Carod Properties is a nationally known Preferred Home Finder. We provide a vast inventory of homes that will fit the needs of anyone looking to purchase, lease option or rent a home.
Lease Option Program+
- Rent Credits: Each month part of your rent could get credited toward the purchase of your home, allowing you to build equity in your home faster than with a traditional mortgage - no more wasting all of your rent money.
- Improving Your Property: Because you may own the property soon, any improvements you do that increase the value of the property will help you build more equity for yourself.
- No banks: There are no banks to deal with until you are Ready to Purchase!
- Own Your Own Home: You enjoy the benefits owning your own home before you buy it!
- Flexibility: You have total flexibility. You have the option to buy the home, not the obligation, if you decide at the end of the lease period you don't want to buy, you can walk away with no obligations.
- Your Credit: You are creating a strong credit reference while you are renting to own! You can build your credit with on-time monthly payments while you work on restoring your credit profile.
- Instant Equity: The purchase price of the home is locked in when you enter the rent to own program. As the property appreciates, your price stays the same so you will have years of equity building up as you rent-to-own the home. The equity in the home will help you get a better deal from the lender and you can also open a home equity line for spendable cash!
Contact us to find out more about our homes in Matthews and surrounding areas and our Matthews Property Management Services.
* Your upfront payment is credited 100% toward the purchase price when you close on the home purchase. The more upfront payment you have to work with, the more likely you will qualify for one of our available homes and the easier it will be for us to acquire a home just for you.

Matthews Area Information
Nestled between Charlotte and Monroe, the area now known as Matthews was unspoiled rolling woodlands with large stands of trees. By the early 1800s, this rich and inviting land attracted our early settlers, who were mainly farmers. In the vicinity lay the trading trails and game-rich hunting grounds, ancestral homes of the Waxhaw and Catawba Indians. These farmers began clearing the land for planting around 1800. Cotton grew well and soon became the primary cash crop. As the land was cleared for planting, so many tree stumps were left standing that the early settlement was unofficially known as Stumptown.
Today, Matthews's population has grown to 28,000 citizens. Keeping pace with development in the area, Matthews's city limits now encompass 13 square miles. There are hotels, restaurants, shopping centers, recreational facilities and a hospital. In 1996, the National Register of Historic Places listed 10 downtown buildings in Matthews. Known as Matthews Commercial District, they comprise a small, but remarkably intact, collection of structures dating from the late 19th to the early 20th century. Source From Wikipedia
