Rent vs. Buy?

Should I rent or should I buy?

rent vs buy

Have you noticed that rental rates continue to rise? It’s because most rentals are at capacity whether it’s an apartment, condo or single family home. Landlords are increasing rental rates because they can. This phenomenon has many renters reconsidering changing their housing plan from renting to buying. Initially, it may appear that renting costs less per month than buying. However, in the long term that may not be the case. Here’s a great tool to help you determine the best option for you:

Just plug in the desired ZIP code & the system will populate the average sales price & rental rates for that ZIP code. The tool also calculates all the costs associated with owning a home; including taxes, insurance, utilities & maintenance, vs. renting. The results may surprise you. For example; the average sales price for a home in 30338/Dunwoody is $466,307, average rental rates in the same area are $1,671/month. Believe it or not, it’s cheaper to buy a $400,000+ house than rent for less than $2,000/month in Dunwoody. Especially when one considers the increase in value of your investment/home which is elusive to renters as rentals offer no long term return on investment (ROI).
