As many of you may have already noticed, VIAINVEST has experienced some long-anticipated visual changes. Over the past few months, our design team has worked long and hard on giving VIAINVEST a fresh new look.

Those who are new to investing often experience a strong sense of trepidation and fear. After all, when your idea of “investing” involves crazed London Stock Exchange investors screaming to buy and sell, or memories of past stock market crashes, who wouldn’t be scared to invest?

Most of us have been told that it’s better to buy than to rent a home. Rent money tumbles down a massive black hole while mortgage payments build equity and financial security. Owning a home offers greater stability while renters outside of rent-controlled areas may find themselves forced to pay ever increasing rents—or the increases may eventually force them out of their beloved rental property.
But times have changed. The cost of real estate in major cities has skyrocketed to exorbitant prices. Contrary to popular belief, paying rent is also not akin to “throwing your money away.” Continue reading Renting vs. Buying a Home: When and Why One May Be Better Than the Other
