f you’ve been wondering if now is the time to give up renting for good, you’re not alone. In 2020 and 2021, we’ve seen more and more first-time homebuyers enter the market. Why? Well, owning a home comes with several huge benefits.
Security and stability
Having a place to call yours, and yours only, can take a huge amount of stress away. You don’t have to worry about finding your next rental or if your landlord is going to sell the apartment. No more stressing about packing up and moving or about what you’re going to do after your lease ends. And if you want to start a family soon, or want to give your kids a more permanent place to live, you really can’t beat the security and stability of owning a home.
Buying a home is a major financial decision. For many people, a home is the most expensive thing they’ll ever buy. But owning a home is more than just an expense—it’s a financial investment. By paying into your mortgage each month, you’ll build equity in your home. Basically, you’ll be able to get that money back when you sell the house, instead of paying rent and having the money just disappear. And because property appreciates over time, your investment will grow and increase your return.
One of the best parts about owning your own home is that you don’t have to get anyone’s permission to paint a wall purple if you want to. You can hang shelves and art, paint, redo your kitchen, and change your floors as much as you want. When you own your home, you can customize and decorate to your heart’s content.
Whether you want to buy a home for the first time or upgrade your current property, now is a great time to buy. Interest rates are at historic lows, which means you can save big on your mortgage. There are also several mortgage options available just for first time buyers that can make getting your own home easier.
