SHOULD I BUY OR RENT?
Does it feel right? The decision to purchase a home is one of the most important choices of one’s life. It requires a lot of thought and planning. We are experts in determining if the purchase makes sense in several ways.
Will it change my life in a positive way? There are multiple studies which have shown owning a home ties that individual or family into the neighborhood and community. You begin to feel like you belong. Homeowners become more involved with those who live near them. They share neighborhoods, businesses, and places of worship.
Does it make economic sense? We can assist you in doing the math to determine if owning a home saves or costs you money each month. Will your house payment be less than renting? Often it is. How much can I afford? Our tools can help answer that important question.
Will the tax advantages to ownership really help? We are not C.P.A.’s, but we can assist in looking at your personal situation with your tax bracket.
What are the costs of maintenance if I own the home? These are real costs one needs to consider. Maintenance of the home and yard come with expenses and time invested. We can help you budget.
Will I be better off financially in three, five, twenty years? Owning a home is a long-term investment. Coupled with enjoying having neighbors as friends, the economic benefits of tax advantages and appreciation of one’s home make the decision often easy to make.
