Is Buying Right for Me? Renting vs. Buying

You may not believe a real estate agent is about to say this, but no - it is not always better to buy instead of rent. As a true professional, it is my job to counsel you, taking into account your individual circumstances, and help you make an informed decision. My job is not to rush you into a closing.

Thanks for being honest! When is it better to rent?

  • If you are NOT going to live in the house over 2 or 3 years. Having to sell soon after you buy, might require paying the commission out of your pocket. The house will not have appreciated enough to cover that expense in a year or so.
  • Houses require maintenance; some require a lot of maintenance. You have to decide if you are the type of person who likes to do yard work and paint, etc. Purchasing a townhome or a condominium is an alternative choice for people who don't like a lot of upkeep but still want the advantages of ownership.

What are some of the benefits of buying instead of renting?

  • Tax breaks - Interest paid on your mortgage can be tax deductible.
  • Building equity - With every payment you are building equity in your home.
  • More space
  • Able to decorate more to your liking
  • Your own yard
  • A sense of stability
