Many people are hesitant to lock themselves into a mortgage or to
put all of their savings into a down payment. Committing to living in one place
for a long time might also seem unwise. However, there are several reasons why
buying a home rather than renting remains the wiser financial choice. Here are
five good reasons why buying a home is a better investment for your future.
1. Buying a home is a long-term investment.
Mortgage payments may be expensive and stressful in the short term. However, paying for a mortgage now will lead to a time when you're not struggling to
come up with monthly payments. If you rent instead of buy, you will always have
to worry about making monthly rent payments. 2. Rental rates will only go up.
Mortgage rates may be subject to some increases, but never as dramatically as
rental prices. For instance, if you take on a mortgage, you are only subject to
fluctuation for the duration of your mortgage. If you rent, you are subject to
housing price increases for the rest of your life. Buying a home now means you
won't have to worry about a sudden upswing in rental prices when you're living
off of a fixed income. 3. Monthly payments build equity.
Unlike rental payments, money put into a down payment and mortgage is never
really lost to you. Instead, it goes into building your equity. In other words,
it remains a financial asset in your ownership that can be liquidated,
transferred to your children, or used as collateral. Rent money, however, is
good for one month before it's gone forever. 4. Homeowners can make improvements.
Renters have little control over things like outdated fixtures that waste
water, in-efficient heating systems and outdated lighting, but they are usually
responsible for the utility bills. Homeowners can update heating, cooling, and
water systems and make their money back over the long-term by saving on energy
costs. 5. Homeowners can be landlords.
Buying a house as a rental property can provide a source for monthly income.
For those who are willing to share housing, renting out spare rooms can cover
the cost of a monthly mortgage payment. Owning a home means having a roof
overhead, and it can also be a good investment.
