Yvonne ‘Dee’ Wyatt, a former homeowner, now rents a house outside Atlanta from Promise Homes. She is working to build a notary business and hopes to own a home again.
Most landlords hope their tenants stay put and pay rent forever. Promise Homes Co. wants its renters to move out and buy their own houses.
The company has been acquiring occupied rental houses around Atlanta and northern Florida cast off by other big landlords and promoting homeownership to the tenants it inherits.
