 Why Buying A Home Is Still Better Than Renting 

With the current sellers' market, aspiring first-time home buyers may not want to give up on that competitive house hunt! In many markets, including the Las Vegas market, first-time homebuyers can save money by owning.

Buying a starter home is more affordable than renting in nearly half of the largest U.S. metros, according to a new study released by realtor.com®.

In general, the U.S. median rental price has climbed nearly 10% year over year to $1,607. That is 15.5% higher than the monthly payments for a starter home, the lower-priced tier of homes for sale in a market. Low mortgage rates are helping to offset recent jumps in home prices! The Las Vegas rental market has seen an increase in rent by over 23%!

“Sky-high rents and historically low interest rates have made the monthly cost to buy a starter home lower than renting one in nearly half the markets across the U.S.”

Southern Nevada's rental market has accelerated amid a broader housing boom that has been fueled by the variety of benefits to buying a home in Las Vegas & people re-locating to Las Vegas from more expensive cities.
