Thinking of Renting or Buying

                             Here are some things to think about:






Property builds equity

Responsible for maintenance

Sense of community, stability, and security

Responsible for property taxes

Free to change decor and landscaping

Possibility of foreclosure and loss of equity

Not dependent on landlord to maintain property

Less mobility than renting



Little or no responsibility for maintenance

No tax benefits

Easier to move

No equity is built up


No control over rent increases


Possibility of eviction
