Did you watch the video, Sacramento renters? Real Estate is just beckoning to you and my suggestion as a REALTOR® is to at least check-in to it. You want to make sure you get into real estate before we start the slide upward. Get into real estate on the ground floor…that’s where we are right now.
It is my understanding interest rates will go up mid year this year and with all the perks there are for buying a home today, I believe renters and tenants should look into purchasing their own home. Not everyone is ready for the responsibility of home ownership but if you feel you are ready, give me a call and I’ll hook you up with a good lender to find out just how much you are qualified to purchase.
First time home buyers only need 3.5% as a down payment on an FHA loan. It really isn’t going to get any better than this. With interest rates for mortgages being lower than anyone alive has ever seen in their lifetime, I would say this is an opportunity you as a renter don’t want to miss out on.
It sure is nice not to have to use a community or public laundra-mat and park your car under a carport. Homeowners can paint a room any color they want, nail anything into the wall and have appliances they chose but best of all not listen to all the loud neighbors in an apartment.
And then there’s that little thing called paying off your landlord’s mortgage versus paying off your own on your new home and getting the added perk of deducting the interest you pay on your home mortgage payment yearly at tax time. And yes, it almost that time again…
Not too shabby…so you might want to consider being a Sacramento First Time home buyer!
