Denver Rents are Unaffordable
Denver Rents are Unaffordable!
We hear it constantly, rental costs are going up! In the Denver Metro market, most people are spending over 30% of their income on rent. The worst part? That money is not building the renter equity. That money is making the landlord richer. Make the smarter move and buy your own place. There are lots of townhouses, condos and detached homes available in the Denver area looking for new owners.
A recent report released by Zillow shows that buying is a better deal because the median home price will cost less than 20% of the average person’s income. That’s a lot of money saved per month. You can also deduct the interest paid on your mortgage – something you cannot do with your rent.
Many renters have roommates to afford the rent. Imagine buying a home and having a roommate pay half your mortgage. Win win! This is a great way to gain equity using other people’s money. So find an interested party that wants to live with you and start the home buying process.
