Florida Real Estate Market. Is it still worth it to buy a home?

Real Estate Market Why owning a home pays off in the long run

One of the biggest questions I’m getting right now is: should I still buy a home today? Here’s what I can tell you. While the headlines are focused on the market cooling in recent months, they don’t paint the full picture of why homeownership is worth it. While those short-term changes matter, homeowners win in the long run, and I can prove it. We know that home values typically rise with time. And we’ve certainly seen that over the past few years. But here’s what I want you to really focus on. On average, home prices have risen by two-hundred-and-ninety percent over the past thirty years in this country. That’s almost three hundred percent growth. Now, why does this matter if you’re thinking about buying a home? It goes to show homeownership wins over time. As home values grow and as you pay down your mortgage, you build equity. And that gives your net worth a big boost. With time, you could be sitting on significant amount of home equity. Homeownership is a play that wins in the long run. If you’re ready to invest in your future, let’s connect. And by the way, I can help you with your real estate needs in Northeast Florida personally and I can also connect you with a great real estate agent no matter where you are in the country.
