MD ONE LEVEL HOMES | Buying is Better than Renting

My knowledge of our community and the love of my job assisting families find their dream homes. I have been able to place many buyers in the perfect home over the years.  This is not a job for me but a passion that has become a rewarding career. For this very reason, I research the latest information that could affect the way I service my clients and today, I would like to talk to you about why is better to buy a one level home than renting


People often ask if now is a good time to buy a home, but nobody ever asks when a good time to rent is. Regardless, we want to make certain that everyone understands that today is NOT a good time to rent.

The Census Bureau recently released their 2017 first quarter median rent numbers. Here is a graph showing rent increases from 1988 until today:


 As you can see, rents have steadily increased and are showing no signs of slowing down. If you are faced with making the decision of whether or not you should renew your lease, you might be pleasantly surprised at your ability to buy a home of your own instead.

Bottom Line

One way to protect yourself from rising rents is to lock in your housing expense by buying a home. If you are ready and willing to buy, let’s meet to determine if you are able to today!


Just remember, for someone to help you buy a home, he/she must have a vast working knowledge of the local real estate market. This includes the latest pricing trends, neighborhood changes, economical conditions based on local facts and figures, real estate law, financing strategy, insurances and negotiation techniques. 

For that reason and many more, it is imperative that you take your time in finding the right real estate professional that connects with you.
