There's both good and bad to your situation. While buying, you can at least see where your money is going every month….and that would be in an investment property instead of rent. WHEN YOU RENT YOU ARE BUYING SOMEONE ELSE A HOUSE….. There are some GREAT TAX ADVANTAGES to owning an investment property like this that few people are aware of but your dad would need to discuss this with a Tax Advisor. The best thing is, right now is a fantastic time to buy and finding a good deal is out there that COULD benefit him greatly in 6 years from now. The Real Estate Market will come back…it always does. I recommend he find a good Buyers Agent/ Realtor in the area and at least look at what is out there. Get all the facts about any property then he will be able to make a more informed decision.
As troubled properties are sold-off, including short sales in which banks cooperate with homeowners to sell a property for less than what is owed on a mortgage, conditions are expected to improve. Boston is now forecast to see average home prices decline just 4.2% for the year."
