The Most Appealing Aspects of Homeownership

A post from my site at SimplifyingTheMarket.com published this past week . What is most appealing about homeownership to you?

The National Association of Realtors (NAR) just released their first issue of the Housing Opportunities & Market Experience Survey (HOME). In the report, NAR revealed what Americans believe to be the most appealing aspects of homeownership.

Here is a graph showing the results:

It is interesting to see that the two most appealing aspects had nothing to do with money, but instead, addressed the non-financial benefits of homeownership.

"We’re excited to welcome Laurie to EXIT Gold Realty," says Debbie Houck, Broker/Owner of EXIT Gold Realty. "EXIT is growing and attracting quality business people like Laurie each and every day."

"I have been a Realtor for over twenty years and have spent the last ten years of my career in Real Estate on Maryland’s lovely Eastern Shore." Laurie Dellane says. She goes on to explain that she specializes "in buyer representation, first time home buyers, relocation, and all aspects of home seller representation and marketing.   I service all of Queen Anne’s County including Kent Island, StevensvilleChester, Grasonville, Queenstown and Centreville, Kent County, Talbot County, as well as nearby Anne Arundel County. 

 When you are thinking about buying a home on Maryland’s wonderful Eastern Shore, let me put my experience and extensive local knowledge to work for you! My job is to know the local Queen Anne’s County real estate market. I study the local market daily to ensure I know exactly what trends are occurring. I can give you the pros and cons of all of the local neighborhoods to help you purchase your perfect home while avoiding any pitfalls. With such a wide variety of homes from waterfront homes to condos and amenities in our area from pools to boat slips it is important to work with a realtor who will listen to your needs and work hard to find you your dream home. Buying a home will likely be the greatest financial investment you will ever make and I take that seriously. Let me help assure it is also your wisest investment."

When asked about the demands for an agent in the current real estate market she stated: "Today’s market demands an agent who will work hard for you to get your home sold. Gone are the days of simply putting your house in the Multiple List System and waiting for a buyer to come to you. My comprehensive marketing plan will get your home sold by offering maximum exposure. Your home will be seen by more potential buyers than any of my competitors are offering. Every agent is going to put your home in the MLS, but what else are they going to do for you? In addition to the MLS I will create a website for your home. I will also have it on every possible internet and social media site available. Your home will also be advertised in the appropriate local newspaper."

Buying vs Renting Your Home

Posted by Petra Quinn on May 1, 2014 at 8:30 AM Comments comments (0)

Buying vs Renting Your Home

Is now the right time for you to buy a home? You have many options to consider and choices to make. Buying a home is a big responsibility, financially and emotionally, but, most people want to own a home.

Homeownership often is referred to as "the American dream." Why is it so special? Among the reasons: Real estate often is an excellent investment, perhaps the number one source of wealth building for families.

Owning a home has many benefits. When you make a mortgage payment, you are building equity and that's an investment. Owning a home also qualifies you for tax benefits that may assist you in dealing with your new financial responsibilities such as homeowners' insurance, real estate taxes, and upkeep, which can be substantial. But given the freedom, stability, and security of owning your own home, they are definitely worth it! Owning your own home also can be a great source of pride and stability.

But homeownership may not be for everyone. It's a big financial commitment starting with the initial shock of your purchase (including a "down payment" and fees paid to a real estate agent, the lender and others)

followed by years of monthly mortgage payments, real estate taxes, property insurance, and maintenance costs. When you decide to purchase a home, you accept responsibility for paying for these expenses. They are additional costs to your monthly mortgage payment and should be included in your budget estimates: Property Taxes and Special Assessments, Home/Hazard Insurance, Utilities, Maintenance, Home Owner Association (HOA) Fee if applicable.

One of the advantages of renting is being generally free of most maintenance responsibilities and the flexibility of moving almost as soon as you decide. But by renting, you lose the chance to build equity, take advantage of tax benefits, and protect yourself against rent increases. Also, you may not be free to decorate without permission and may be at the mercy of the landlord for your housing needs.

Home ownership also comes with short and long term tax advantages. The mortgage interest and real estate taxes are tax deductible, which allows you to subtract part of your housing related expenses from your taxable income and could reduce your tax bill. In many cases, the amount of money a renter spends on rent can be about the same as or less than the amount a homeowner spends on a mortgage. With the tax benefit for homeowners, the savings can be significant. 

Buy vs. rent: cost comparison

The chart below shows a cost comparison for a renter and a homeowner over a seven year period. The renter starts out paying $800 per month with annual increases of 5%. The homeowner purchases a home for $180,000 and pays a monthly mortgage of $1,000 (based on a 4% interest rate and 20% down payment). After a year, the homeowner's payment is lower than the renter's monthly payment.

YR Rent Mortgage Monthly Diff. Yearly Diff.
1 800 842 - 42 - 504
2 840 842 + 2 + 24
3 882 842 + 40 + 480
4 926 842 + 84 + 1008
5 972 842 + 130 + 1560

2 - 30 Savings increase every year.

And remember, with taxdeductible interest, you'll save even more!
