Rent vs. Own - Leverage Your Live-in Investment to Build Wealth


Owning a home has great financial benefits. The single best opportunity to build wealth is homeownership.
Let’s breakdown 5 major financial benefits of homeownership:
1. Housing is typically the one leveraged investment available
2. You’re paying for housing whether you own or rent
3. Owning is usually a form of “forced savings”
4. Owning is a hedge against inflation
5. There are still substantial tax benefits to owning (*Consult your tax advisor to confirm your personal tax benefits)

tempe condominiums: My Walk to ASU Tempe Campus on Saturday Morning - 09/30/17 07:44 PM

So, experiencing the walk, which I advertise, was an added luxury of the morning - what new things … (18 comments)

They are self-guided tours with flashlights on paved trails with various learning and entertainment stations along the trail.  The docents at the booths are knowledgeable and engaging.

I like to start my evening walk while it's still twilight … (10 comments)
