Renting Vs. Buying
Overall, buying makes better financial sense over the long run than renting for the average person or family (search all homes for sale). However, there are definite advantages to renting as well. We’ve broken down the positives of both:
Pros of Buying
- Mortgage payments stay the same over time
- Part of your mortgage payments might be tax deductible
- Paying a mortgage forces you to save, as you build up equity
- Creates more stability and you don’t have to move
- It’s your home and with far less rules to follow
- You can remodel your home as you wish
- Pride of ownership
Pros of Renting
- Overall less responsibility
- No down payment required
- No taxes or maintenance costs
- Easier to move when you want
- Don’t have to worry about fluctuations in home values
Maybe You CAN Buy A Home . . .
Many people are looking for St George Utah homes for rent because they don’t realize they can buy. They may have applied for a mortgage loan and got denied for myriad of reasons. This may be due to low or no credit, insufficient work experience, U.S. citizenship status, or recent bankruptcy. Any one of these reasons can block someone from getting a standard mortgage loan. Renting may be the answer for you, but if you have a sizable down payment, you may still be able to purchase a home.
If you’re having a difficult time finding St George Utah homes for rent, you may want to look into owner financing. Owner financing generally requires a larger down payment than a traditional mortgage loan, usually 10%-20% of the purchase price. So, for example, if you wanted to purchase a $300,000 home, you would need a minimum of $30,000. Some people are able to get a gift from a friend or family member in order to participate in seller financing.
In our experience, the seller-financing terms are similar to a traditional 30-year mortgage loan. However, one major difference is the annual interest rate can be 2-3 points higher than a traditional mortgage loan. Many people use owner financing as a short-term solution until they are ready to refinance into a lower interest loan. Conversely, there are others who treat owner financing as a long-term solution and pay it off as quickly as they can. For more information on owner financing, please visit our owner financing page.
Robertson Real Estate specializes in owner financing. If you have at least a 10% down payment, we may be able to connect you with a seller who is willing to entertain seller financing. Simply send us a quick e-mail or call us, and we’ll be able to give you a quick answer.
