Buying a home might seem scary to many first time homebuyers. First times always make us nervous, but think about all those first times that terrified you then and today you're so glad you did whatever it was that scared you. Here's where a Realtor comes in.
We're here to help you through this first-time home buying experience. Remember, most of us not only help people buy and sell properties all year long, we've also personally bought and sold properties for ourselves. So let's get one thing straight:
RENTING is scary! BUYING A HOME is a thrill. BUYING a home is rewarding. BUYING A HOME is smart!!!
But it's such a costly investment, you say. That's true, but what about renting?
If you pay $2500 per month in rent, you are spending $30,000 each year. That comes out to $150,000 in just five years, and the worst part is you will not receive one penny back from that pile of cash when you move. When you own a home and sell it for a profit of $200,000 and higher, need we say more? AND remember, rent goes up, your mortgage remains the same for the most part.
So instead of freaking out over the thought of taking your hard-earned savings out of the bank and investing into a property, let's look at buying a home from a different perspective:
How about you are simply transferring your savings to a different entity? That would be your home. The money is still there, and for the most part that money (investment) is going to grow in leaps and bounds over the years, rather than earning less than one-half of one percent in annual interest from a huge conglomerate bank that has control over your deposited cash.
But when you own a home YOU have control over your savings.
Whatever money you put down on a new home, whether 5%, 10%, 20%, or more, you are just sliding those saving into a different account--your new home. Then you do what you want to your home to make it more valuable and create greater wealth, and bring you joy. One day, you'll sell that home and walk away with a lot more cash and buy something bigger that you can use to create even more wealth. Or you'll take out equity from your home and buy a second property. The possibilities are endless, and the sky is the limit.
