See this flyer comparing buying a home vs. renting. You can buy a home for the same monthly payment as renting, and build equity.
If you have been thinking of buying a home, now is a great time to buy, particularly if you are currently renting! With rates remaining at historical lows, you may be able to buy a home and pay no more than your current monthly rent, while building equity for the future. See the attached comparison of buying vs. renting for more information.
