To Rent or To Buy? Our Real Estate Services Can Help.

Renting Pros:

  • Maintenance – Most rental properties prefer that you call them in the event of any needed maintenance, and they will likely cover the costs.
  • Flexibility – If you don’t plan to be in a place for long, most rental contracts are on a year by year basis, so you don’t need to try to sell when you move.
  • No property taxes – Renters don’t pay property taxes, which, depending on the area, can make up a large portion of your monthly home budget when you buy.
  • More affordable insurance – Rental insurance, especially on condos and apartments, is considerably less expensive than homeowner’s insurance.

Buying Pros:

  • Build Equity – Though the upfront costs may be steeper, it will likely pay off in the long run.
  • Acquire wealth– Even if you don’t know how long you’ll stay, you have the possibility of keeping your property as an extra source of income.
  • Stability – When a home is yours, you don’t run the risk of suddenly having rent raised or being evicted because the owners have other plans for their property.
  • Personalization – Many rental properties are picky about the way you keep their home. When you own, you have the freedom to paint, renovate, and landscape as you choose.
