Stop Renting – Start Owning Today with Historically-low Interest Rates†

mortgage rates

Last week on July 16 the federal mortgage interest rates dropped to 2.98% for a 30-year loan which was the first time rates have fallen below 3% in the past 50 years. Rates won’t stay this low forever, making this a prime time to stop renting and start owning! There are so many benefits that can come with owning a brand-new home.

Making the step to homeownership allows you to embrace many benefits in addition to living the American dream. Owning a home may provide potential tax breaks while also creating a second stream of revenue when home values rise. Additionally, owning your home gives you the flexibility to update, customize and decorate your property as you see fit. When you invest in a new home, you invest in yourself! Here are some key benefits to help you get moving today:

  1. Build Equity – you can’t build equity in an apartment or rental property, but you may in your own home.
  • Fixed P&I Payment – Your rent can increase when your lease is renewed. With a fixed-rate mortgage and especially at today’s great rates, the fixed principal and interest payments won’t go up.
  • Customize Your Space – want to personalize your home to reflect your unique taste? Owning means you can do so without having to worry about losing your security deposit.
  • Tax Deduction* – your rent payment is typically not tax deductible, but the interest portion of your mortgage payment could be. *Consult your tax advisor
