Have your rent payments been climbing steadily over the past year? You aren’t alone.
According to Trulia, rent payments have increased 5.4% over the past year (ending June 30), while mortgage rates are hitting all time lows. These two factors combined create the perfect scenario to move out of steadily climbing rent payments and into a new home with predictable mortgage payments and the ability to grow home equity.
