5 Reasons to Buy a Home

by Tracy Hookstra | May 14, 2015

If you are currently renting and have been on the fence about purchasing your first home, The KCM Blog recently posted 5 outstanding reasons why you should take the plunge (via Eric Belsky’s, the Managing Director of the Joint Center of Housing Studies at Harvard, paper The Dream Lives On: the Future of Homeownership in America.)

  1. Housing is typically the one leveraged investment available
  2. You’re paying for housing whether you own or rent
  3. Owning is usually a form of “forced savings”
  4. There are substantial tax benefits to owning
  5. Owning is a hedge against inflation
