The rent versus buy dilemma is one we all face at one time or another. So, how do you know which option is best for you? 

If you are going to living in the same place for a length of time over three years, it would be a great idea to go ahead and buy, especially if you have money to put down as a cushion for when you need to move. Also, if you are looking into having an investment property, this is another reason that you should consider buying and then letting a property management company take care of it for you. 

If you are unsure of the length of time you will be in a given area, renting may be the best option for you!
