The Benefits of Leasing vs. Buying

So, what is leasing, and why would a New Rochelle driver choose leasing vs. buying?When you lease a car, you’re essentially renting it for several years. While you won’t build equity and can’t sell it or modify it, your monthly payments will be lower and your down payment smaller. You’ll also save on sales tax. Other benefits of leasing vs. buying include convenience and flexibility. When your lease ends, you can renew it, trade it, end it, or buy it. However, you must adhere to mileage restrictions or pay penalties at the end of the lease.

The Benefits of Finance vs. Leasing

The answer to “Should I buy or lease a car?” depends on your needs. When you finance a new vehicle, you take out a loan on the car’s value to pay it off, so you’ll have a larger down payment, have to pay more sales tax, and have larger monthly payments. However, you can sell the car anytime. You can customize it to your liking and put as many miles on it as you want. You’ll also recoup thousands of dollars you’ve invested into your loan’s principal. Financing is usually the most cost-effective long-term strategy, but it requires higher upfront costs and more significant commitment.
