What are the Benefits of Buying a House?9 Sep Rina Peiffer
Congratulations! You decided that you want to move into a house, but now have another choice to make: rent or buy? What is the difference? Does it truly matter which decision I make? YES! Home ownership has many benefits, both financial and personal!
Predictable monthly payments.
When purchasing a home, you can lock in your mortgage rate over a span of 30 years. When renting, a landlord can increase the payment amount whenever the lease expires. A fluctuating monthly payment can be unpredictable and hard to plan for!
Owning a home is one of the best investments you can make. It gives you a valuable asset that appreciates, or earns, money over time. "A $200,000 home today should see an increase in value to $250,000, $300,000, or more—depending on how long you plan to live there and market conditions." A benefit for your future self!
Property taxes, accounting costs and mortgage-interest are all tax-deductible. Homeowners save an average of $3,000 in tax deductions alone. WOW!
Buying a home can seem more expensive and daunting up front than renting. However, buying is the more affordable choice in 58% of U.S. markets. Who doesn't want to save money?
Feeling inspired by HGTV and want to knock down a wall and install some shiplap in the dining room? One of the biggest benefits of owning a house is that you CAN!
When renting, you can potentially get kicked out at the end of a lease period. When you buy a home, it's yours. You decide if and when you want to move. Stability is priceless!
