Lakewood Homes For Rent

Looking for homes for rent in Lakewood? I certainly understand wanting to live in Lakewood. A wonderful "little" city (fourth largest in Colorado according to Wikipedia) nestled near the foothills of the Rockies, about ten minutes from Denver.

But what I don't understand is why are you looking for homes for rent here when it is so easy right now to buy a home in Lakewood?

Let's look at a few comparisons between looking at homes for rent vs homes for sale.

  • Typical move in cost for homes for rent usually require upfront deposit and first and last months rent.

Did you know to buy a home there are financing programs (subject to qualification, of course) that allow you to purchase with practically no down payment? Now, there are going to be closing costs, but we have many sellers offering to even pay those costs for you!

The next "myth-understanding" is that it costs more monthly to purchase homes vs monthly cost of homes for rent. Let's take a closer look at that.

  • homes for rent usually run between $1200 and $2000 per month

Did you know that with the interest rates as low as they are right now, you can actually purchase a home in the $200,000 range for less than that!
