Many choose to rent because they assume they can’t afford a home, when the reality is that if you are paying rent, you can afford to buy. Consider these financial factors that come with renting:

  • Renewal Fees – It’s common for rent rates to increase at renewal.

  • Moving Costs – If you choose to move rather than renew your lease, you’ll need to hire movers and buy packing materials.

  • Parking Fees – Many apartments charge monthly fees to have a reserved parking stall.

  • Storage – Many renters lack sufficient storage space and end up needing to pay for storage units.

When you rent, you get little in return. Purchasing a home offers you to benefit of equity, value appreciation and tax benefits. Who do you know who we can help? We will take great care of anyone you know who is ready for their next move or may be going through the buying process for the first time. Call me today so we can start the home buying process!
