There are many reason why people rent instead of buying a home. And, some of these reasons make sense.

Owning a home has been an important component of the American Dream, hence, the term, "Dream Home."
However, many renters, who are potential home buyers, are worried about their ability to buy a home and of the
perceived "complexity" of home ownership.

Some consumers would rather not deal with ("complexity") home repair, maintenance, property taxes, a  mortgage,
and other responsibilities. Many renters have rented for many years, some have move from home to home, and the
cycle continues. Rents have gone up, in many cases, greater than inflation. Would you be able to afford a rent
increase when your lease expires?

Buying a home has never been better in 30 years. Interest rates are still low and home prices have gone down in
many places. Ask me how you may be able to buy a home instead of renting.

Immediately below is a brief snapshot view of a renter's payment through years of renting. As you can see a renter's
payment adds up quickly. Read the article below for additional information about the benefits of buying.
