Purchase Option Strategy Explained
Play • 13 min

In the first of a five-part mini-series all about purchase options and purchase lease options, Simon examines the purchase option strategy, and discusses why you should be using them as part of your property investing toolkit, which strategies they can be used, and when to use them most effectively.


  • The Purchase Option strategy is where you as the buyer have a contract stating that you have the right to buy their property, but not the obligation to purchase.
  • The Purchase Lease Option strategy is where you as the buyer agree to lease a property from a buyer for a monthly fee, with the right to buy by a future date, with no obligation to do so.
  • A purchase lease option can alleviate the financial burden of a property for a set amount of time, meaning that it is incredibly attractive to a buyer looking for a swift way to free up finances.
  • Lease options are a win-win for all parties. The seller is able to instantly offload a property, while you as the seller can turn an instant profit by using the property as a rental for profit, while also enjoying the increase in value as the lease option period runs its course.


'Options must always be assignable'

'You're babysitting - you're looking after their mortgage for them'

'You've really got to put yourself in the shoes of the seller and see it from their point of view'

'There are lots of reasons why someone may want to sell a property, but they're okay with not selling it right now'
