WCI #201: When to Rent vs Buy a Home
It is that time of year again when many doctors start asking, should I keep renting or buy a home? Well, truthfully many are asking how can I get someone to loan me money for a home right now? But what we wish they were asking is should I buy a home at all, and if the answer is yes, should I use a doctor mortgage (https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/doctorloan) or a conventional mortgage? We are going to jump into all these questions in this episode. Home ownership is great when done at the right time and right place. We hope this episode will help you be successful identifying that time and place for you.
