Your source for exemplary business services providers in the London region, each setting the standard for excellence

An entirely new way to think about homeownership
FOR SOME TIME now, the real estate market in Canada has felt increasingly split between renters and owners, as high prices, high interest rates and mortgage restrictions seemingly push the dream of home ownership further and further away for many demographics.
With generations of workers who don’t necessarily tick off the many boxes required by mortgage lenders, it’s easy to appreciate why a proven and reputable rent-to-own option is so attractive in today’s residential real estate market.
For the past nine years, London-based JAAG Properties has been helping to bridge this divide, acting as a partner to help individuals who may not qualify for a traditional mortgage — the self-employed, those repairing their credit, the upstart professionals, new Canadians — get on track to own a home of their choice.
Since its inception, JAAG has helped a growing number of people and families across Ontario get the keys to their ideal homes. One by one, JAAG has helped hundreds of clients find their dream home by providing alternative financing solutions customized to each client’s specific situation.
Whatever your circumstances, JAAG’s simple four-step Rent to Home Solution is built to help you get keys to a new home, with a certified team of experts by your side every step of the way. We’ll assist you in finding your home, building your credit score, saving for your mortgage, obtaining your mortgage and buying the home you’ve always dreamt about.
