it depends on your situation anon. you have to look at the pros and cons of renting vs. buying and if the amount you'd be paying on equity of the home is in line with how much you'd like to be paying each month.

there's also transactional costs to consider if you don't plan on staying in one abode for a long time.

Owning a house comes with a lot of costs that people ignore for some reason.

Im not saying you shouldn't buy one, you should, but with the security you get with owning your own home, it also comes with the downsides of it being very expensive to maintain

If you dont think it is expensive to maintain, you probably live in a dump that would be listed as uninhabitable if anyone inspected the place

The only reason you really need to hear is that in an apartment you have annoying and lousy neighbors up and down, and it8s impossible not to be annoyed by them, there will come one moment where you get frustrated and repressed for hearing your apartment neighbors practicing an instrument/arguing/making a party/having a baby crying

>> No.29631804

With the mortgage, property taxes, heat, water, hydro, and inevitable expenditures on repairs, the ongoing cost of ownership of a house is higher than renting a apartment. You do build equity, but you are paying a massive premium (interest over amortization) to retain that equity.

The only way you “win” from traditional home ownership is in the appreciation of the house price when you sell.

Ask yourself, how much will it cost me to own this asset? how much do I think this asset is going to appreciate over the time I own it?

>> No.29632094

Equity. Every payment you make you're closer to owning an appreciating asset.
You just have to be careful about choosing neighborhood, school zones, crime rates, etc. which will hurt your property values.

You're delusional if you don't think you pay for any of this.

If you're in an apartment complex, which it sounds like you are, those costs are spread out across the tenants, but every person renting is paying for those services, not the landlord.

Show me 1 successful person that does not own their own house and instead rents.

>> No.29632967

Interest + repairs + property tax is far lower than rent prices here.

Sure, I also need to pay off principle which makes it cost a little more but that is going into a stable decent return asset. I think you get more roastie benefits owning your own home than you do renting, you get other benefits as well mostly freedomwise with your own home, sure, you're still a cuck to your bank but atleast you're not a cuck to your landlord and their bank.

Also rent prices rise quite rapidly, you think 9% is low but it's more like 15% in true value as you dodge the rent increases. Sure, it may be low compared to crypto but that's not the point, you need to diversify and the long term stability a home offers benefits a lot of people.

housing will never get cheaper, it might dip but so do stonks and crypto but it always goes back up so anyone trying that argument is retarded. I was 19 when the market crashed to 7k in 2008 now it’s almost 32k

depends on how long you’re going to stay in one area
I rented for 5 years because work had me bouncing all over the state randomly every 12-18 months so I’d move closer to where they sent me
after 5 years I bought a house once things settled down, the mortgage/rent payment stayed the same then the eternal insurance/tax jew appeared on my monthly expenses now

bought my house for $159k close to housing bubble recovery, it’s now worth $190k and I owe $140k so I will recoup some of my “invest” when I sell to upgrade
been here 6 years in a house build in the mid 90’s and my only expense was a water heater ($700) and hvac fan failing ($400). but the roof will need to be replaced in 5-10yrs probably ($10k) and I’ll probably buy a new hvac ($3k) in a year or two cause bitch is old and they don’t last longer than 10yrs usually

tl;dr x2
lived here for 6yrs and spent $1200 in repairs and $5k for property taxes for a 30yr old house, will obviously go up the longer I stay. all while potentially profiting $30k when I sell that would have been gone to renting

I know a number of business/investing guru types on social media who rent and brag about it. And if you look at the rental market for any big city you can see tons of places that go for $4,000+ or even $10k+ per month, obviously the people who rent those are rich.

>> No.29634645

I haven’t gotten it appraised I’m just going off the low end, 2 new houses same size as mine down the road sold for $220k 2 years ago. they were virgin vinyl siding and mine is chad brick

but they were new, ballpark figure Im probably looking at $200k as it sits, $220 if I replace the roof and hvac and pocket a $5k profit and I’d need to touch up the paint on the inside and out

then you have realtor jews who will take their 6-8% so I’ll be lucky to walk away with $40k in my hands after it’s all said and done if I sold in 2yrs

You can only deduct these expenses if you are earning income on your property, most probably rental income from tenants. If it's a house only you live in none of these are deductible.

>> No.29635658

It's like that literally almost everywhere to be honest.

Renting only makes sense if you cannot come up with a down payment yet or are planning to move in a relatively short amount of time (5-7 years so you can build some equity)/move frequently for work.

>> No.29635783

there is no way to know which is better because it is subjective. some people might want to live in a specific area and can't afford the price of property and wants to rent whereas someone might not give a shit living in the middle of nowhere so it's cheap to own.

Guys I'm thinking of buying a fourplex for around 200k. It's not the prettiest house. The property tax assessment is $140k. It's a bit of a ghetto house, but decent enough to live in and in good shape inside. I could rent out 2 1 bed room apartments for 500-600 and another for around 700 (2 bedroom).
