Units are typically leased out at market rates with an additional rent-to-own fee tacked on each month. That fee varies, but it’s usually anywhere from 10 to 15% of the monthly rent. For instance, a unit that would rent for $1200 on the open market may cost a rent-to-own lessee $1350 per month, with the $150 difference put aside in an escrow account. Any funds collected in the escrow account can usually then be used toward the purchase of the home if the tenant decides to exercise their option to buy. Otherwise, the funds are forfeited to the owner at the end of the lease term. Using the same example as above, this would result in $5400 collected over a 3-year lease period, which the tenant could put toward closing costs or a down payment on the home.
For instance, a section of the downtown area known as the Las Vegas Art District encourages creativity in the arts. The Las Vegas National History Museum presents the smarter side of the city, and many students are securing their education from the University of Nevada’s Las Vegas campus. There are also some alternative educational options in the city, including the Las Vegas Army Air Corps Gunnery School and the Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts.
