Making the decision to buy your first home is both exciting and confusing. It’s more than just a financial decision – it’s a place to settle down, raise a family, plan for the future and become part of a community. Getting your first mortgage is unlike any financial transaction you’ll have likely made before, and the whole process can be overwhelming. Relax – we’re here to help.
Renting can be a good option for people who are right out of college, settling down into a new city or are just not ready to commit to a home. However, there are more benefits to owning than just being able to paint the walls any color you’d like. You could be building equity in your home, building your net worth and can deduct your mortgage loan interest from your federal income tax. That adds up to a lot of savings over the course of the year.
