Home For Rent

$1500 a month

Down Payment

$3500 (first and last months rent + $500 deposit)

Small initial payment with refundable deposit.

Might not get deposit back at end of lease.

Variable VS Fixed

Rent can be increased at end of lease.

You have option to move if rent increases.


Renters are not allowed to do any major renovations.

Flexibility VS Stability

A landlord could decide on short notice to stop renting to a tenant. Tenants are at mercy to their landlord.

Bottom Line

Every time you pay a mortgage payment you are ultimately paying someone else's mortgage.

Home For Sale

$1300 a month

About $250,000

Down Payment

$12500 (5% downpayment, can go as low as 3.5%, and there are down payment assistance programs as well).

That is $12500 closer to paying off your loan.

Variable VS Fixed

Monthly payments stay the same throughout the loan.


Home owners can imporve, renovate, and remodel to increave value and make it your own.

Flexibility VS Stability

Home owners know they have a place to live in.

Bottom Line

Every time you pay a mortgage payment you own a little bit more and build your equity.

Many people are often intimidated when it comes to buying a home. The reality is it can often be less expensive on a month basis and will end up building long term equity. Most homeowners agree that their investment in their home is one of the best investments they've made!
