Cute. Cozy. Charming. Almost 1200 square feet of comfy living await you at 3635 E. Montezuma Ave. Comprised of 3-beds and 2-baths, a spacious living area, kitchen, breakfast nook and interior laundry room. The exterior offers a fenced, grass backyard with a large, covered deck, plus a spacious shed complete with electricity. The home offers some energy saving features also, such as a solar fan in the attic that automatically turns on when the temperature reaches 80-degrees, to disperse the heat of those warm, Arizona summer afternoons, as well as a radiant barrier in the rafters, and the back of the home is south-oriented for a possible solar option. The HVAC has been recently inspected and given a clean bill of health, and the entire home has been recently rodent proofed. All of the above is situated on .21-acres and was built in 2003.

MLS # 518301. Priced at $234,500

Most renters put off buying a home because they think renting is more affordable than buying their own home. But with rents rising across the nation at historic rates, home ownership is becoming the more affordable option. According to a recent Market Outlook Report from Realtor.com, in 2017 rents rose year-over-year in a whopping 78% of counties across the US. These sometimes drastic increases in rent are eating up more of renters’ budgets and often making renting more expensive than purchasing. According to a recent study by Zillow, home ownership has become more affordable than renting in the majority of metro markets across the US. According to the study, the average renter pays nearly 30% of their income towards rent. The average homeowner pays significantly less, with only 15.4% of their income going towards their mortgage. In other words, in many markets, renting compromises nearly twice the income of owning a home.

The Takeaway If you’re renting as a way to save money, it’s time to rethink your strategy. Owning a home is a long-term investment strategy that can help you build your wealth. And with rising rents, it might be the more affordable option as well.
