Is it Better to Buy or Rent?


Do you rent the home you live in?  Have you thought about buying a home but don’t know if it makes financial sense?  We have just addedIs it better to buy or rent? a great new tool to our website that can help you sort through the numbers.  Our Buy vs. Rent Calculator is designed to help you make sense of the dollars you would pay to buy a home and compare those to what you pay to rent.  You might be surprised by the results!

Of course, this calculator should not be the sole basis of making a financial decision as important as buying a home.  This is a useful tool in making an informed decision but no one knows what the future will bring.  Just ask people who bought a home in 2005.  If, after spending some time with this calculator, you decide that it makes sense for you to do a little more digging on the subject then please call us at (541) 508-2930.  We would be happy to answer any questions you have about the process of buying a home, tell you about homes that are for sale in your price range and help you find a good lender who can get you pre-qualified.
