Long Island Real Estate and Lifestyle

To Rent or To Buy... That is the question.

So many times I counsel buyers as to what the benefits are to buying a home vs. renting a home.  However, you are the only one who can determine if the timing is right for you.  Working with first time home buyers on Long Island, there are so many options a buyer has when beginning their home search.  Even if the budget cannot stretch to afford a residential home purchase, there are more affordable options for condo or co op purchases.  If you are debating what the right move may be for you whether it is to rent or buy on Long Island, check out this article below for some interesting charts, tips and variables that come into play when making your decision.  You can always contact me for a buyer consultation where we can also sit down together and discuss your options.
