Rent vs Own: What You Need to Know to Make a Wise Choice

February 27, 2020

Check out this graphic from the website, "Keeping Current Matters" regarding renting vs owning your own home.

Some Highlights:

  • Owning your own home vs. renting may lead to some great options, such as locking in your monthly payments and having the freedom to customize your living space.
  • Big tax advantages – your mortgage interest may be tax deductible.This alone could be enough to save you thousands in federal income tax.
  • Your pets!  We love our fur babies and some apartments do not allow pets and surely do not include much of a yard to let them run.
  • Whether you rent or own, you have to cover someone’s mortgage costs. You may as well be doing so to build your own wealth, rather than that of your landlord.
  • Renting and owning both have up-front fees when you sign your lease or close, respectively. Think about putting that money to work for you!

I would like to recognize Shane Hall for his exceptional service. Shane did a good job of keeping us updated on everything, and he was easy to get in touch with. Even after we moved in, when we had questions about the warranty, he still helped us out and stayed in touch with us even though it wasn't really his job.
