This is the first time I am writing a blog–ever. I am excited and nervous, but ready to give it a go! The first topic:
WHY BUY NOW?
1. HAPPINESS. The feeling of homeownership is superb. You can fix it up, make it your own, get a pet, or plant a tree. Doesn’t that sound exciting!
2. APPRECIATION. Home values have an established history of going up over time. This increase becomes equity you can benefit from.
3. TAX SAVINGS. Homeowners receive excellent tax benefits. Mortgage interest and home-related expenses can generally be deducted from your income.
4. EQUITY. Homeownership allows a portion of your mortgage payment to go towards the principal balance, which acts as a type of savings.
5. EDUCATION. Research shows children of homeowners get higher test scores and graduate at a higher percentage.
6. GROW ROOTS. People who own their home usually stay in their community 4 times longer. This allows for opportunities to connect with neighbors.
I’m keeping this one short and sweet, but there is much more to add. Text/DM/Call/Email me to talk more about it!
