The Financial Advantages of Renting

Residents often discuss the convenient flexible lifestyle of renting Atlanta apartments, but some advantages pay off in big savings! Renting a townhome or apartment can have certain financial benefits.

First, rent is consistent. A renter may expect the landlord to adjust the rent when a lease is renewed, but residents will pay the same monthly rent on their apartment rental. Unexpected emergencies and routine maintenance like lawn care and pest control are the sole responsibility of the owner. When you are buying a home and the roof starts to leak, you are responsible for costly repairs. Don’t expect the mortgage company or bank to help out!

Next is the matter of apartment amenities! All JAMCO apartments in Atlanta offer exclusive amenities that help residents keep more money in their pockets. Modern apartment rentals may include access to a fitness center and a swimming pool that will allow you to cancel your gym membership. Many of the properties owned by JAMCO also offer FREE Wi-Fi in their complimentary business centers, clubhouses and/or poolside!

Finally, there are the long term savings on apartments for rent. As we learned in 2008, the housing market changes. What if you must move to change jobs, to grow your family or some other reason? The market may not be in your favor when these major life events happen. Also, receiving a decent interest rate on a home mortgage requires a certain credit rating. Less than near perfect credit can increase your interest rate and add tens of thousands of dollars to the price of a home.  You can save more over time if you rent an apartment until you improve your credit.
