Home Ownership, Yay or Nay?

With interest rates reaching new heights every few months, is this still the time to buy a new Door County home?

The answer is absolutely.  Historically, rates are still lower than they were 40 years ago (even 25 years ago) and this re-blog of an excellent post shows how home ownership is still the true path to wealth.  Remember, renting is making some ELSE wealthy.  If you're searching for a Door County dream home, I can help.  View the entire Door County MLS at moredoorcounty.com today.

 

Door County Dream Home

Original content by Doug Dawes 92593-B

It's the Great American Dream that most people strive for. Some buy big homes and others buy smaller homes and some will always rent. But, in the end, owning a home has many benefits and is the best way to accumulate wealth. 

Homeownership Wins Over Time

MaryKay Shumway it is not even close.  Homeownership has FAR more benefits than renting.

It still is a great time to buy, as in Denver, prices are down, so still a good deal.
