Today Could be Your Independence Day;
the Day Claiming Your Independence From Rent

Date The Rate,
Marry The House
& Divorce The Rent!

In San Diego, CA the majority of people are paying as much or more monthly in rents as home owners do on their mortgage. So, it doesn't make sense to rent when you can afford to own. It doesn't make sense to assume you can't afford to own, when you can find out for FREE with me and my #1 Lender Jason E. Gordon

Here's a simple calculation to prove that Buying Becomes Cheaper than Renting after 5 years of ownership in San Diego, CA.

I used a realistic scenario for San Diego, CA:

Comparing Renting a 2 bed / 2 bath condo (average rents $3,000) vs. Buying that same Condo (average entry level price $600K)  with 10% down payment.

Thomas, I saw date the rate and marry the house on FB, and that was very good, and adding divorce the rent is even better!  Happy 4th of July!

Hello Thomas J. Nelson, REALTOR ® e-Pro CRS RCS-D Vets  it is important to declare independence from renting. I like the concept, date the rate, marry the house, & divorce the rent!

I sure am glad that I claimed my independence from rent a long time ago!  I feel bad for those that are slaves to rent.

Great way to share the importance of owning vs renting.  Sometimes it takes a phrase to catch a renters attention!
