Deciding to Buy
Purchasing a home is probably the biggest financial decision you will ever make. Whether this is your first purchase or you are moving on to a different vacation home here in the Lakes Reigon that better meets your needs, this decision must be made carefully.
1.1 Why Do You Want To Buy?
Have you outgrown your current home? Would you like a larger yard? Would you rather live in a different area? Do you want to shorten your commute? Having a clear sense of your reasons for buying will help you choose the right home.
1.2 Has Your Income Grown?
Home ownership can be a very good investment. As you pay down the principal part of your loan, you are building equity over time in addition to any market appreciation on your property.
1.3 Can You Afford To Buy?
Experts recommend spending between 33-40% of your income on housing. The tax benefits of home ownership can provide a considerable advantage. For more information and for any additional questions, please feel free to contact me at any time.
