First Time Home Buyers
Thinking about buying that first home? Now is one of the best times to do so. Low interest rates combined with low prices and numerous homes on the market make it an ideal time to purchase your first home.
Being a homeowner brings many benefits. First, you have the benefit of the pride of ownership. When you own your property, you can paint, hang pictures, change flooring, and even remodel without any concern for what another person, like a landlord, thinks. It is truly your space to do with as you wish. But outside of this, there are also economic benefits to owning a home. First, you receive tax deductions for mortgage interest. Second, you build equity as property values increase over time or you reduce the principle on your mortgage through your monthly payments. That equity can be tapped into through loans when you need extra cash, or it can be saved for the eventual sale of your home. Then you can use the equity for a nice down payment on your next home as you move up. When you rent, you receive no tax deductions, and you are spending all of your money funding someone else’s investment. And with modern mortgage products, you don’t have to have a lot of money for a down payment in order to do so.
