Key takeaways: 

“The benefits for tenant-buyers of our program is, they’re picking the house and we’re buying it right for them, they’ll know their set purchase price. That’s a great scenario and the rents won’t increase.” – Kevin McHardy 

 “As a rental operator the benefits for us would be obviously great, great, great returns of monthly cash flow is a big one and also the sale price so there’s a good amount of built-in appreciation so we know the sale price at the end” – Kevin McHardy 

“We’ve got a third-party company work outside of our mortgage. Depending on their credit score (tenant-buyer), we’ll set them up and we’ll build that cost into the programs to help them out to really make sure that we can achieve the homeownership at the end.” – Kevin McHardy
