Here at Thomas Builders, we firmly believe that buying a new home is always preferable to renting. There are, of course, a few advantages to renting, especially for younger crowds who are just starting out. But if you’re looking for a great investment that will save you time, money and energy, you should always consider buying your next residence. If you’re curious about the differences and are thinking about buying, read on to find out why we so heavily suggest it.
It is so much cheaper in the long run to buy your home. If your rent is $1,300, a common renting price among most Maryland homes, you will be losing up to almost $50,000 in the next three years. And if you’re a committed renter for the next 30 years, you could be losing up to one million dollars or more. With price disparities like these, why would you ever consider anything other than buying?
There are, of course, rentable homes and townhomes that have varied floorplans. But there’s no doubt about it–when you buy a home, you have full control over how you’re using each room. This is especially true when you rent a furnished home. Usually, you aren’t allowed to move furniture to use rooms to your best needs. When you buy, you have so many more options!
As a homeowner, you’ll be able to choose from a variety of different materials and surfaces. You won’t have to check with anyone before you replace your cabinets, flooring or walls. And when you sell, there won’t be any need to change anything back for the next customers. You’ll have total control over how your home looks and feels.
Better, energy efficient appliances
Many rented homes come with preinstalled appliances, like refrigerators or dishwashers. These hard to remove and hard to replace appliances can often be old and may be wasting a lot of energy. Some provided washers use way more water than they should be, which means more money out of your wallet. When you own, each appliance is up to your standards, and your choice is greater.
