Your Guide to Buying vs. Renting

There are many benefits of home ownership, but is it right for you? Learn why purchasing a home may be beneficial to you.

Why Buy? Here Are Some Reasons

Create the Home You Want

With no landlord to answer to, you can build your house into the home of your dreams. There's no need for anyone else's approval or permission.

Deduct Interest on Your Taxes

Unlike rent payments, the interest you pay on your mortgage may be tax-deductible. You may also be able to deduct home equity debt and real estate taxes.

Keep Your Monthly Payments Low

You can find a mortgage whose monthly payment won't go up as the market fluctuates, whereas your rent is typically raised or adjusted each year.

Build Your Equity Every Month

When you purchase a home, you're making an investment in your future. Each mortgage payment you make increases your equity in the house.
