Rent vs. Buy
The biggest financial decision many adults make is buying a house. It may be very difficult to tell which option is better for you. Especially if you feel that your credit needs a little work. The process can be longer in that situation. However it may be worth it when you think about the pros and cons of renting compared to buying.
While renting you can't always decorate your home how you want. Painting... you usually can't. No holes in the walls to hang your decor, and whatever damage you bring in the home, they take out of your wallet based on their pricing scale. They want to know who's living in the home at all times and they access to your home without your permission. Basically it seems like we are living in someone else's home that gives us rules.
When you buy a home that's your home. Anyone you want come visit or stay. You can decorate ow you feel fit. When its time for a change... paint, remodel, do whatever you want! Don't worry when something breaks because you can call around and find the best service according to your own judgement. The only person telling you what to do in this home is you. The best part is no one has access to your home but who you give a key to!! Remember once you buy this is yours. Yours to decorate, yours to keep, and your to sell one day and move into a bigger home.
We hope this has helped you decide on what you would rather do. Let us know how we can help you in your search. We can even help you decide based on your thoughts, credit, and maybe your future plans. Call Holloway today to find your way.

This is always good information to know whether you are wanting to buy or sell.

As far as rates these days, they are only going up. Now is the time to buy! Homes for sale in Shreveport are available now! For example, thirty year fixed mortgage rates went from 3.35% on May 2 to 4.51%. Rates rose due to the bond markets fears that the Fed would stop its bond-buying program, known as quantitative easing. The increase in rates means that the principal and interest payments on a $200,000 mortgage would raise from $881 per month to $1015 a month.
This is something for sellers to think about as well, if now it the time to buy then that means now is the time to sell.
