Home ownership is more affordable than rent…

With rent on the rise, the purchase of a home is a trend that is once again catching on. According to Trulia, “in 98 of the 100 housing markets, buying a home is more affordable that renting”. With the average rent for a 3 bedroom in Columbus at $1199 per month, you will find that owning a home is more affordable according to The National Association of Realtors Housing Affordability Index. The time is now to purchase a home for many reasons:

Pride of Ownership-You can decorate and make the home yours with your personal touches.
