Rent-to-Own Project in Detroit is well on its Way

 

The community of Detroit is working hard by building and developing tiny houses in order to help their people. The idea is that these tiny houses will offer a roof over somebody’s head at a super low rate.

Each home will look different, ranging in size from 250 to 400 square feet and will be erected on its own foundation. The project is using a rent-to-own model, with rental prices set at $1 per square foot, meaning that a 300-square-foot house would cost $300 in rent per month. Each will have its own basic furnishings and appliances, but no bedroom — so they are not meant for families.

Tenants pay their rent, capped at no more than a third of their monthly wages, and after a maximum of seven years of paying off the cost of the house, they will be owners of the home they live in.

Here’s Cass’ executive director Reverend Faith Fowler speaking about the project:
