Deciding to purchase a home is a big financial step, but there are several benefits to owning your own piece of paradise.

Benefits of owning a home

  1. Build equity – As you make updates to your home, you can increase the value of the property and resale price when you are ready to move again.
  2. Tax benefits – You may be able to deduct the interest from your mortgage payments on your taxes.
  3. Improve credit score – If you pay your monthly mortgage payment on time every month, you can improve your credit score over time.
  4. Freedom to make the space your own – Once you own a home, you may have more opportunity to add your personality to your place compared to renting.
