Why pay someone else mortgages? I understand there are certain situations out of your control that force you to rent. If capable or considering to buy look at these charts and if interested we can set a time to meet and ill help you get started understanding home ownership.
It costs more to rent then to buy: Heightened rent costs, first last months rent, security deposits both animal and traditional up front often costs 2-3 times more then the costs of a VA 0 money down home loan. Learn about out of pocket costs Here. ( link to costs in VA center)
Unfortunately I am only licensed to sell homes. I do not handle any property management. Im happy to help you out of the clutches of renting with its restrictions, and wasted money paying your landlords mortgage.
