If You Can Rent, Then You Can Buy!

The housing market is stronger than it’s been in years, which is great news for buyers in West Michigan, Lansing, Michigan, and Auburn, Alabama. The strong market has opened the door to many new homeowners, such as new families, retiring couples, and individuals looking to get an early start, and to build equity for their future.

At Eastbrook Homes, we know the current market creates incredible opportunities for people looking to buy a home. However, there are a lot of potential homeowners who think they can’t afford to purchase and end up renting a home instead.

For most people, this is not true. If you can afford to rent a home, then you can afford to buy a home. People looking to move any time soon should consider their options carefully before making a choice.

Renting a home may give you some flexibility, but all of the money paid out of your pocket is simply helping someone else build equity in the home they own. Equity that could be yours, and that could be providing security for your future.

At Eastbrook Homes, we’ve developed a building process that helps our new owners through every step of the way, and that includes financing. We do things differently in order to ensure that traditionally challenging steps in the process are less stressful and easier to navigate.

We partner with a group of lenders who understand our process and can help our new homeowners find the financing package that fits their budget. Instead of applying a few months security towards a new rental, we want our buyers to apply a down payment to their new home.

Many of our Eastbrook Communities also feature models that are more accessible to new owners. Our Townhome models feature pricing that’s attractive, and attainable to first time buyers in communities such as Town Square, Macatawa Legends, Tannery Bay, College Fields, and soon Lowing Woods.

Eastbrook also has communities in many rural areas, which means our buyers can qualify for special purchasing options. By working with our Preferred lenders, many of our new buyers can receive 0% Down financing in beautiful townships around the area.

People who have questions about renting vs. buying, or financing in general, are invited to visit our Prairie Winds community on September 17th for our Fall Financing Event, an evening with our preferred lenders from Fifth Third Bank. Our special guests will be available to answer questions from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm while refreshments are served.

There are many other benefits to buying a home instead of renting, which include tax advantages, stability, and of course, equity that opens the door to future home ownership options and opportunities.

For more information, attend one of our financing events where your specific questions can be presented to our financing professionals or contact us today and see why Eastbrook Homes can give our new owners and first-time buyers more home for the money.
