Owning versus Renting
While we’re sure you’ve heard the horror stories about underwater mortgages, subprime lending and foreclosures, you shouldn’t be scared. Owning a home is part of the classic American dream for reasons that are as sound today as they ever have been.
For many people, their home is their biggest financial investment. When you pay your rent, kiss that money goodbye forever. When you pay the principal on your mortgage, you’re really helping yourself by building equity in your investment. Building equity in one of Boulder’s neighborhoods is a smart choice! Boulder offers a lifestyle rivaled by few.
On April 15, you’ll actually look at your mortgage and smile. The interest you pay on your home loan is tax deductible. The same goes for your property taxes. Your rent, however, is not.
Your home is exactly that, yours! There are no landlords to worry about or fast approaching lease deadlines.
