Owning a home is a big step in someone’s life. When it comes to making the big decision, we’re here to help with the decision-making process. Here are some important points to consider when deciding whether to buy or rent a home:
• Whether you move frequently. Do you plan to stay at this location for some time?
• Whether it is more expensive to own than rent in your area. In some areas, the cost of renting isn’t consistent with the cost of owning.
• Whether you have the ability to maintain a home. Will you be able to work on the house yourself, or otherwise hire contractors to do so?
• Whether a big change is happening in your life. Will you be getting married, changing jobs, starting a new business, or having another life-changing event in the near future?
