Rent Vs. Own - Cumming Real Estate Agent gives his opinion

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

Today I helped a buyer put a home under contract - he is paying around 105K and is putting down 5% and his monthly payment on his home will be around $675 compared to rent of $1200 per month for a 2 bedroom apartment in Cumming.  Not only does he get any appreciation on the home but he also gets to deduct a significant portion of his monthly payment.

If you rent a home or apartment in Cumming, Alpharetta or Suwanee and want to know the beneifits of owning a home versus renting a home, or if you want to buy a home - please call me at 770 722-7010 or email me at JohnFoster@remax.net.  I am alwaying looking for new people to help buy homes.  I specialize in selling homes in Alpharetta, Cumming and Suwanee.

Buyers just need to do the numbers! In many areas these days it's cheaper to own than to rent, so that's the way to go if you have some down payment, can qualify for a mortgage, and have a longer term outlook.

It has been cheaper to own than rent for several years here in Chandler, AZ, but the tide is slowly turning. The problem is getting potential buyers qualified. The numbers speak for themselves.
