Is It Better to Buy or Lease?

Buying and leasing have several benefits that are well worth exploring. Deciding on the one that’s best for you depends on your particular preferences. For instance, when you buy a car, it will be yours to put on as many miles as you’d like. Additionally, your credit score generally won’t have to be as high as it would if you were leasing.

Advantages of leasing include that your down payment and monthly payments usually won’t be as high since you’re not financially responsible for the vehicle’s entire value. Plus, there may be a chance you won’t have to provide a down payment.
