Your home is much more than a place to store your things or keep you dry when it’s raining outside. It is also a very important component in your overall financial foundation.
3 Financial Advantages of Home Ownership
- The Mortgage Interest Tax Deduction: Perhaps the most powerful financial incentive for owning (versus renting) is the home owner’s ability to deduct certain expenses (such as mortgage interest) from their taxable income*.
- Forced Savings – Equity: Most people would love any opportunity to build equity in something of value over time. You may enjoy chipping away at your loan’s principal balance with each monthly payment. Depending on the program you select, you might only see small momentum at first. But over time the percentage you’re contributing toward the equity in your home will continue to grow – as will your feeling of self worth and satisfaction.
- Long Term Potential for Appreciation: There are no guarantees the home you buy will appreciate in value. In fact, sometimes real estate can actually drop in value. However, if you research the past 75 years of our country’s history, you’ll find that over time real estate purchased properly shows propensity for long term appreciation.
You Have to Love Your Home
Although the financial advantages are terrific, you have to love a home and be prepared to care for it before making the leap to home ownership.
