Hi David,

It appears that the average rent in that area is around $750.00 per month. I looked at 3 bedroom homes in the CBH sub. They range from $700 - 950 per month but the majority are advertising about $775.00 rate per month. Are you looking to buy a home for an investment to rent? I would be happy to assist you if you need any thing else.

Thank you,

Quick answer = "It depends". . .

If your looking longer term, buying makes more sense because that way you are paying off your home instead of your landlords home. Also, you get the benefit of tax write offs instead of them.

Short term - typically rent. The 100 year average appreciation of homes in America is about 3.5%. So typically, it would take about 3 years appreciation to cover the cost of buying and reselling.

Look at the cost of rent for a home you might be interested in and then figure out what the mortgage payment would be on the same house. Typically, right now, the monthly payments would be less to buy than rent. Also, via creative finance, I can typically move buyers in Emmett into a home purchase for less out of pocket than their security deposit and first months rent!

I would be glad to help you review numbers specific to your needs if you like.

Best of luck!

Hi Terry,

I'm afraid that I've only been able to find one property on our site with a Firefox Lane address that has a map:

Might you be able to direct me to the other properties you've found on our site so I can investigate? I haven't been able to locate Firefox Lane in a general map, though I do see other homes listed at that address when I perform a general search online. If the homes in question are very new, this may simply be a very new street that has yet to be mapped on major search engines.

Best Wishes,

Zip code population (2000): 14,201
Estimated population in 2005: 15,316
Obviously the zip code covers a larger area than just Emmitt.

You might check out the website for more information. Lots of demographic info there including incomes, growth, male vs female, etc ... more
