Check out the benefits you will enjoy by renting an apartment or owning a home to see which is right for you!

Consider these benefits when deciding to rent or buy:

Renting an Apartment

  • You can move with ease. In the short term, renting is less expensive than owning. If you plan to move within a couple of years, renting can provide a smaller commitment.
  • Repairs are taken care of. One of the biggest perks of renting is that you never have to worry about surprise repairs or the costs of home maintenance.
  • Renting has fewer upfront costs with no down payment or closing costs.
  • Time to plan. Renting gives you time to plan before making big commitments.
