It’s an age-old question "Should I rent or should I buy a home?"
Join author and business journalist, Jane Hodges, for a discussion about today's real estate landscape.
Once considered an integral part of the American dream, owning a home is quite a different reality than it was just 50 years ago. And despite tempting prices and low mortgage rates, it's no longer right for everyone.
Enter Rent Versus Own: A Real Estate Reality Check for Navigating Booms, Busts, and Bad Advice (Chronicle Books) by journalist Jane Hodges. It's a must-read for anyone who has ever thought of buying a home, which, let's face it, is most of us.
It offers tools and anecdotes that expose the new circumstances in which owning a home makes sense--and when it doesn’t.
In this book, Hodges provides a witty, smart, and objective look at the housing market during these tumultuous financial times.
Adult refreshments will be served.
