Rent or Buy?

Is it better to rent or buy a house?

Considerations may include your age, stress level and investment outlook.

In light of uncertain economic conditions here are some questions you should ask yourself before you make your decision:

  • Do I want to be burdened with the stresses of home ownership
  • Do I want to invest the additional funds required to own & operate a home.
  • Do I want to pay:
    • Property Taxes
    • Property Insurance
    • Homeowners Association Fees

Maintenance costs, in particular, cannot be underestimated. If your furnace fails or a pipe leaks, you have to hire a professional … and that assumes you find someone whom you trust and with whom you feel comfortable.

There are other costs as well. As a homeowner, you may find the sudden need for a new appliance, a lawnmower, snow shovels, etc., etc. It all adds up.
