It would appear that there is a lot of demand for rentals. As larger companies contemplate raising their rents individual properties will follow. We have seen a shortage of rental inventory especially quality rental inventory. 

If you are renting and can afford the down payment or qualify for one of the down payment assistance programs you may want to look into purchasing. Perhaps I can help you with the process.

The economy is slowly getting stronger and interest rates although they are at historical rates will rise in the future months (probably sometime late this year).

There are many good reasons to buy if you can.
