Homeownership Is a Good Financial Investment!

June 13, 2017

 

According to a recent report by Trulia, “buying is cheaper than renting in 100 of the largest metro areas by an average of 33.1%.” The report may have some people thinking about buying a home instead of signing another lease extension, but does that make sense from a financial perspective?

 

Ralph McLaughlin, Trulia’s Chief Economist explains:

 

“Owning a home is one of the most common ways households build long-term wealth, as it acts like a forced savings account. Instead of paying your landlord, you can pay yourself in the long run through paying down a mortgage on a house.”

 

The article listed five reasons why owning a home makes financial sense:

  1. Mortgage payments can be fixed while rents go up.

  2. Equity in your home can be a financial resource later.

  3. You can build wealth without paying capital gains.

  4. A mortgage can act as a forced savings account.

  5. Overall, homeowners can enjoy greater wealth growth than renters.

Bottom Line

Before you sign another lease, let’s get together and discuss all your options.
