maybe I'm a little bit biased since I come from Detroit, but I think that Detroit is a great reason to visit Michigan. Ignore, for a moment, the decrepit old houses and deteriorating neighborhoods, and think of the city's rich, vibrant culture and historical landmarks. Detroit is home to "The Big 3" and "Motown" after all. I don't care how much negative press you've heard about the city, don't tell me that you haven't driven a Big 3 car or been in love with a Motown song. The city's current decline is certainly no reason not to visit. Just be sure to keep your doors locked.(That was a joke, by the way).

Reason # 5 The Sports Teams

So, the Detroit Lions haven't done so well in the past few years. The Tigers almost made it to the World Series this year. The NBA is in the middle of a lockout, so we won't mention the Detroit Pistons. The Red Wings are probably the most consistent team we have, and although I don't follow hockey, it seems like they're winning the Stanley Cup every other year.

Plus, there are all of the college teams - the Big House (University of Michigan) is one of the most popular sporting venues in the country.
