First Time Home Buyer Benefits

There are many first time home buyer benefits that far outweigh renting. Here are just a few:

Building Equity

Equity is simply the difference between what you owe on the property and the value of the property. Each monthly payment increases your equity as you are reducing the amount you owe (principal reduction).

Building Wealth

Your equity increases as the value of the property increases. This is called appreciation. Appreciation can be through increased market value due to market forces in your area, through home improvements, or a combination of the two.


When you own your home and have a fixed-rate mortgage your housing expense will not fluctuate as it can when you rent. A landlord has the opportunity to increase your rent each year. A mortgage is a contract and your lender cannot change your principle and interest payment because market conditions have changed.

Tax Benefits

Your rent payment includes not only your landlord’s profit margin, mortgage principal, and interest but also the property tax. Your rent is not tax-deductible. When you own property both the mortgage interest and real estate tax paid each year can be deducted from your income tax.


You can make changes to your property to suit your individual taste and desires. You don’t have to ask permission from your landlord!

Purchasing A New Home

While your new purchase might be your second or third property, a vacation home, or even an investment property it’s probably not something you do week in and week out as I do. There are constant changes when it comes to purchasing a new home. From existing programs, regulations, and documentation requirements, and each state will be different. It is my job to be on top of this in IL, WI, and FL, so I can provide you with a stress-free and seamless transaction.

Refinance: Consolidate Debt Or Cash-Out

There are many reasons you may want to refinance, consolidate debt, or cash out. Reducing your interest and payments are the most obvious but there are others. Accessing the equity in your property to consolidate high-interest debt, increase monthly cash flow, provide cash for home improvement or even finance a child’s education are just a few. Contact us to discuss your specifics and I will prepare a detailed proposal to meet your requirements.
