Learn about the advantages of homeownership below:
TAX SAVINGS favor homeownership
A significant portion of your mortgage, interest, and property taxes are tax-deductible, as are the capital gains on your home (at age 55).
A Home Provides Excellent LONG-TERM VALUE
Home values have sustained growth through the years. There is no better financial investment than homeownership. It’s the best hedge against inflation. Your “guarantee” of the increased value of the real estate is the only commodity in the world that is absolutely limited in supply. The growth in population constantly increases its demand.
You choose the style of the structure, landscaping, colors, furniture, and decor. Since you are the landlord, the freedom to arrange or rearrange things to suit your needs is limited only by your creativity and imagination.
Your home is your castle, the place where you can enjoy the many facets of your personal lifestyle. It can be the center of activity or a quiet refuge. It’s more than a place to eat and sleep; your home is an integral part of your lifestyle.
Security and knowledge go hand in hand with homeownership. Your feeling of security will be enhanced by the knowledge that your home, a major investment of a lifetime, is a safeguard against inflation. As time passes, a smaller share of your earnings will go towards this housing expense. Owning a home is the beginning.
You establish roots because your home makes you a part of the community. Your neighbors are homeowners too, often with backgrounds much like your own.
