I'll Show You How to Use your Tax Refund to get into a Home

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Suburban


This is not the first time I've written about this but the time is coming near when you will either do your taxes or look forward to receiving a tax refund. What will you do with it? Did you ever think that it could springboard you into a new home?

I'm the first one to agree that saving for anything nowadays is tough but this is surely something you should think hard on as the average refund in Illinois is $3022. That's a nice chunk of change.

Using 3% down in Illinois 52% of that down payment (3%) is tax-deductible making the savings even better!

Let's get started on your homeownership now!

Lyn Sims good advise on how to put a tax refund to work.  No better investment than purchasing a property.

Lyn, this is a very timely post. With all the speculation as to what the corona virus may due to the housing market, we need to focus on the positive aspects that affect our business. And tax refunds are always a positive element driving new home purchases. Thank you!

Good point. A tax refund could be the "in" to homeownership.

I don't get a refund, I plan better than that.  I send them what they are due, not more.  My daughter on the other hand gets a huge refund, which is good for her.
