Rent versus buying in this economy??

April 10th, 2012 at 04:41 pm

So even though me and my husband were finally able to buy this year we decided to rent again we found a much bigger townhome in the same subdivision for only $75 bucks more a month! We ultimately said "just because we can doesn't mean we should!" and left it at that. We both agreed to the fact that we don't care for yard work and the maintenance that comes along with owning a home and we'd rather be doing other things with our time things that are actually important to us and just having more time to spend together as a family and with each other! And with the kids getting older they will be gone before we know it and we don't want to be stuck with all that house to clean! Smile

    Great plan...we are working on deciding between buying and renting for our move this summer. It depends a bit about what we can find to rent that we like in the new area.

    I'm sure you'll find something you like, good luck on your search! Dont forget to go back into the unknown areas the circles and courts as well sometimes owners place signs in their yards and windows that arent seen by the naked eye! Thats how we found ours! Again Good luck! Smile

    "Just because we can doesn't mean we should" is a wise idea that leads to much better decisions financially. It's always nice to have some insurance that you are not a slave to buying for buying's sake!
