Is it better to rent, or to buy?


This is one of the great debates in real estate.  The truth is, only you can determine which option best fits your current situation.


There are several online financial calculators available to you; do your research, and determine whether the time is right for you to buy.

When faced with this decision, be sure to consider the following:

  1. The price of the home
  2. Length of time you intend to own the home
  3. The amount of down payment you can afford, and desired mortgage interest rate
  4. The current and projected future real estate market

Your d’aprile properties agent can help you assess your personal and financial situation, and if you so choose, make recommendations based on experience. But in the end, the decision is yours to make, in the best interest of you and your family.
