Why You Should Buy a Home

June is National Homeownership Month
Have you considered buying a home in Florida? From being a prime location to live to increasing your net worth, there are many advantages to owning a home in Central Florida. As June is National Homeownership Month, we weigh in four benefits of purchasing a home.

Consistent monthly housing payments

No longer will you have to deal with the unpredictability that comes from renting such as lease termination, change in landlord or rent spikes. As a matter of fact, buying a house rather than renting is often a more affordable option. While home insurance rates and property taxes may not always be steady, you are able to pay the same amount of fixed rate throughout the entire time of your home loan through a fixed-rate mortgage.

Beginning your retirement mortgage-free

There’s no feeling like getting to live in a house you can fully call your own. Once you pay off your mortgage, you’ll be able to allocate money you’d be spending on housing to other things you’ve been wanting to splurge on. Now that’s an attainable Florida retirement dream!
If the house you’re purchasing isn’t the one you want to officially settle in forever, you can always sell it and use the money to fund your retirement. After all, the average American has about double in home equity as they do in their retirement savings.

Receiving Florida tax benefits

Owning a home in Central Florida gives you the advantage of getting to claim some extra tax deductions such as:
  • Mortgage interest
  • Mortgage points and insurance
  • Property taxes
  • Medical home improvements
  • Energy efficient upgrades


Earn extra income

Whether you choose to hire a property manager to lease your property to a tenant, host with Airbnb (the average host earns about $924 a month!) or rent out a spare room, by owning property you have the opportunity to earn passive income.
Owning property in Florida is something to take pride in. It’s a milestone to celebrate! While it is a significant commitment, the financial and lifestyle benefits make it a worthwhile investment.

7 Reasons to Own a Home

7 Reasons to Own a Home

  1. Tax benefits. The U.S. Tax Code lets you deduct the interest you pay on your mortgage, your property taxes, and some of the costs involved in buying a home.

  2. Appreciation. Historically, real estate has had a long-term, stable growth in value. In fact, median single-family existing-home sale prices have increased on average 5.2 percent each year from 1972 through 2014, according to the National Association of REALTORS®.  The recent housing crisis has caused some to question the long-term value of real estate, but even in the most recent 10 years, which included quite a few very bad years for housing, values are still up 7.0 percent on a cumulative basis. In addition, the number of U.S. households is expected to rise 10 to15 percent over the next decade, creating continued high demand for housing.

  3. Equity. Money paid for rent is money that you’ll never see again, but mortgage payments let you build equity ownership interest in your home.

  4. Savings. Building equity in your home is a ready-made savings plan. And when you sell, you can generally take up to $250,000 ($500,000 for a married couple) as gain without owing any federal income tax.

  5. Predictability. Unlike rent, your fixed-rate mortgage payments don’t rise over the years so your housing costs may actually decline as you own the home longer. However, keep in mind that property taxes and insurance costs will likely increase.

  6. Freedom. The home is yours. You can decorate any way you want and choose the types of upgrades and new amenities that appeal to your lifestyle.

  7. Stability. Remaining in one neighborhood for several years allows you and your family time to build long-lasting relationships within the community. It also offers children the benefit of educational and social continuity.
