Rent vs. Buy?  What to do….

The forces of each side pull and tug on your thoughts figuratively.  What would make more sense now?  Or should the question be: What makes sense for my future?

Such a loaded question, right?  You’re thinking there has to be so many things that come into play…but then you think, What ARE those things anyway?

Still On The Rent Or Buy Fence?

The truth is….It really depends on your circumstances, whether they are influenced by financial or personal reasons.  

A majority of people don’t realize the following positive scenarios when you buy instead of rent:

  1. You could spend the same amount on rent as you would on a mortgage/maintenance every month
  2. You could actually save more money owning at the end of the year

One of the most important factors is to know what you can afford and understand how your debt-to-income ratio affects affordability.
