Top 5 Reasons to Secure Homeownership

June 10th, 2013

Miami homeownership has many perks, whether you’re investing in your first home or securing an income property.

Sydney Server Real Estate offers a wide range of options for prospective buyers, including lower priced REOs, fixer uppers, as well as ready to move-in luxury condo units. Based on a study by the New York Times, here are the top 5 reasons why individuals choose homeownership:

  1. Homeownership Builds Equity – despite past trends in high foreclosure rates and underwater mortgages in the state of Florida, history has proven time and again that the markets do bounce back. Today, resale prices are soaring, according to Condo Vultures, and new condos are priced higher than before. Equity may take years to build, but ultimately it places homeowners at a better advantage for the future
  2. Homeownership Builds Stability – according to the Homeowner’s Association, given that residents will live in the same place for a prolonged period of time, while building strong ties in districts. Professionals too, are able to network with related businessmen and women in the report.
  3. Fixed-Rate Mortgages Dissolve Uncertainty – when approaching a finance company, it’s important to go over all the details of the loan. While many options exist for home loans, fixed rate mortgages allow homeowners the peace of mind to know what their monthly payments will be in the long term. In addition, the interest on these loans will never change.
  4. Homeownership Suits Homeowners’ Preferences – buyers are able to tailor the look of their living and outdoor spaces, as opposed to living on leased terms. In addition, Miami single family homeowners can make strategic updates on properties to increase value in the future.
  5. Homeownership Accumulates Deductions – From deducting points on home loans, to property taxes and mortgage interest, this is recognized by investors as one of the top incentives for securing homeownership.
