On today’s show, I’m sharing the major reasons why you might want to rent, instead of owning your primary residence. I’ll talk about appreciation, strategies for wealth building, and more! Don’t miss episode 198 of Investing in Real Estate!

More About This Show
Recently I read a news story on CNBC.com by Diana Olick that suggested that putting your money into a primary residence isn’t the wisest financial move. The article referenced an index from Florida Atlantic University, showing that due to current economic factors, renting might be the better option for wealth building.

Although I personally own my home, this news comes as no surprise to me. Most millionaire real estate investors that I have met do not own their homes; instead they rent.

Let’s say your primary residence costs $300,000, and you put down a 20% down payment of $60,000. Is that really the best use of that $60,000? Alternatively, you could purchase a rental property that brings in passive cash flow every single month.

In the scenario in which you own your home, the future of your wealth building is tied up primarily in the chances of appreciation. That’s a terrible strategy! Instead, you could use that money to purchase a rental property that will add to your net worth, mitigate your tax burden, and create wealth.

On today’s show, I’ll dive further into the topic of renting vs. owning a home. I’ll share details from the Florida Atlantic University study, and touch on my controversial YouTube video on homeowners. Please join me on episode 198!
