Should you buy a home or keep renting?
A mortgage bill might be cheaper than rent. But you’ll need money for a down payment, and don’t overlook extra homeownership costs like taxes and maintenance.
Although renting is great for short-term living, ownership could allow you to build up valuable equity, so long as you stay put.
As a homeowner, you have freedom to renovate or decorate however you like without a landlord’s permission.
Consider what you can afford and how you’d like to live.
If homeownership sounds best, it might be time to ready a down payment and contact a real estate agent.
