Hi Again Friends!
I recently had a conversation with a young lady who shared with me that she had made the move to Salem from Portland. One of the primary reasons she shared was the ever climbing cost to rent in the Portland Metro area.
It might be hard to believe - but rents, even here in Salem, are seeing increases pretty much across the board. And more often than not folks, like my earlier conversation, believe that renting is more affordable than purchasing. Or that they can't make ownership work within their monthly budget.
Here's a quick graphic that might help dispel that worry.
Of course, you always want to run your household's income/expenses to verify these percentages - but at the very least this might be a catalyst to have a more in depth conversation with a mortgage professional to see what you really can afford!
As always, please let me know if you have any questions or if I can be of any help.

I wanted to share this quick graphic with you that shares some interesting information about what folks consider to be their strongest, and best long term investment.
This insight definitely goes hand in hand with the level of activity we're seeing with our Buyer clients presently. Buyers are taking advantage of still low rates - which offers great buying power. And with tight inventories, Sellers who opt to enter the market now are taking advantage of pent up Buyer demand! Competition is low for those in the market right now!
As always, if you have any questions - or if The McLeod Group can help in any way, please don't hesitate to call! Because at The McLeod Group..."We'll Get You Home!"
