Buying a Home versus Renting a Home in Tampa Bay Florida

By Bob Lipply

Renting a home is not uncommon as it is clear that some people cannot afford to buy their own home. The natural assumption is that it works out cheaper to buy a home over a long period of time. However, where many of us cannot afford the down payment on a new purchase of property, so renting a property on a yearly lease may be the way to go while saving for your first house.

Finding a home for rent in the Florida, Tampa Bay area depends on the availability of seasonal as well as year round property. What you need to consider are all the costs involved with renting a home. The cost of renting a home is normally determined by the value of the property and location. Unlike buying, most landlords require you to make a 3 month rent payment before moving in. This usually encompasses the down payment, the first months rent, and second months rent.

The problem with renting a home is two-fold: you will never get back what you put into your rental property (equity and ownership), and secondly you will have restrictions imposed on you that you would not have while owning your own house. However, as a short term solution, renting a home in a new area can be ideal while you save money and slowly shop for your dream home. I often recommend this to people who are relocating from the north and are not sure of where they want to buy or how big of a house they want to purchase.

The cost of buying a home is not cheap, we all know and respect that. Depending on the location that you choose within the Tampa Bay area, the costs can vary. Buying a home entails many costs especially if you do not have the immediate finances. But the rewards of home ownership make it all worthwhile. Some of the costs to consider are the initial down payment, closing costs, property inspections, taxes and of course homeowners insurance. In a renting situation, the landlord usually covers the costs of maintaining the apartment (fixtures, property landscape, etc). But of course, the rent that you pay will include these things, and rent in this area is getting more and more expensive all the time.

Buying a home opens up the option of choice in terms of architectural style and place of living. While the opposite applies for renting. Often you might be obligated to choose the place to rent that is cheaper and often not the best looking. That simply means renting can pigeon-hole you into living in an area or structure that although may be available and within your price range, it may not appeal to your sense of style.

Owning your own home is about benefiting from long term personal and financial satisfaction. Your own home means security and also having the option of creating the dream home the way you have always wanted it. Home ownership is also about experiencing the freedom of having your own serious investment. The point of emphasis therefore lies in being equipped with the right kind of service that will help you choose which home is right for you. Talking to people who can help you know which option of owning are available to you is without a doubt the right step to take.

In the Tampa Bay Florida Real Estate area there is an abundance of houses and condos to choose from. While property prices during the late "05 season seemed to rise quite quickly, it's not too late to buy your dream home. Normally the best thing to do is to talk to a Tampa Bay, Florida real estate agent who can give you a better and realistic property pricing estimate.

Naturally what you have to remember is that your own needs are important. The type of lifestyle you envision can help you determine whether renting or buying is the feasible option.
