Why Rent When You Can Buy!

Lennar Bay Area home

With rents on the rise, now is the ideal time to stop renting and start owning! Quit paying your landlord each month and invest in a new home you can call your own! A variety of new homes are available in the Bay Area market where you can enjoy the many benefits that come with homeownership and a brand-new Lennar home.

With a variety of designs to choose from, including single-family homes, townhomes, condos, paired homes and Next Gen® homes that provide a flexible private suite, as well as fantastic locations near everything that makes the Bay Area so desirable, there’s something for everyone. Here are just a few reasons why you should buy now and why you should buy new:


Have the ability to start building equity now

Real estate can be one of the smartest investments a person can make. You can’t build equity while renting, but you may in your own home.

Fixed P&I payment

Your monthly rent almost always increases when your lease is renewed. With a fixed-rate mortgage, the fixed principal and interest payments never go up.

Tax deduction

Your rent payment is not tax deductible. The interest portion of your mortgage payment could be deductible. Consult your tax advisor for additional information.*

Advanced technology & design

Retrofitting an older home to include some of today’s technology can be costly and time consuming. Wiring, appliances, and windows are just a few features that have greatly improved. Buy new and take advantage of current technology and design.

Reassurance and everything’s completely new

Enjoy the amazing new home feel and greater peace of mind thanks to the select warranties that can come included with a new home.
