Why rent when you can buy?

With rising property costs and current rental prices, you could be forgiven in thinking that it is unlikely that you will ever own your own home. However, there is plenty of help available if you are a first-time buyer who is keen to get onto the property ladder.

And with monthly rent sometimes costing more than mortgage repayments, why pay rent into someone else’s pocket when you could be investing in your own home?

Benefits of buying vs renting

  • Your monthly payments go towards your own home rather than in someone else’s pocket.
  • Once you have paid off your mortgage, you fully own your home and will no longer have to pay monthly.
  • If house prices rise, you could make a profit when you come to sell the property.
  • You can make changes such as redecorating to your home without asking a landlord for permission.
  • Buying can be cheaper than renting.
  • You can’t be asked to leave the property because the landlord wants to sell, giving you more long-term security.
  • Less important, but probably more fun, you’ll be able to decorate as you wish and get that pet you’ve been desperate for.
