65 Homes In Lafayette That Are Better Than Renting

Dated: 01/05/2016

Views: 973

Rents have been on the rise forever!  Just 8 years ago what could be rented for $900 is close to $1200 now.  One thing is for sure about rent, everything you pay towards rent is gone in the pockets of someone else.   Owning puts the money back in your pocket in the form of financial leverage.  

So if you could pay less for a house you own then a place you rent wouldn't it make sense to "freeze" your payment so to speak?  I bought 8 years ago and have never paid more monthly then when I began.  How nice would that be in a time where we are trying to save money?

Here are 65 properties in Lafayette that you could own today for less than what you would pay in the average range of rentals.
