As a father of two, Adam has often taken his kids along when visiting Tenant Buyers for move-in day. His kids still talk about playing with the other children in different homes. He enjoys seeing the children interacting and knows that helping his Tenant Buyers and their families will impact those kids’ future. Some Tenant Buyers have been through bankruptcy or are self-employed. Either way as they are unable to obtain a mortgage today, JAAG makes homeownership a reality for the entire family. Adam loves seeing pride that Tenant Buyers have in their homes. Tenant Buyers love and want to show off their homes and the upgrades they might have made. Their kids are excited to show off their bedrooms and their favorite spots to play hide-n-seek in the house. JAAG’s relationships with their clients are very different than the usual tenant/landlord relationship, with gratitude going both ways. You will learn about:– The foundation of JAAG Properties – How JAGG Properties is different from other RTO companies– How rent to own works– Tips on finding investors– Tenant buyer criteria– RTO Pros and Cons  Get in touch with Adam:Website: https://jaagproperties.comEmail: adam@JAAGproperties.com
