Should you keep renting, or is it time to buy?

Mortgage and Lending with Cambria Mortgage NMLS 274132

Minneapolis, MN: Should you keep renting, or is it time to buy? That is a question may people are asking right now.

You have to live somewhere, and that somewhere almost always should be your own home, plus the benefits of homeownership generally mean, no matter what is going on in the real estate markets, you should buy a home NOW vs waiting.

Home prices continue to climb, with no sign of going down. Mortgage interest rates are higher than just a few years ago, but you can always refinance to lower rates when they come back down, and they will come back down once inflation gets under control.

Ever wonder what you could purchase for the amount you are spending in rent each month? 

We have a handy free tool that will give you an idea of what a monthly mortgage payment might look like and some of the benefits of home ownership that may lower it's real cost. Just click the green GO button to see your own numbers.

Great Post Joe.   I think if you can financially, you should always buy.   When you rent you get zero return on your money.   I just resold a home for a client who lived in the home for 2 years and at the closing walked away with a check for 100K.  And this was on a home they orginally bought at less than 350K!  If they had rented they would have lost money.   ALWAYS BUY IF YOU CAN!!!

when I work with first time home buyers I like to explain it's not just about trading the amount you pay for rent for a mortgage because there's so much more... repairs, emergencies, taxes, special assessments.  I believe some people should always rent.
