Kristin - That is a great graphic to show the cost of buying vs. renting.

Hi Kristin - we are very fortunate to have the resources of C.A.R.(California Association of REALTORS) for real estate information.  It's a great foundation to build upon as we explain the differences and nuances of our markets to our clients.

Kristin: That chart says it all, doesn't it? I hope renters take heed.

In Charlotte where home prices are very reasonable, so long as someone has a longer term outlook, can put together a down payment and qualify for a mortgage the cost of buying versus renting is soooo much lower it's a non-brainer!

Hi Christine,

Thanks for stopping by and hopefully some renters will decide to make the move to homeownership. Where else can you get a great tax break on your taxes.

Hi Michael,

Yes C.A.R. does a lot to support us and give us many resourches to spread the word to buyers/sellers.

Hi Hella,

Yes the facts are supported by data and presented to show that renters can be paying on their home vs. paying someone else's house payment.

Hi Scott,

Sometimes charts with pictures are a great way to get the word out.

Hi Nina,

As long as homeowners  have a pad in case something breaks and to cover property taxes, the price is pretty much the same and all of your mortgage interest is tax deductable. This is a good deal for homeowners! If you pay $12,000 in mortagage payments, you can deduct approximately $11,250. This can be such a great choice if you want a big tax return yearly.
