Thinking of owning your first home? Well you have came to the right place! Owning a home can give you and your family a place to call home………. and a sense of “this is mine, and I can do what I want to here” and a place to enjoy your hobbies and belongings.
Buying a home with a fixed interest for a 30 year period will keep your payment stable, even if inflation pushes rent and houses up in value again…..which seems unlikely now, but if history remains true-it will happen again.
The market is fantastic now for a first time buyer due to the large amount of choices and GREAT deals. The payment will most likely be LESS than rent on a comparable rental due to the low interest rates as well as all of the above!
Additionally, if you haven’t owned a home for 36 months, the US government will also offer you 10% (up to $8000) if you close on your new home before December 1, 2009 from the 2009 housing stimulus incentive. This is an outstanding benefit, if your plans include home ownership!
Tax improvement: the legislation of Indiana has given homeowners a cap on your taxes at 1% of market value which gives much more long term stability to the house payment, which should maintain property values and help limit foreclosures in Indiana.
