Renting Vs Buying

I came across this article written in the Greenville Today Email Feed and I thought it was well written. Interest rates are still about as low as they will be for a while. It is definitely worth reaching out to a local lender to see if it makes sense to buy vs rent and gain equity instead of continuing to waste money each month. Rental rates are often MORE expensive than what your mortgage payment would be! The spring market is about to kick up and new listings will start hitting every day - if you have ever wondered what price point you could buy with the current amount you are paying in rent every month, hit me up - I would love to connect with you to run the numbers!
