Why rent when you can buy?

Invest Your Rent In Your First Home

The only one who benefits from your rent check is your landlord. As a renter, you never see that money again. But as a homeowner you can profit when you sell. In addition, as a renter you can’t use any of your rent payments as a tax deduction like homeowners can. If you or someone you know is renting, it’s time to put that rent check to better use! Now is a great time to buy. After years of being priced out of the market by high home values, first-time home buyers are seeing some excellent reasons to invest in their own homes today. Here’s why:
  • Lower (even bargain) prices in some areas
  • Good selection of homes to choose from
  • Greater flexibility from sellers on terms and contingencies
  • Very affordable interest rates
  • Special federal and local government tax incentives
  • Variety of mortgage options.
Some of these benefits won’t be around for long, so the sooner you decide to buy, the more advantage you’ll have. You’re in the driver’s seat. Of course, first-time home buyers are also first-time mortgage borrowers, who are not only comparing homes to purchase but also weighing all their different mortgage options. What makes current renters especially attractive to mortgage professionals — and to home sellers — is that they don’t need to sell a home before they can buy. That helps simplify and speed the transaction for everyone – making you a sought-after home buyer.
