It can be hard to make the decision to buy rather than continuing to rent, especially when interest rates started going up instead of down. Mortgage rates have come down a bit since last year’s peak, but with home prices continuing to rise affordability can be an issue and low inventory can make it hard to secure a home to buy. In addition, when you rent you don’t have to worry about fixing the furnace or replacing appliances or any kind of maintenance. You also don’t have to worry about selling your home if you move to another part of the country or world… or even across the metro. But even finding a new place to rent can be a challenge if you move.
Long-term, buying can be a good option in spite of the challenges. The infographic below gives some important factors to think about in your deliberations.
