One of the most important decisions you can make is whether to buy or rent. There are times when it makes more sense to rent. When that's the case, a property consultant can help sort through the lifestyle and financial considerations involved and help you make the right choice for your needs.

Some factors you may want to consider in your decision to rent versus buy:

Frequent Job Relocation

If the nature of your job means that you relocate often, or you are likely to relocate sometime within the next few years, renting may be the ideal solution for you.

Home Maintenance and Repairs

If you don’t have time for ongoing maintenance and repairs, renting is a better option, as the landlord or management company is responsible for the property.

When Renting Costs Less

One of the most obvious cases for renting instead of buying a home is when renting simply costs less. Renting can also give you time to get to know an area and become comfortable there before choosing to buy.
