Relocating to Ridgeland, SC? Rent Instead

Relocating to Ridgeland, SC? Rent Instead

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, October 20, 2016

As a result of the real estate market in the recent past, it's not surprising if people are a bit gun shy about buying or owning a home. Some questions that potential homeowners are considering:

  • What if I can't afford my mortgage in the future?
  • What if my home loses so much value that I eventually owe more than it's worth?
  • What if I have to move in a few years and can't sell my home?

If you've ever asked yourself these questions about home ownership, it could be time for you to look into renting versus buying a home. Believe it or not, sometimes it makes more sense to rent an apartment in Ridgeland, SC rather than own.

Here are 3 tips to help you figure out which option—renting or buying—makes the most sense for you,

  1. Evaluate whether you have a steady income to support paying a mortgage.
  2. Make a timeline of how long you plan to stay put. If you anticipate staying in a home for only one or two years, it is unlikely that you will see a significant financial return on your investment.
  3. Crunch the numbers before making your decision. When buying a home, you have to take into consideration your mortgage payments as well as real estate taxes, insurance payments, and the maintenance costs. With renting a home, calculating month-to-month housing expenses is as easy as inquiring about the monthly rent and average utilities.

Bottom line: buying doesn't always make sense. For information on our apartment community in Ridgeland, SC contact Auston Chase Apartments.

Downsizing and Renting – Ridgeland, SC

Downsizing and Renting – Ridgeland, SC

Joseph Coupal - Friday, October 14, 2016

Pick up a design magazine or scan the real estate section of the local newspaper and you’ll probably find something about downsizing. But the word means different things to different people. Downsizing often means moving into smaller, less expensive spaces, but some people are trading up and starting over.

However, according to the US Census, more than half of homeowners in the 55-to-64 age group are not buying new properties — luxury or otherwise. Some of them are staying where they are, but a growing number are selling their homes and moving into rentals like apartments in Fredericksburg, VA .

We have found a sharp swing toward moving to rental apartments compared to homeownership among the 55-plus population. During 2000, just over half (52.5 percent) of older recent movers moved to a rental. This proportion rose to 63 percent by 2013-14.

Regardless of whether they are looking to buy or to rent, downsizers are a highly visible group these days.

Whether downsizers sell and buy or sell and rent, there is one tax advantage, a “big one”.

US tax law generally allows an individual seller “to exclude from federal taxes the first $250,000 of gain on the sale of a primary residence ($500,000 for married couples filing jointly) that has been occupied for at least two of the five years preceding the sale”.

This can be a big windfall for people who are selling in anticipation of retirement. Also, the aforementioned rule applies to the house sale, no matter if a cheaper or more expensive home is acquired to replace the sold residence or if no replacement is made, e.g., the homeowner moves to a rental.

Either way, moving is a foreboding task, but you don’t have to go it alone.

Retirees can trade space for the lifestyle. Once you get to a certain point in your life, it becomes apparent what spaces — and stuff — you use and need, and then it’s time to ask yourself, “What do I do with the stuff?’ ”

Renters Keep On Renting Apartments in Ridgeland, SC

Renters Keep On Renting Apartments in Ridgeland, SC

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, October 06, 2016

Many people in their 30’s are still renting and often with roommates. The reality of having student loans and having debt can change the plan of homeownership.

Also, 30 year olds got a little spooked by the financial crisis. Many had parents who owned a home, but were underwater in their mortgage.

The nation’s homeownership rate – that’s the percentage of homes owned by the people who live in them – is at a 50-year low at about 63%.

With rising home prices, more Americans are choosing to rent and stay put. As a result, apartment owners are reaping the benefits -- just this week, Mid-America Apartment Communities announced it’s buying apartment giant Post Properties Inc. for about $4 billion.

We’ve had an increase...of almost 9 million renters in the past 10 years.

Some of the reasons Americans are putting off buying homes include stagnant incomes, more people delaying starting families and tough standards for mortgage loans.

There’s been a tightening up. It’s harder – more people have to save for a bigger down payment.

The vast majority of renters – more than 80 percent – still plan to own a home one day. Many won’t be making any other big investments until she unloads some of her debt.
