Deciding whether to rent or buy a home this year? Rental affordability has been challenging for years, and it isn't changing any time soon. That's why many are considering the advantages of purchasing property despite the higher rates.
According to data recently released by Realtor.com, while the rental market is experiencing slower-paced growth, as of March 2023, rent is still over 25% higher than in March 2019! With rents much higher now than in pre-pandemic years, owning your own home can provide a more affordable and stable option.
Homeowners with a fixed-rate mortgage can lock in a monthly payment for the duration of their loan, usually 30 years, unlike renters, who are subjected to fluctuating rental rates.
If you need a larger living space, like two or more bedrooms, then you should definitely look into buying a home. When comparing the cost of rent of a two-bedroom to a mortgage payment for a two-bedroom, the homeowner comes out on top. According to Realtor.com, the median monthly mortgage payment for a two-bedroom property is $74 less than renting.
Furthermore, owning a home allows you to start building equity, which grows your net worth as home values typically rise over time. As you pay off your mortgage, the equity builds, which can be utilized to fuel a move to an even larger space down the line. Building your own equity is why many bought their homes in the past year.
There's no better time than the present to pursue your dream of buying your first home. If you're looking to accommodate your household in a bigger space, have more breathing room to spread your belongings, or dedicate space to your hobbies, consider homeownership and work with a trusted mortgage professional to explore your home financing options and home-buying assistance programs.
