Deciding to buy a home or continuing to rent is a thought that occurs in every adults life. Each has its pros and cons. Plenty of thought and careful planning is needed before making a decision.
When you purchase a home its yours, no one else's. This is a very liberating feeling but remember you are now responsible for all the home repairs that come with it. On a upside you have security and stability of where you live. Also, knowing that you now have more creative freedom with the decor of the home is another alluring benefit of home ownership.
When you own your own home you are more likely to put down roots. Neighbors become more like family because you have lived in the same home for many years. Children will have their own room till they grow. When they return for visits with their own family they can share memories, showing exactly where they skinned their knee, baked their first cake, etc. The knowledge that a home becomes something more is a reason why so many would rather buy then rent.
There are ways to offset the cost of your home that may help in your decision to buy. You can deduct your property taxes and also the interest paid on your mortgage when tax time rolls around. To control your budget better look into a fixed rate mortgage. Fixed rate mortgages mean your monthly payment will be the same every month.
