  • Buying vs. Renting for Grad Students

    [caption id="attachment_793" align="alignleft" width="440"]Buying or Renting Buying vs. Renting[/caption]

    Dorms are out. It's time to grow up and enter the  world of renting or buying a home or apartment. If you're a grad student, in your junior or senior year of college, or med student looking to buy or rent a home, you have to read this article!

    There are few separate answers to your question.

    First: buying or renting? This is more of an investment question. In most, but not all, situations buying is economically more advantageous.

    Second: Could you get a mortgage loan? – talk to two or three local lenders (starting with your Credit Union) and see what they say. Your chances for a loan are probably small. But you will never know unless you try.

    Third: Could you buy a house without a loan? Possibly – try for Lease Purchase or Rent-to-Own. Get a Realtor to assist you.

    Hope this helps! Good luck. Be sure to check out the Reilly Properties page too!
