Buying Instead of Renting: Condos & Co-Ops
In today’s market, many homeowners are opting for renting over buying because of market conditions, rental rates, economic causes, and many other contributing factors. However, homeowners may want to consider the benefits of buying something affordable, such as a condo or co-op. While there have always been tons of reasons to become a homeowner, here are just a few of the best reasons to consider buying, instead of renting.
#1) Appreciation Value: Through home ownership, you may achieve the greatest overall value of appreciation value on your co-op or condo.
#2) Easy Sale: Selling a condo is considerably easy. With fixed costs for maintenance, community security, along with ample other benefits, living within a condo has tons of perks, so selling comes easy!
#3) Financing: Financing a condo offers considerable options when it comes to buying. Speak to a local mortgage department, or just click on the link for fast access to mortgage information – www.simortgagegroup.com
#4) Simple Ownership: When buying a condo, ownership is easy. With tons of financing options, it makes owning a condo as simple as 1-2-3!
#5) Covered Maintenance: Maintenance costs for condos cut out all the guess work for homeowners. Consider that when the cold winter months hit, and the snow is already shoveled, or hot summer months when the pool is clean and ready for use.
#6) Exclusive Rights: When renting, you may not have the freedom to change the unit or do any kind of alterations. When owning a co-op, you have the exclusive freedom to make any changes to suit your living needs.
#7) Tax Deductable: Payments towards ownership may be tax deductable. Deducting eligible expenses helps you to cut costs, and save money.
#8) Cheap To Buy: Condos and Co-ops are considerably easier to afford then regular homes. Not only are they more affordable, but you are also forced to save money, rather than pay off someone else’s mortgage!
#9) Mortgage Rates Are Low: Now is a great time to buy, rather than rent. With mortgage rates at an all time low, this is a great opportunity for those looking to buy, to take advantage of a low mortgage rate. This fixed rate also can’t go up, so you know exactly what to expect!
#10) Privacy: Living within a secured building, as well as a community, offers a sense of security for those living there. Knowing that there is either a gated entry or registry to sign in, homeowners get a sense of relief in knowing that people in the area are there for the right reasons, therefore making those who don’t belong, stand out.
