Renting vs. Buying?

Which is better? 

Maybe you’re in the process of selling your home and you’re wondering whether it’d be better to rent or buy…

Renting vs. Buying?

Well, at Next Page Properties, we’ve been helping home sellers get a fair cash price for their home in Warren, Lincoln or St. Charles County for quite some time. Over the years, we’ve seen the pros and cons of both buying AND renting. 

So we thought we’d take a moment to share those pros and cons with you. 

RENTING PROS

  • No Property Taxes
  • Not Stuck With Depreciating Home
  • Repairs Are Paid For
  • No Down Payment

RENTING CONS

  • Rent Annual Increases
  • Doesn’t Build Equity
  • Can’t Customize Property Without Owner’s Consent

BUYING PROS

  • Builds Equity
  • Lower Monthly Cost For Larger House
  • Pride of Homeownership
  • Customize Your Living Space

BUYING CONS

  • Pay For Maintenance
  • HOA Fees
  • Large Down Payment Upfront
  • Risk Of Decreasing Value
  • Property Taxes

In our opinion, buying is a good idea if you can afford the down payment and don’t mind taking on the risking of OWNING the asset, while renting is a good choice if you can’t afford the down payment and/or don’t want to be responsible for the value of the asset.
