We are pleased to be working with a number of young professionals who are seeing the wisdom of home ownership in the near future. The very real threat...make that reality of contined rent increases....the lack of privacy....the desire to have someplace that they can call "their own" are all factors that combine to put them in the home buying market.
In addition....when we have our Buyer consultation...we have the "Did you know that buying a house can also 'give you a raise' ?" discussion.
First time buyers have never experienced the tax deductions of interest and property taxes. We know what we know and what we don't know....soooo we refer buyers to an accountant who can show them in black and white...how they can change their exemptions and increase their take home pay rather than have the government use their money and get a larger tax refund. There are some people we know who choose to have the government be their "piggy bank" and use their refund for a large purchase because they don't trust themselves to be able to save the amount they are refunded. Do whatever works..but know the advantages of both ways and weigh them before deciding. This is a good example of going to the "highest and best source" for information on being big decisions.
If you or anyone you know is considering buying a home in southeastern Wisconsin....Call the Hansons...we will be happy to research the housing opportunities...the benefits and deliver the world class service you deserve for all things real estate.
