Tired of being a renter and getting what seems like a less than ideal living situation than you’d like?
If you’ve ever thought of becoming a homeowner, now might be the time to start thinking seriously about the advantages of buying a house instead of renting. You might be surprised by what you stand to gain when you put your hard earned money to work for your future instead of making your landlord wealthier with each rent check.
Buy a Home for What You’re Spending In Rent Rental costs have been on the rise for years now, and it’s not inconceivable to pay the same or less per month on a mortgage payment than what you’re forking over in rent payments. Home loans are available with different terms, so you can work with the budget you already have in place or adjust it slightly.
A Solid Investment It’s no secret that real estate continues to be a great way to invest in your future. A well-maintained home typically gains value as the years pass, and you can sell your home later if you choose to upgrade or if your family moves.
More Control, More Freedom When you own your own home, you’re the decision maker. There’s no more asking the landlord again and again to make simple repairs. You choose how to handle repair and upkeep, giving you the freedom to shop around for the best contractor for the job. You’re also at liberty to remodel and make changes as you please!
Better Environment = Happier Living Imagine no more noisy neighbors upstairs and finally getting away from the freeway traffic just past the apartment complex. The great thing about buying a home is that you decide the location based on a neighborhood that feels like home to you.
Financial Perks Becoming a homeowner is a big responsibility, but with that comes some great benefits for your wallet. Obtaining a fixed-rate mortgage to buy your home means that your payments never fluctuate, allowing you to know how much you’ll be spending from year to year. Homeowners also may be able to itemize at tax time, including property taxes, insurance, and mortgage costs for a deduction.
