To continue renting or finally making a purchase on a condo..

Thursday, July 28, 2011

I want to buy a condo but I’m really not sure. Our lease for the place we rent comes to an end October 31, 2011 and we’ve given our notice. We have been spending $875.00 on rent for 2 years, so do the math that is $21,000.00 of money that just gets thrown out the window pretty much.
The condo we are interested in is a 2 bedroom in a nice area, newly constructed. The mortgage is $190,000.00 which is steep for a condo but it is a very tasteful place.
Decisions, Decisions!!

Here are a few pictures of the place:

Ahh what to do!

    I think the SQ feet is a bit over 1000. It's about a 5-8 minute drive away from the big city (Ottawa, Ontario). If we were to live there we'd probably end up paying double.

    It looks nice. I agree with you that rent like throwing money away... You could be paying down your mortgage instead of someone else's!

    I don't know what's reasonable in your area, but here, $190K is CHEAP. Looks like a decent size too. Do you know the square-footage?

    My boyfriend and I are looking right now too... It's kinda interesting, being in the market. We thought we had found the *perfect* place, but it turned out that the strata was scary-involved and there was a BBQ ban. No go! Keep looking...

    Good luck on whatever decision you make! :)
