Owning vs. Renting

Melissa PhotoOne of the most common and significant necessities that life offers is owning your own home.  There is always a sense of security, satisfaction, contentment and fulfilment attached to owning a house.  There is nothing sweeter in life than buying and owning your own property.

Reasons to buy instead of rent:

  1. The Mortgage Rate is Low – Currently the mortgage rates are still relatively low, and it is likely that the mortgage payment you would have if you bought a home today would be lower than the price you’d pay to rent.
  2. You build Equity – Equity is the amount of money you can sell your home for, minus the money you still owe on it.
  3. Stability – There is always a pleasant feeling attached when you have your own house.  This feeling brings a sense of freedom, independence and stability.

These are just a few reasons why it may be good idea for you to buy instead of rent your home.  But, there are many more reasons, contact me today and I’d be happy to share with you some additional benefits you may enjoy by buying your home.  I’ve also written a book, Complete Guide to Buying A Home. that I would be happy to share with you.  Feel free to send me an e-mail, or contact my office for additional information.
