Let your rent work towards homeownership.

Ready for a home? But not ready for a down payment? Now there's a third option between renting and owning.

Move into the home you want, pay a monthly rent that builds towards a future down payment, and buy the home whenever you are ready -- whether that's in 3 months or 3 years.

Step inside a ZeroDown home
It's like a subscription to homeownership.
How it works
1
Look for your new home
Go shopping for homes with a ZeroDown partner agent. Have your own agent you want us to work with? No problem, just let us know!
2
ZeroDown buys a home on your behalf
Once you select a qualifying home, ZeroDown buys it with a cash offer. We cover all related fees and taxes. You'll provide only a 2-3% Starter Payment.
3
Move in
Move into your dream home. You'll pay a monthly rent. With each rent payment, you'll earn Purchase Credits (think of this as your future down payment savings) for the home.
4
Buy when you're ready
Over the next 3 years, you can buy the home using the Purchase Credits you've been earning each month. If you decide you don't want the home, you can walk away from the deal when your lease ends.

How does it work?

Rent to own is not a typical mortgage or regular lease. ZeroDown buys the home you want, you move in with no down payment, then you pay a monthly rent (that does not change) until you want to buy the home. Each month, you earn Purchase Credits (think of this as future down payment savings) that you can use to eventually buy the home.
