One thing you should seriously think about – Why continue to pay rent each month, year after year? This money that you layout each year to a landlord is allowing them to build equity in their own real estate investment and not allowing you to build anything!
The cost of rents will always go up and up. If you are paying a mortgage payment, with a fixed interest rate, the cost of your monthly housing expense (principal & interest) will stay the same AND you will be paying yourself (building equity).
Another point to consider is the Tax Benefits– you will be able to write off both the interest that you’ve paid each month and the property & school taxes.
There are many other great reasons to own a home!
