The Different Pros and Cons of Renting vs. Buying a Home

You can expect to pay more for housing across the country, no matter if you buy or rent. Both rent and home prices have increased rapidly within the last couple of years, so it is important to act now and start asking yourself how you wish to live, and where. However, JA Myers Homes still can provide affordable opportunities to purchase.  Do you want to live in a busy city or a quiet, charming move-in ready home community from J.A. Myers? There are pros and cons to consider with each.

The Advantages of Buying a Home

If you think you’re fine living in a home for five years or more, then buying a home within your budget makes sense and could provide you with many advantages. First, owning a housing mortgage means a portion of your monthly housing payments goes towards building equity in your property, not the landlord’s. Another advantage of buying a home is that you can improve and customize your living space, which is typically prohibited when you rent.

Along with the pride and joy of homeownership, there is also the possibility of gaining property value as time passes. This is called building equity.  Although a rise in interest rates today could slow the growth of housing prices as time passes, a growth in housing costs might be on the horizon. We at J.A. Myers can help you determine how much you could spend on a home, based on your current income, mortgage term, and more. As mentioned earlier, we have plenty of homes available now in the mid $200,000 range, and we’re a builder of choices company, which means you can take any of our 50 designs, and we will modify them to meet your needs!
