Buying a home is no walk in the park, but depending on your circumstances, it might seem downright impossible. One common obstacle to buying a home is not qualifying for a mortgage.
To get a mortgage, you need a solid credit score and enough money to put a down deposit on the house you want to buy. For those with a poor or limited credit history or not enough money in savings, it might feel like becoming a homeowner simply isn’t in the cards. However, there is an option that might make owning possible after all: rent-to-own.
