Should you purchase or rent your next home?

Should you purchase or rent your next home?

Throughout Yardley and its surrounding picturesque towns, there are many homes and condos available for sale as well as rent. A common decision however for many is – should I purchase a home or rent?


 


Today’s economy plays a large role in that decision. As a homeowner, you must factor in a down payment, closing costs, and even repair costs if the home is in need of any minor or major repairs. When you purchase a foreclosure especially, home repair costs can play a major role in the purchasing decision of the home – as in most cases there are many home repairs that must be performed after purchasing the home – before it may become habitable.


 


Of course, a plus to purchasing a home is simply the privilege of owning a home in which to live. When you own, you have complete control over decorating, painting, carpeting, landscaping – the list is endless!


 


Renting can be a great option if you do not want the hassle of home maintenance. In most cases (not all), renters enjoy hassle-free living, where a maintenance crew performs all repairs on appliances, and a landscaping company will handle all aspects of mowing the grass, weeding, and landscaping. However, some rental properties will not allow you to have pets – and most will not allow you to paint, change your carpeting, or other home improvements.
