Real Estate’s Best Kept Secrets (known only to the trade): Rent vs Buy…. Why should I buy instead or rent? No. 1 Reason;

 Rent vs Buy…. Why should I buy instead or rent?

Freedom from rent increases and from a landlord telling you what you can and can’t do!

  • Potential tax benefits
  • Potential home appreciation 
  • Pride of home ownership
  • An opportunity to build wealth for you and your family
  • A host of other great reason’s to buy

No. 1 Reason: Equity Building 

This is how you can build wealth and potentially own your home free and clear with no mortgage at some point in the future.

With each mortgage payment you build more equity in your home. I don’t have to tell you how landlords have a nasty habit of raising your rent and the impact that has on your finances. And, as you know each rent payment you make has no financial benefit to you, as it is dead money. So how would you feel if each month your mortgage payment was made up of interest and PRINCIPAL?

For example, let’s say you buy a home next month, and shortly after the deal closes you get your first mortgage statement with the due date and the payment amount.As you read the statement it breaks down the monthly $3,000 payment into $2,500 + $500 PRINCIPALSo, when you make that payment, you have reduced your outstanding loan balance by $500.  And assuming it’s a fixed mortgage, then with each successive month you’ll pay LESS INTEREST and MORE PRINCIPAL. 

At some point, years down the track, there will be a flex point where your monthly payment will comprise more principal and less interest.

And this is how people build real wealth, and you can too.
