Choosing a Home
MAKING A DECISION TO BUY A HOME
Why and when should I buy a home?
Today, home buyers have more choices than ever before. You can choose financing options that are flexible and affordable, home styles that fit a variety of lifestyles, and professional services that make the process fast, effective and enjoyable.
Buying a Home can be a good investment opportunity. A house offers leverage and the possibility for appreciation in value. And, you can use this investment while it’s working for you!
You can’t afford to overlook the tax breaks of homeownership. Since mortgage interest and property taxes are deductible, homeownership can save you money each year.
Young people aren’t priced out of the market. Figures from the National Association of Realtors put the average age of first-time buyers at 32 years old.
Renting doesn’t protect you against rising prices. Rental units are just as susceptible as houses to increases in taxes, insurance, utilities and other costs. Landlords will pass along these increases to the tenants.
Waiting for prices to drop can work against you. Home prices fluctuate from city to city, and go up more often than they go down. Don’t put off buying a home waiting for prices to come down.
