Do You Really Think Your Landlord Pays for Repairs? | Simplifying The Market
[:en]A recent article that appeared on Nasdaq.com addressed the issue of whether it is best to buy or rent in today’s real estate environment. The article was very fair in discussing both options.

However, there was one portion of the article that we questioned. One of the experts was quoted as saying:

“For some people, the choice is very clear: Buying a home can be more costly, given the cost of the purchase itself, plus taxes and insurance, plus maintenance and repairs.”

This argument is often made in defense of renting. However, we don’t believe it makes logical sense. They claim that, as a renter, you won’t have the expenses of “taxes and insurance, plus maintenance and repairs”. Do they really believe that the landlord pays all those expenses for their tenants?

The vast majority of landlords own rentable real estate as a form of investment. As any other investor would, they expect to make a return on that investment (ROI) – otherwise known as profit. In order to make a profit, the landlord needs to include EVERY expense they incur into the rent…AND THEN ADD A PROFIT MARGIN!!

We think it is incorrect to advise a prospective renter that they won’t have the same expenses that a homeowner would have. They just pay those expenses to a landlord with a “premium” built in.[:es]Un artículo reciente que apareció en Nasdaq.com abordó la cuestión de si es mejor comprar o alquilar en el entorno actual en bienes raíces. El artículo fue muy justo en debatir ambas opciones.

Sin embargo, hay una porción del artículo que nosotros cuestionamos. Uno de los expertos fue citado diciendo:

“Para algunas personas, la elección es muy clara: comprar una casa puede ser más costoso, dado el costo de la comprar, más los impuestos y el seguro, además el mantenimiento y las reparaciones”.

Este argumento se hace a menudo en defensa del alquiler. Nosotros no creemos que tenga sentido lógico. Ellos afirman que, como inquilino, usted no tendrá los gastos de “los impuestos y el seguro, además el mantenimiento y las reparaciones”. ¿Realmente creen ellos que el arrendador paga por todos los gastos de sus inquilinos?

La gran mayoría de los arrendadores son propietarios de bienes raíces rentable como inversión. Como haría cualquier otro inversionista, ellos esperan recibir una rentabilidad en la inversión (ROI) – También conocido como ganancia. Con el fin de obtener una ganancia, el arrendador necesita incluir CADA gasto que pueda incurrir en el alquiler… ¡Y LUEGO AÑADIR UN MARGEN DE GANANCIA!

Creemos que es incorrecto asesorar un inquilino futuro que no va a tener los mismos gastos que un propietario tendrá. Ellos simplemente pagan esos gastos al arrendador con una “prima” incluida.[:]
