TO BUY OR TO RENT? THAT IS THE QUESTION!

Many people today are concerned that maybe now isn't the best time to buy their first home. I can show you how much rentals in Maryland are priced at, compared to how much home you can buy for either the same or less in monthly payments! With me, I will compile a complete market analysis for the area you are interested in living. It is a buyers market, after all, and buying a home, can be like money in the bank, sometimes even better! Put your stock money in a home, rather than the stock market...you may be glad you did! Of course, I always tell my clients to consult with a financial advisor, but with the right home, and the right contract agreement, I think they would agree.

Please feel free to add your concerns or thoughts on this subject. Maryland is such a diverse state to live in. It has so much to offer. I will be glad to share statistics with you, my clients, to back up my professional opinion, as a Realtor.

Sally, 1st blog? Congrats!

There are so many examples today of being able to buy for less or the same as renting. So it quite possibly would make a lot more sense to buy rather than rent.  I would just add in: How long the client plans on staying in their new home. If it is only for the short run then renting might be a better option, but long term, buying is by far the better choice!

Great post now is a great time to buy there are some really great values and rates; of course, every buyer needs to take a look at their own situation before purchasing a home.

Yes, I agree to both your comments! If a person is planning on sticking around awhile, why not buy if you're able? Even if you live in a home for 5 years, put a little TLC in it, some upgrades, and it's very possible to wreak the benefits of equity! Of course, and as always in real estate, it's about location, location, location!
