Monthly Payment Estimator

Payments are Estimated by taking the sales price and times it by 00.00825% per every $100,000 in sales price.EXAMPLE: $180,000 x 00.00825 = Monthly Payment: $1485.00 total. This is an estimate only. The property taxes and HOA (if any) are an unknown variable so we can not give an exact amount, this is for example purposes only. The rent factor may be within the range of 00.00750 – 00.00850. You will get the exact amount in writing once fully approved as a tenant and you identify a home.

The investor pays the property taxes, loan payment/interest and property Hazard insurance.
(Home Owners association dues are not included and you must insure your personal goods)

The sales price is the Original Price your Leske Realty agent negotiates between the investor and the home seller PLUS the appreciation fee (Estimated at 3% this can be more or less. See your rent to own contract for the specific details) for investor participation, which is added annually until the home is paid off.
Any value appreciation above the appreciation and total investor investment (including closing costs, tenant requested home repairs etc.) is yours to keep as profit. This is an estimate only.
The appreciation fee is subject to investor terms and may change and be different from what is represented on this web site. Investors will provide the exact terms upfront in writing before any commitment is made and the investor will not buy the home until everything is fully agreed to in writing.
Question and Answers
Leske Realty’s Rent to Own program ***NEW for 2016*** now only requires $3000-$5000 based on home sales price. Your specific rent to own deposit terms may be different based on investor requirements. Please look carefully at your lease documents to verify the deposit rates and if there are or are not any credits. Your final paperwork is the contract agreement. This website illustrates various terms that different investors offer that we currently or have used in the past.
The Investor charges an appreciation fee (Typically 3% compounded annually) based on the purchase price of the home for completing the RENT TO OWN home purchase.  This is added to the sales price when you complete the purchase. There is the initial purchase closing costs and any repairs that you may have requested that will be added to the final price as well. The investor will give you a complete breakdown of all expenses upfront before they buy the home and before you agree to anything. There are NO FEES to apply or to get qualified for RENT TO OWN.
If you decide, for whatever reason, you do not wish to pursue the financing and purchase of the home from the investor within the initial 6 year period, you may elect to cancel the agreement at any time. Until you buy the home, you are just the tenant subject to your signed lease contract and your rights as a tenant.
Scams Alerts
    A person off the street “Not the Home Owner” Run ads to Rent a home and collect the security deposit. The deposit is typically mailed to an anonymous address. The home is advertised WAY UNDER MARKET RENT to look attractive.
    A Home Owner offers Rent to Own terms that are hard to understand and once calculated the buyer/tenant discovers that the home will be underwater before the term is over and then they never complete the transaction and the home owner gets the home back and keeps the LARGE deposit and does it again and again and again.

Client Says-We would like to take this opportunity...

    • We would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation for the exceptional job our realtor, Mr. Donald Leske has done with our recent real estate transactions. Mr. Leske has successfully helped us complete three real estate transactions in a relatively short time span beginning since November 2001. Bob and I were married in January 2002 and
      timing was of the utmost importance in selling his house, my house and most importantly, purchasing our new home.During our association with Mr. Leske, we have been impressed and pleased with his professionalism, courtesy, and attention to details and knowledge of the real estate business. We have appreciated his promptness and his flexibility while working around our busy schedules. Both Don and Sarah have treated us both like we were their most valued clients and were very accessible as they communicated and constantly updated us on our progress. Last of all, we were especially pleased with Mr. Leske’s work on Melinda’s house. It sold for greater than our asking price and Don’s superb organizational skills and attention to detail made it a painless and satisfying transaction. Mr. Leske is to be commended for a job well done, and we highly recommend him to any potential home buyer/seller.

      Bob & Melinda

    • We would like to express our thanks and gratitude to Mr. Don Leske and his team for the successful sale of our home in Kent. We were very pleased with his services in every way. We started out by interviewing three top agents in the area.We chose Don because he clearly stood out as the best choice of options based on price and the timeframe we needed to sell. His marketing strategy was thorough and he came well prepared to our interview. He presented himself with an air of confidence and honesty with a “can do” attitude. Of course, his guarantee to sell in 45 days was a deciding factorBesides Mr. Leske’s competence and thorough knowledge of selling real estate in the area, we like him on a personal level also. Don’s tact when dealing with sticky situations and his calm and positive nature helped to keep us assured throughout the whole process. Don always looked and acted in a professional manner. The best part of all, Don delivered on all of his commitments to us. We were completely satisfied with his accomplishments. We know that Mr. Leske got us the best price in the quickest amount of time possible. He also demonstrated the patience of a saint by assisting us through our anxiety and our non-understandings. For example, he had to explain the closing costs several times to us and he did so pleasantly and successfully without getting frustrated. Everything was first class. So thank you Don and your
      team for selling our house. Please use us as a reference in the future. We also will not hesitate to recommend the Leske Team to anyone we know that is selling their home.

      Diane & Noah

    • Thank you so much for your professional courtesy and results in the sale of my mother’s home in Puyallup. As you know,she passed away last year and the heirs were left with the task of selling the residence. As five of the six siblings were located out-of-state, I recognized immediately that a local professional realtor would be required to sell the house. I also recognized that this person would have to be of high integrity and have good work ethics in order for the transaction to occur in a reasonable amount of time. Being a real estate appraiser, I have seen many out-of-the state ownership problems with real estate sales. Your company and you specifically smoothed out all the bumps in the road to selling this home and did so in a polite courteous manner. Never once was I put off or put “on the back burner”. You answered all my
      questions and concerns very responsibly. Additionally, you used the e-mail for photographs, correspondence, and information, which sped up the entire closing process. Thank you Don for a job well done.J. Corak
    • Our Agent was right with us the whole way; he made the whole process stress free. He was very helpful to the end. If it wasn’t for Don Leske I would have never gotten my house sold and gotten the house of my dreams. Hats off to the Leske Team.Kimberly
    • Our Agent was friendly and professional, he kept us updated every step of the way. I am so glad we listed with Don Leske instead of For Sale by Owner; he made us an additional $38,000.00.Amber & Daniel
    • I am in the retail business and the Leske Team all worked together to make my selling experience a great one! They listened to my needs and did it with class and style. A++!Mr. & Mrs. Lawrence

    • As a military veteran and one who has worked his whole life giving to others I want to take this opportunity to thank you all for what you have given to me. This experience has been one of the best if not the best experience I have ever had working with such amazing professionals. This whole purchase has went seamless and smooth and I have had so much support from all of you that I didn’t have a chance to even think this wouldn’t be possible. Thank you so much for making the dreams of my first home come true. This has truly been a pleasant and non stressful event from day one. All of you realized the frustration in my voice or emails and absolutely made sure to take that worry and frustration off of me and make it your own.

Thank you once again.Jim Steele Baydo Chevrolet SGT, U.S. Army (ret) Proud home owner

    • “We wanted our first home to be a dream come true. We tried several real estate agencies and have never felt that our needs were being listened to. When going to the Leske Team, we instantly felt at home and had an instant relationship with our agent. He was genuine to our thoughts and was very honest about the floor plans and areas we had looked at.

He was always available for questions and always returned my phone calls and emails promptly. Don was always in my corner, making sure that things proceeded in a way that was always to

      our new home, and I feel very comfortable to recommend the Leske Team to all my friends and family, which I have already done.Phil & Deborah
    • I am a very picky buyer on a limited budget. I am an agent’s worst nightmare. The Leske Team is awesome and listened to what my wife and I were looking for and went to work finding us our home. Every home they sent us via e-mail was one that we would be interested in. We finally made an offer on a house and we got it. During the closing process, there were complications with the seller. Most agents at this point would have given up, but that is when the Leske Team went to work, they ironed out all the problems before I even knew what had happened. They are a wonder of action, and they have won my respect, and anyone doing business with the Leske Team is lucky. The Leske Team wanted what was best for us and never tried to rush a sell. I would recommend them to anyone.Dallas & Leah
    • The Leske Team did an excellent job of making my home buying process very professional and stress free, it was a good feeling. Knowing that they were there looking out for my best interests and just not there for a paycheck. It was very much appreciated and I look forward to working with them again in the future.Our Agent effectively listened to our needs and respected our position in the marketplace. Our agent aggressively pursued all aspects of the home buying process for us and was there to support us from start to finish.

      Rick & Kate

    • Right from the beginning the Leske Team knew they would be handling a challenging case as our credit was not too good. Don knew what we wanted to pay in a house payment and helped us to reach that goal. We also got to deal with Sarah and again were knowledgeable. Thank you Leske Team for helping us to find our brand new dream home. We never believed that we could get financed for a home after we fell onto some very hard times. After hearing the Leske ad on the radio (saying they can help anyone), we called and spoke with Don.Wow! It was great working with the Leske Team as they were very knowledgeable in all areas of finding and purchasing a home. After seeing a few houses we soon discovered that Don was very approachable and helpful without being overbearing. Don was accommodating with our crazy work hours and only missed one opportunity to show us a home, but
      due to the great teamwork at the Leske Team, Sarah stepped up to the plate and showed us the home that we purchased.

      The only problems that we had during buying the home, was from the seller’s realtor and Don was great at resolving every one of these issues. We look forward to dealing with you in the future!
