Rent Vs. Own
August 9th, 2019 3:48 PM by Tenby Dahman
Rent Vs. Own
Owning your own home vs. renting may lead to some great options, such as locking in your monthly payments and having the freedom to customize your living space.
Whether you rent or own, you have to cover someone’s mortgage costs. You may as well be doing so to build your own wealth, rather than that of your landlord.
Renting and owning both have up-front fees when you sign your lease or close, respectively. Think about putting that money to work for you!
