HAVE YOU EVER CONSIDERED THE BENEFITS OF BUYING VS RENTING?

There is no doubt about it, there are definitely some benefits to renting a home rather than taking the leap to purchase. Your costs can be lower than if you purchase but what about getting a return on that investment?

The article below sets out 5 really good incentives to buy instead of renting.

 

  1. Possible Tax Breaks
  2. Getting help from CMHC to purchase a home
  3. Using your RRSP contributions as leverage
  4. GST New Housing Rebate
  5. Building Equity and Credit

INVENTORY IS LOW – IF YOU ARE THINKING OF LISTING – GET AHEAD OF THE COMPETITION AND DO IT NOW!

The end of 2019 showed no let up in Real Estate sales and the market was extremely strong! We are in what is considered a ‘Sellers Market’** with some homes going into multiple offers due to low inventory and strong demand from buyers.

**For example, the inventory for Langley Condos was down 30% from November to December 2019 but sale price was up 1%. Sales price per sq ft was up 8%.

Inventory for Langley detached homes was down 35% compared to November and sales prices remained unchanged.

Don’t wait for the ‘Spring Market’! In this sellers market, it pays to get ahead of the competition! If you are considering selling your home in Langley, Cloverdale or in the Fraser Valley, let the Garry Voigt Real Estate Team help.
