Deciding to Purchase a Home is a Big Decision – Let Us Help
If you have been thinking about buying your very own home in Raleigh, North Carolina, let the Capital City Real Estate Group in Raleigh help with that decision.
Some of the things you should consider about owning a home in Raleigh, North Carolina:
Investment v. Cost
When you pay your Mortgage each month, part of the payment increases the investment you have in your home and builds your equity. When you pay your Rent each month, the payment is going directly to your Landlord and increasing his equity each month.
Tax Advantages of Home Ownership
Did you know that Mortgage Interest and Property Taxes are deductible on your tax return?* Being able to deduct part of the cost of owing your own home actually reduces your total monthly cost by the amount of the tax savings. On the other hand, none of your rent payment is tax deductible.
*Please consult your tax advisor.
Is Homeownership a Good Investment?
For the majority of Homeowners, their home is their largest investment.
On average, home values rise by 4.5% per year and that figure takes into account the recent market conditions. How much interest is your savings currently paying?
