In fact, Cronkhite Homes makes it easier than ever to make the jump from renting to home owning. Rents are at an all-time high, so if you’ve been considering buying–now is a great time! Instead of paying your landlord’s mortgage down, invest in yourself!

Every year, rent costs rise by roughly 5%, meaning that what you pay in rent today will be approximately 25% higher in five years and 50% higher in ten years. When you buy a house, your mortgage rate will remain about the same throughout your period of ownership –whether you stay for five years or fifty.

Each time you make a mortgage payment, you build up equity. If you decide to sell your home, the more equity you have, the more money from the sale you get to keep. In contrast, between damage charges and cleaning fees, many renters actually owe money when they leave their rental properties behind.

Tax season is on the horizon and unlike renting, owning comes with a number of potential deductions and write-offs, including mortgage interest and private mortgage insurance deduction, among others. These deductions not only lower the tax burden at filing time but can help make homeownership a cheaper option over time.
