Should I rent or should I buy?

Rent or Buy?

What’s the best choice for you?

Wondering why Landlords continue to raise rental rates? Because they can! Rentals are at capacity in the Metro Area for apartments & single family homes. Demand is high & supply is low so rates are going up. Rental rates rose an average of 5% last year and have increased as much as 3% in some parts of the city this year. Interestingly, per a recent article in Atlanta Agent Magazine rental rates are rising faster in the suburbs than in the city:

Whether potential buyers are considering their first home purchase, downsizing, buying after a divorce, etc. they are in a quandary whether to rent or buy. Beyond the personal/emotional motives to owning a home, there are many financial benefits to homeownership too. However, renting may be better for some. Here’s a cool tool to help you decide what’s best for you:

Atlanta home values surpass

pre-recession peak!

Absolutely thrilled to report that Atlanta home values have surpassed the peaks of 2007! The average sales price for detached housing is up 5% YTD from 2016. Owners of condos & townhouses will be pleased to learn attached housing prices are up 9% YTD from last year.

Continued economic recovery & low inventory are 2 of the main causes for price increases.

Sellers are loving this!! So if you or someone you know is thinking about making a move, contact me TODAY to learn more about how you can take advantage of the opportunities presented by today’s market.

All the best,

Debby
