When you move to a new area, particularly for a new job, one of the many decisions that may be considered is whether you should rent or buy a home in your new city. There are additional questions one would consider:
- How long will I be here?
- Does it make sense from a financial perspective?
- Where would I live if I am not familiar with the area?
The list of questions goes on, but for transplants to the Pacific Northwest the answer is pretty simple, YES! Buying property in either King, Pierce or Snohomish Counties is a practical move given our booming economy and market. If you stay 1 year or 10 years, the property you purchase will more than likely cost you less than renting while you reside in the area. Given the increase in rents, if you leave the area you can convert your property to an investment vehicle or sell it and use the equity for your next move. Finding the right area is just a click or call away, let us help you answer those burning questions around buying!
