Why buying beats renting.
Buying a home is an exciting experience—not to mention a challenging one. But in the long run it’s also the wisest choice for many reasons. Compared with renting, home ownership offers many advantages beyond the pride that comes with owning your home and living the American Dream.
- Mortgage interest is tax deductible.
- Real estate taxes are deductible.
- Ownership builds equity, so you can one day ™move up™ to another home, with a good down payment on hand.
- Mortgage payments, unlike rent, usually remain stable.
- Home ownership improves your credit rating.
- A home often appreciates in value.
