BUYING VS. RENTING
Since the phrase "the American dream" was first coined, home ownership remained a major priority for individuals and families. Buying a home is considered by most to be the wisest investment they've made because house values increase over time.
In contrast to renters, most homeowners receive significant tax breaks, because interest paid on a home mortgage is usually tax deductible. Plus, rents go up over time, so obtaining a mortgage with a fixed payment make the payment cheaper over time when adjusted for inflation. And when the loan is paid off: No more payments! Finally, there's the personal satisfaction of having a home you can call your own to share and enjoy with friends and family.
So when is it a good time to buy? The best time is in a down market while prices and interest rates are down. This may be the time and opportunity you have been waiting for. Now is the time to explore your options!
