Buy Your Dream Home

How does this all work? We're glad you asked.

ROU Realty is leading the evolution of home ownership with our unique Rent-Back Program. This program allows you to recover your last year of apartment rent (up to $25K) to be applied toward the purchase of a qualified home. 
BONUS: We'll connect you with our mortgage partners who not only ensure a smooth process, but also have the ability to help you close with zero out of pocket cost!

Rent-Back Program FAQ

Simple! 1. Sign ROU’s tenant agreement. We know, sounds heavy, but it isn’t! This doesn’t lock you into ANYTHING; it just outlines the terms of the Rent-Back credit. Decide you’re not interested? Throw it out. The end! 2. When you tour properties, tell the leasing agent that assists you that you were referred by your ROU agent and when you decide to apply, list your ROU agent’s name on your application.

Your ROU agent is going to be your best resource for this! Likely, they’re going to recommend checking your credit and debt to income ratios with a lender to get a full picture of where you stand today and any steps you may need to take to position yourself for your dream home.

Most anywhere in DFW! The Rent-Back program isn’t funded by individual properties, so there’s no restrictions on where you can lease.

This depends on which home you decide to buy. Both options are outlined below. 1. If you buy a home from one of our qualified builders, you’re eligible for up to $25K, which comes directly from their profits. 2. For all other homes, you’re eligible for a credit of up to 2% of the purchase price (i.e. $6K on a $300K home), which comes directly from our Real Estate agent commission.

We can help! We can offer up to 2% of the purchase price of a home for clients that haven’t worked with us to lease a property.

Yep, it does! We have townhomes and condos that fit into our program, as well.

That’s ok! The agreement is valid for 26 months to redeem your last twelve months of rent back. If you still aren’t ready after year 2, the contract renews every time you lease through us.

Nope! You can use the rent-back program with any lender. We do have a preferred lender we recommend because of their offerings, experience, and customer service (100% financing program, etc.)

You can absolutely still use our locating services to confirm you’re getting the best deal and utilize our Rent-Back program!

Nope! There’s no cost to your landlord, so no additional rent for you!

Both you and your roommate are eligible for the FULL amount of your 12 months of rent back for your own individual home purchases! That’s right, the credit doubles!
