Deciding To Buy – with today’s interest rates and a wide variety of housing options and prices, buying a home may be one of the best long-term investments you will ever make. But before taking the big leap to homeownership, it is important to consider your personal needs and financial situation carefully.
One of the easiest ways to evaluate your decision to buy is to ask yourself “If all else were equal, would I rather rent or own my home?” It is safe to say that most of us would opt for home ownership.
Owning a home is not for everyone. It’s a big responsibility that may require some sacrifices and possibly a lowering of expectations. Remember, features like fireplace, ensuite bath, double-garage, over-sized lots, and private beach all add dollars to the price of any home.
