5 Reasons Buying a Home is Better Than Renting!

Purchasing a home offers amazing financial benefits. Renting a home offers amazing financial benefits for the owner of the property you are renting from. Keep that in mind the next time you think about staying in your rental.

1. You Are Paying For A Home Regardless if You Rent or Buy

Some will argue renting eliminates the costs of property taxes and home repairs. All renters should realize that all the expenses your landlord must incur (property taxes, repairs, insurance and etc.) are rolled into your rent anyway along with profit margin.

Too many bad things have happened at that beach when swimmers enter the water to talk about. 

For safe, family fun SEE Jamestown Beach Park.

Bring a grill to cook out or enjoy one provided for you! Watch the ferry go back and forth between Jamestown and Surry. (I have the perfect spot to stay to share with you in Surry)Listen for the cannon to sound from Jamestown Settlement
