Welcome back to the Capital City Real Estate Group video blog! I’m Marc Iafrate, Broker-in-Charge of the Capital City Real Estate Group here in Raleigh. Today we are going to discuss if you are You Ready to Make the Leap into Home Ownership? Here’s How You Can Tell…
Are you ready to make that leap from living at home or renting to owning a home of your own? While everyone moves at their own pace, here are some signs that you can use to determine if it is time to own your own home. Let’s take a look at some of the reasons you can use to justify your decision.
Are You Sticking Around?
If you plan on moving soon for a job or think that you won’t be in town much longer, it may be better to rent. However, if you are thinking about living in the same town or within the same county for years to come, it is time to put down roots.
Do You Have a Steady Job?
Those who have a steady job and know that they have a stable salary may want to make the move to home ownership. As long as there aren’t any other major debts eating away at into your income, you can probably handle a mortgage and other costs associated with home ownership. The equity that you build in your home can help you build wealth for the future if and when you want to retire. Your home may also make a great rental property in the future, which can help you diversify your portfolio and keep you solvent by providing cash flow for years to come.
You Are Spending More Time Watching Television Shows Related to Home Ownership
You may have caught yourself recently watching shows revolving around people or couples who are looking for homes. You may also be watching programs dedicated to giving tips as to how you can upgrade your home. If you watch these shows frequently, it may be a sign that you are ready to move out on your own and take on the exciting challenge of being a homeowner.
Are you ready to be a homeowner in the near future? Only you can say for sure if it is time to take that next step. However, those who are looking for a long-term housing solution may be ready to make that move.
