Renting vs. Buying?
Which is better?
Maybe you’re in the process of selling your home and you’re wondering whether it’d be better to rent or buy…
Well, at Flavortown Properties, we’ve been helping home sellers get a fair cash price for their home in Columbus for quite some time. Over the years, we’ve seen the pros and cons of both buying AND renting.
So we thought we’d take a moment to share those pros and cons with you.

In our opinion, buying is a good idea if you can afford the down payment and don’t mind taking on the risking of OWNING the asset, while renting is a good choice if you can’t afford the down payment and/or don’t want to be responsible for the value of the asset.
Hopefully, you now have an idea of whether renting or buying is a fit for your needs. If you need to SELL YOUR HOME, however, then give us a call at (614) 665-5619 — we specialize in helping people sell their homes fast and as-is for a fair cash price!
Thanks for taking the time to check out our website. We are local Columbus residents that focus on buying properties off-market (with no commissions) for cash. We are not “flippers” or “investors” looking to pay pennies on the dollar. We are local Buckeyes with families and we focus on buying rental properties. This allows us to make fair market value offers based on comparable sales and needed repairs. We are a small, but mighty team that thrives on helping others and works toward a common goal that provides a positive outcome for everyone.
