How to Sell To Rent Back?

by Eric
(Montreal, Quebec)


Have you ever seen anyone sell their house to rent it back? What would be the best way to find a real estate investor who would buy your house at market value and rent it back to the seller?

Background of the idea:
Basically, you can call me a "prepper". It's a growing movement and there are over 3 million preppers in the U.S. alone. There's even a popular t.v. show called "Doomsday Preppers."

Everyone preps for different reasons. Earthquakes, floods, pole shifts or in my case an economic collapse.

Surprisingly, I've learned in blogs that others got the idea to sell their homes, moved out to a rental and bought gold and silver with their house sale. Gold and silver is viewed as the safest store of value in an economic collapse or hyper inflation scenario.

I would like to sell my house and buy gold and silver too. In order to 100% monetise my property gains and be debt free I would have to sell, but I don't want to move. So I got the idea to rent the house back. What better tennant can an investor ask for than renting it back to the previous owner?

Any advice on how to do this would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Eric,

Thanks for the question!!

We know people who sell their homes and rent it back like this. In our area (Toronto) you would search for “Rent to Own” companies. I'm sure they exist in your area as well… if they can’t do it themselves with you they’ll often know people who can and refer you to them. Good luck!
