~ No Thanks, I Think I'll Just Rent ~

real estate in south AuroraIt bothers me when I hear this comment.  This usually comes from the mouth of someone that is not fully educated on the current market.  As I explained in an earlier post, Should I Buy or Should I Rent a Home in south Aurora?, now is the perfect time to purchase a home.

The average sales price for a home in south Aurora that has between 1000-1400 square feet with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms sold for $133,264 in September 2011.  The payment, based on an FHA loan, with the minimum 3.5% down, of $4665 and at 4% interest, would be less than $950.00 a month.  (That payment would include principle, interest, taxes, hazard insurance and mortgage insurance.) 

According to a local property manager, to rent a similar property in south Aurora, one would be spending between $900 to $1275 per month.  Yes, by renting one has the freedom of not being "tied down" to one place for a long time, but looses the pride of home ownership and the tax deductions one receives when they own a home.

If this post is making you think twice about your decision to rent, contact Dawn Fabiszak, and put her 18 years of experience to work for you.  She has been a full time real estate professional and is very familiar with homes and condos in south Aurora.

South Aurora definitely sounds like the perfect place to be buying as opposed to renting.  Sometimes it doesn't make sense, but I can see it does there.

This week I finally got an offer on a home that's been listed since March.  It was the first home for this couple.  They have to bring money to closing. The husband told me, 'it will be a VERY long time before I ever consider buying another home".  Many younger folks feel that way these days--if they just bought a few years ago, it's too hard to try and sell now and make any kind of profit.  It will be interesting to see if Gen Y continues to buy homes in the years aheead.

But  I agree..if you can buy now, don't wait!
