Rent 2 Own Orlando has relied on third party websites to gather information contained on this site and therefore is not responsible for the completeness or accuracy of the information. Some properties which appear for sale and approved as Lease with a Right to Purchase on this website, or other sites linked to this site, may subsequently be sold or may no longer be available when official approval is issued.
We work very hard to keep information accurate and up to dated, however information may change hourly and is very difficult to be 100% accurate and updated every hour of every day. Do not apply for this program with the hopes of specific homes to lease with a right to purchase. Throughout the approval process (5 to 6 weeks from application to move in) the homes hoped for have a very high probability of being sold since they are all "For Sale" houses and are advertised to the world continuously through the web. The correct order of proceeding is to register, apply, get approved then searching for specific homes in area of choice. Doing it any other way would more than likely lead to disappointment and frustration.
