How Long Are Most Car Leases?

Posted on May 14th 2015

When you lease a car, you are only paying the depreciation of the car during the years that you lease it. Because of this, you'll typically have lower monthly payments than if you had chosen to finance a car using the same loan terms.

Since so much of your car leasing experience will depend on the duration of the lease, you might be wondering about the typical length of leases. How long are most car leases?

Benefits of Rent-to-Own Cars Over Buy Here Pay Here

Posted on March 27th 2015

Buy Here Pay Here. If you aren't well-versed in auto industry lingo, that phrase might seem redundant. After all, when you buy something, you almost always pay for it on the spot. However, when it comes to auto financing, Buy Here Pay Here refers to dealerships that offer loans to consumers who wouldn't otherwise qualify for a traditional auto loan. So instead of paying a lender, the customer pays the dealership. Rent-to-own dealerships, on the other hand, allow customers to make weekly payments and when they've completed those scheduled payments, they will own the car they have been renting. Both of these options are commonly considered by consumers who need a car but lack cash and credit. However, there are many benefits of Rent-to-Own cars over Buy Here Pay Here. Don't believe me?

How to Rent-to-Own with Bad Credit

Posted on February 24th 2015

Did you know that credit scores have only been around for the last thirty years or so? Before they existed, obtaining credit was less strict but somewhat more personal, with credit agencies calling merchants to ask, "What do you think of John Smith?" The merchant might say kind things ("He always pays on time") or share negative opinions ("He hasn't paid in three months!"), and the creditor would decide whether to loan the money based on that personal judgment. These days, credit scores are the name of the game and they can have a huge influence on your financial life. For example, your credit score can affect your ability to purchase a car. Because of this, you might be wondering how to rent-to-own with bad credit. Is it possible? Will you need to compensate for your substandard credit score? How does the rent-to-own process work?
