Renting vs Buying a Home


Is renting a home better?

Rochester’s economy is one of the strongest and most stable in the state and its continued growth (largely due to the Mayo Clinic’s expansion) makes buying a home in Rochester a great investment.

Why else might you want to buy instead of rent?

  • You can own a much nicer home for less money than you would pay to rent it
  • Tax deductions
  • Equity
  • Freedom to make a house into a home that reflects your lifestyle and personality
