Should I Rent or Should I Buy? [INFOGRAPHIC]

A Timeless Question

Realtors® are constantly asked this question – is there more value for me to rent (or continue renting) or is there more value for me to buy? In the short-term, renting can seem more economical, but there are many benefits to homeownership that extend past the here and now.

Some Highlights

  • It’s worth considering the many benefits of homeownership before you make the decision to rent or buy a home.
  • When you buy, you can stabilize your housing costs, own a tangible asset, and grow your net worth as you gain equity. When you rent, you face rising housing costs, won’t see a return on your investment, and limit your ability to save.
