Buying vs. Renting

We all know the American dream; having a big house, nice car, happy family, yada yada. But what are the perks to buying vs. renting, or vice versa?

Let’s start with the obvious ones…


  • You can move as often or as little as you’d like
  • You can rely on your landlord or management company to make repairs


  • You can paint/decorate however you’d like
  • Make improvements that benefit you and not the landlord
  • You can control how long you want to live there
  • Get whatever pet you’ve always wanted (so long as it’s legal, come on now…)
  • You can throw parties and not have to worry about disturbing your neighbors
  • Tax benefits that come with buying
  • You’re gaining equity

Purchasing a home is often times the biggest investment in anyones life and it can be a big decision to make. There are numerous things to consider besides decor, landscaping, fixtures, flooring, etc. Want to know the easiest way to find out information about homeownership?
