The Difference Between Renting and Owning

When trying to decide whether to rent or buy real estate in Redondo Beach, consider the many financial benefits that come with owning a home.

When Renting:

  • Landlord’s wealth grows.
  • Monthly payment goes up each time a lease is signed or renewed.
  • Rental price appreciation pinches the wallet and has no financial reward.
  • With rising rent cycles, saving for a down payment is more difficult.

When Owning:

  • Wealth is built for the homeowner.
  • Monthly payment is locked in for length of loan, usually 15-30 years.
  • Home appreciation and equity built equals increasing investment wealth.
  • Equity wealth and net worth can fuel purchase of next home.

If weighing options, remain mindful that owning a home has considerable financial rewards.
