Start building equity and stop throwing away rent! You can qualify for home ownership through the MaineHomeOwnership Program, even if your credit is not good.  With a small down payment and an ability to make monthly payments, you may qualify through our lender approved system for our Lease Option Program.

A Lease Option is an opportunity to provide shelter for your family, an investment in your future, and a place to create memories.  Now is the time to take advantage of this incredible buyer's market and historically low interest rates with Maine's most trusted Lease Option program.

The MaineHomeOwnership Program offers Lease Option Purchases

With our Lease Option Program, similar to “Rent to Own” and “Lease Purchase” sales, you lock in the price of the home at the onset of the contract. However, with our Lease Option Program you have the OPTION  but not the OBLIGATION to purchase the property. This gives you a chance to experience the benfits of homeownership without having to qualify for a mortgage right away.

You will benefit from our years of experience and network of direct lenders, government backed programs, mortgage and credit repair experts. We guide you through the process of homeownership in the Lease Option Program and are with you every step of the way.
