Rent or Buy? Here’s What Freddie Mac Has to Say

Posted On: Tuesday, November 6th, 2018

RentvsBuyWith rent prices climbing higher over the past years, many renters question whether they should rent or buy. A new survey by Freddy Mac found that 78-percent of renters across all generations still believe that renting is more affordable than owning a home.

Within the past months, Apartments.com listed more than 2,000 units for rent in Fairfield County, with Zillow listing about 530 standalone houses available on a rental basis.
