Rent-to-own opens a new path for aspiring homeowners in northern Ontario

ORIGINAL ARTICLE, Angela Gemmill, CBC News, July 12, 2022

When Maria and Jose Andrade arrived in Canada in January 2021 they didn’t have any credit scores in this country. That made it difficult to try to get a mortgage for a house in Sault Ste Marie, Ont., where they decided to settle.

Jose started looking for options and found Requity Homes, which offers a rent-to-own program. It wasn’t long before the couple moved into their dream home in September 2021.”We think that was the best thing we ever could do,” Maria said.

New path to home ownership

Requity Homes first started in Sudbury, North Bay, Sault Ste Marie, and Thunder Bay. They have since expanded to Saskatoon and Regina, Sask. The Canadian real estate start-up business is working to help first-time home buyers move into homes using a rent-to-own model.

At Requity Homes, we believe in the power of homeownership. Owning a home is so much more than just having a roof over your head. It’s a place to call your own, to raise a family, and to build wealth.

Yet, too many families find themselves on the outside looking in, feeling stuck renting. Rising home prices, stagnating wages, and tightening mortgage requirements have left many unable to achieve their homeownership dreams.

We started Requity Homes with just that problem in mind.  We are creating an alternative path to homeownership to bridge that gap.
