Question: How do I know if I should buy or rent?
Whether to buy or rent does, of course, depend upon your individual circumstances. The most fundamental question is how long do you plan to stay in the area? If your time line is short, you may want to continue renting. Buying a home means commitment. Besides the monthly mortgage and property taxes, you must allocate time and money for maintenance and updating and there are expenses involved in purchase and sale. The biggest plus to buying is privacy and the ability to use and shape your space to your liking and individual needs. You can run your personal numbers at https://rem.ax/RentVsBuy
