The housing market tends to move in cycles, and unfortunately there isn’t a pinpointed date of when things will shift in favor of the sellers. So, here are a few more reasons why now is the time to buy a home in Henderson, KY.
Appreciation: With mortgage rates at near historic lows and foreclosed properties on the market for a steal, you’re sure to net a higher profit if you live in your home until the market turns around.
Property Tax Deductions: Real estate taxes for your first home as well as vacation home are completely deductable. If you’re a first-time home buyer (congrats!), check out IRS Publication 530 for more information on what deductions homeowners are eligible for. If you still have questions, feel free to ask me, your Henderson, KY real estate agent, and I can help point you in the right direction.
Preferential Tax Treatment: If you own your home for more than a year and receive more profit than the allowable exclusion after the sale of your home, the profit will be considered a capital asset. Capital assets are given preferential tax treatment. (quickenloans.com)
Equity Building: Your credit, loan flexibility and APR all determine what type of mortgage you will take out on your new Henderson, KY home. A new trend is to pay more each month to pay off the principle balance faster, lock in a low interest rate, shorten the length of the loan, own your home faster and significantly decrease the amount of interest paid on the loan. This is called equity building.
Pride: Owning a home is a goal for many people. Not only do you build equity, ideally make a profit and become entitled to tax advantages, you have a place to call your own. Pride in homeownership goes beyond the monetary advantages and still an active part of the American dream.
