It is currently better to buy than rent in Gilbert and Maricopa County in general. Rental prices have been soaring over the past few years as a result of the housing market crash and fewer people being able to qualify to purchase a home. This has driven the rental housing market up and created a lot of competition for renters which means that in many cases, it is cheaper to buy a home than it is to rent. With mortgage rates expected to rise in the coming years, now is a great time to jump into the housing market in Gilbert either as a first time home buyer or as a seasoned buyer. Interest rates are still relatively low and single family home prices in Gilbert start at around $175,000.
If you are renting a home, then that also puts you in a great position to start your house hunting journey because you won’t have to coordinate selling a home and buying a home at the same time. It might even be possible to time your home purchase so you can move directly from your rental into your brand new home! I would be honored to help you find exactly what you are looking for and turn you from a renter into a buyer!
