In Apollo Beach, Prices Say It’s Better To Buy Than Rent
We bet you’ve heard all about the benefits of homeownership: the equity, the stability, the tax breaks. Maybe you’re debating with yourself, to rent or to buy? If so, chances are that finances have crossed your mind. Unfortunately, there are many lingering myths about homeownership, especially the financial aspect. One of the biggest myths? That renting is cheaper than buying. In fact, the Tampa Bay Business Journal has disproved this myth once and for all.
The TBBJ found that the average price of rent in Apollo Beach is $1,688. In Waterset, single-family homes start at just $244,990 - that comes out to about $1,053 for your monthly mortgage payment!*
Another way to look at it? With the $1,688 you’d be paying towards renting an average 3-bedroom apartment, you could purchase a $370,000 home, such as the Bayshore I by Homes by WestBay.** This spacious floor plan offers 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and a 3-car garage!
