Top 10 Reasons to Buy a Home - Now

These are 10 simple reasons to buy a home. They are 10 informed reasons to buy a home. They are 10 logical reasons to buy a home. And this list is approved by a veteran loan originator who knows how to get a loan closed in this restricted environment. I have been at more than one closing that Addie Drolette has patiently and competently helped occur.

  • It Builds Equity - Home ownership builds equity for future uses such as college expenses, home-additions, retirement, etc.
  • Available Financial Assistance - There are many programs that help a buyer not only with the financing but also with the down-payment. Sovereign Bank has access to many of these programs.
  • It's a Buyer's Market - Today we are in a buyer's market with plenty of homes to choose from. No need for a buyer to settle for anything less than the house of their dreams.
  • Deduct Property Taxes - Real estate property taxes paid by the buyer may be tax deductible.*
  • Mortgage Interest Deduction - Mortgage interest paid may also be tax deductible.*
  • Appreciation - Real estate values move in cycles, sometimes up, sometimes down, but over the years real estate has consistently appreciated in value. This can lead to a re-sale price higher than what a homeowner originally paid.
  • Equity Loans - A homeowner can get an equity loan that usually has a low interest rate and the interest paid on the home equity loan may also be tax deductible.*
  • Freedom - Homeowners are free to choose paint colors and landscaping that reflect their personal style. They can even adopt a pet without getting a landlord's approval.
  • Interest Rates - Today's rates are among the lowest they have ever been. Sovereign Bank has fixed rate mortgages with flexible repayment options, as well as ARMs to fit any need.
  • Pride of Ownership - Home ownership gives a person and their family a sense of stability and security.
  • Now is the time. There are good buys at every price point! I have closed transactions from $300K to $2.7 mil in the last 6 weeks. A good loan originator is a key to a smooth closing on Cape Cod.

    Heath - Great list of reasons to buy. The interest rates are amazingly low, right!

    Heath, great post, and thanks for re-inforcing this great opportunity for buyers - as agents we need to keep reminding all buyers out there of the benefits they are missing on.

    Heath, this is very helpful.  Your experience falls into the "buyer beware" category.  If I am buying a used car I always have my independent mechanic check it out.  Now I can help him through the site you have shared. Happy motoring.
