Houston Area Real Estate: Leasing Over Buying A Home

HOUSTON, TX — Is it better to buy a home, or is leasing the way to go?

Many in the Houston area have shunned home ownership, and are gravitating more toward the freedom of lease.

Renters who prefer apartments or condos often find they can save money on monthly utility bills, which are generally lower or are factored into a montly rental payment.

Plus, having a landlord look out for general maintenance issues can be a huge load off, too.

The same goes for lawn maintenance, but none of those so-called perks will likely apply if you rent a house.

Of course, whether you prefer a house, apartment or condo, you can find them all in any community in the Patch Real Estate Guide listed by our partners at realtor.com.
