Renting Instead of Buying in Roanoke

Renting Instead of Buying in Roanoke

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, October 19, 2011

So many Americans today think they should own a home. But there is that argument that says renting is better.  While home ownership provides security, but not the returns provided by equities. Using history as a guide, you can reasonably expect roughly 8% annual gains on your stock portfolio over the long term. House prices, on the other hand, tend to follow the rate of inflation.

Finally, don't forget that even with the tax-breaks of home ownership, you will still be incurring out-of-pocket costs that you wouldn't encounter as a renter from the cost of ripping down wallpaper to repairing a leaky roof, even gas for the lawn mower. Before you think about buying, estimate how much the costs will be. Don’t put yourself in the position that you are living hand-to-mouth even if it is in your own home.

Draining Your 401(k) for a down payment

Even though it is an option, withdrawing money from your 401(k) to fund a home purchase is a bad idea. Assuming you're not at least 59 1/2 years old, you'll owe taxes plus a 10% penalty. You will also cripple your retirement savings, since most plans won't allow you to contribute to your plan for at least a year following a withdrawal. This means you're going to lose out on your company match as well as future tax-deferred contributions, not to mention the earnings on the money you've withdrawn.

Borrowing from a 401(k) isn't much better. If you leave the company for any reason, you run the risk that your loan will be called immediately. While out of your account, those dollars will also miss out on any market gains, and that tax-deferred growth.

The newest data confirms once again that the Roanoke Region of Virginia offers a comparably low cost of living -- second lowest metro in the Commonwealth and 7.4% lower than the national average.  The Roanoke Region's cost of living index value is 92.6 compared to the national average of 100, according to the Council for Community and Economic Research's Cost of Living Index for the second quarter 2011. The Roanoke Region's costs are lower than nearly 65% of metros across the country.
 
The region's cost advantages are strong across the board but are particularly strong in terms of food prices, housing costs, and transportation costs.

The City Market building just reopened in Roanoke, and if you have not seen it yet, now is the perfect opportunity.

It is a tasting event all about local Virginia wines; come to The Cellar door at the City Market. Much more than a wine tasting, it is a social event. Wine is a big piece of Southwestern VA, so this historic city market is going to showcase plenty of it. Our local agriculture includes wine, so come on out after work and sample vintages from 4 local wineries, as well as a meadery, there will also be hard cider available.

All the wines to be sampled will be brought down by the growers and producers who will tell you about the wine and their vineyards. You may even learn how to taste wine at this low pressure wine tasting event.

Wine will be for sale by the glass and by the bottle. The Cellar Door at the City Market happens on the second Thursday of each month through November and is only $5 per person. Get a great wine tasting glass and when you return on the second Thursday of the month, it is only $1 when you bring your glass.

  • Designate a safe room with no widows or exterior walls.
Plan for Your Personal Safety and Security
  • Keep emergency phone numbers by the phone; include out-of-state contacts for family members.
  • Assemble an emergency preparedness kit (enough supplies for three to five days) with bottled water (one gallon per person per day), battery-operated radio or TV with extra batteries, first aid kit, flashlight and packaged snacks. Remember to include baby supplies and food, manual can opener, hand sanitizer or wipes, and extra house and car keys.

Rent Smart!

Rent Smart!

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, August 11, 2011

Nearly 40% of foreclosures today involve a single family house, condominium, or other housing rented out by its owner. When this occurs, the renter can lose their lease and be forced to move on short notice. This is just one of many reasons why it is smarter to rent from the professionals at HHHunt than a private individual! HHHunt is a professional management company that gives their residents peace of mind, great amenities, customer service, and convenient locations.

One of the most important aspects of renting at an HHHunt Community is our amazing on-site maintenance teams. With an individual owner, you will typically have to wait for contractors or your landlord to address any issues. Single family homes rarely have a pool, fitness center, or a full-time management team to answer questions. Lastly, many private owners and landlords do not understand your rights as a resident but our teams are well-trained in this area. Peace of mind is our goal for you.

We hope that you continue to rent smart in the years to come!
