On the Fence (14 - 16 points)
You're on the fence - you understand the pros and cons of buying and renting, though you are not quite sure of where you fit in. If you are opposed to homeownership because you do not want to do yard work or pay for repairs, then you should consider buying a townhouse or condominium, which often takes care of the grounds. Likewise, if you see yourself moving within the next five years, it may be smarter to rent. Either way, a Realty PRO Hansbarger Realty professional is there to help you find your perfect property.
