Own versus Rent | CBH Homes

It’s on every renters or first time buyers mind, do I own versus rent? CBH Homes will be the first to tell you OWN is the only way to go, but let’s get to the details on why.

Own versus Rent

Many people may think, “I can’t afford to own a home”. We’re here to tell you, YOU CAN! Check these numbers out:

When you rent, $1,000 per month can get you a whopping 800 sq. ft. apartment in Meridian, Idaho. Here’s what else you can look forward to in an apartment:

  • Zero Equity (your landlord gets all the money)
  • No Yardcbh-homes-blog-treasure-valley-market-appartment
  • Shared Walls
  • Deposits (that you’ll hopefully get back)
  • One Parking Spot (if you’re lucky)

When you buy CBH Homes, $1,000 per month can put you into a 2,710 sq. ft. shiny, new, awesome home in Meridian, Idaho. Don’t forget all the other perks of owning a home:

  • An Investment (put money back in your pocket)
  • Your Own Yardcbh-homes-blog-treasure-valley-market-home
  • Room for everything
  • A Garage (say goodbye to scraping those windows)
  • No Landlord (go on and have a pet or two)
  • Tax Write Offs (thanks Uncle Sam)
