I just read this story from the Boston Herald. It’s great info. Basically, it says that most people who rent single-family homes end up wanting to buy a home of their own.
I think that’s some pretty sound math. I can definitely relate from personal experience. I rented a single-family home before I bought, and it helped out with the big learning curve of homeownership.
So maybe you’ve been thinking of buying one of the many gorgeous townhomes and condos on the market in Uptown. Well, here’s your chance to rent one before signing a 30-year mortgage.
I like this one bedroom, one-and-a-half bath loft at 3110 Thomas Avenue. Unit No. 301 is gorgeous and perfect way to try-before-you-buy in Uptown. The layout makes the most of the super-high ceilings, and unlike a lot of one-bedroom lofts, this one has an enviable kitchen.
The unit is just over 1,000 square feet — the perfect size for one person and their possessions — and has exceptional closet space for loft living. It’s part of the 588 Lofts development, and has tons of great amenities. The location — just across the street from Griggs Park, and within walking distance of the McKinney Avenue Trolley and the Dallas Arts District — makes this building great for someone who wants to ditch their car and use alternative transportation.
And for $1,800 a month you get hardwood floors, in-unit washer and dryer, granite counters, a fitness center, a pool, and a really cool fire pit. Look like your cup of tea? Get in touch with Jason Lucas at LocalDwelling.com.
