I just read the article below and knew it'd be helpful for those first-time home buyers who aren't sure if they're ready yet. The article says some things I'm sure you've all heard, like how buying a home is a good investment. It also gives some reasons that a lot of people don't think about but can be really important, like putting down roots in a community.
Once you've decided to buy, the next big hurdle is making sure you're financially ready and have a solid understanding of all of the steps and costs in buying a home. This can definitely be daunting. The Huemmer Home Team offers a free first-time buyers home consultation. We go over everything you need to know, from starting your search to closing on your new home. Even if you're not thinking of buying until next year, I highly recommend doing this short introduction as soon as you can. That way, when you do start your search you'll already feel 100% confident. If you'd like more information, click the "First Time Homebuyers" tab on our home page.
In the meantime, read the article below to learn more about why people are buying homes!
"4. Interest rates are currently very low. This makes it relatively inexpensive to take out a mortgage. The lower the interest rate, the less you actually pay for your house and the sooner you can pay the mortgage off. Use our calculator to see how different interest rates affect the total cost of your mortgage and the time it takes to retire it."
