Renting is becoming increasingly more expensive. According to a recent report, rents in April of 2015 were 4% higher than the year before. It’s the fastest increase we’ve seen in 24 months, overrunning home prices which only rose by 3%. The affordability of rent is becoming increasingly more expensive. As of right now, it doesn’t look like it's going to slow down anytime soon.

Rent being on the rise isn’t something new, especially to Southern California residents. The trend has been steadily rising since 2000 and unlike home prices, which took a hit when the economy took a dive in 2007, there's been no downward trend in rent.

What has surprised us most is that even while taking into account rising rents, the demand for rentals continues to rise alongside prices. Should you buy or rent? This is a question most of us will likely face in our lives, whether buying a house makes more financial sense than renting a home. There is a way to understand the financial impact of buying vs. renting. The realtor.com® rent vs. buy calculator can help you calculate the net cost of buying a home versus the cost of renting over time. Click on the picture below to see whether renting or buying is right for you.

If you're a member of the San Juan Hills Golf Club, look for my ad in the back of the 2013 Men's Club Directory....and look for me on the course with you.

Going on two months without a day off, 7 days a week 12+ hours a day...I'm beginning to check out out emotionally and mentally. But don't worry, this is where I've gone in my mind and hopefully soon in body.
