Buying a House Can Reduce Your Costs

House hacking has taken off and for good reason. Buying a house and reducing the amount you’re paying for your mortgage by taking on roommates is an attractive option to many first-time buyers. If you’re paying market rent, it’s very likely that you could drastically reduce your housing costs by owning your own home.

Down Payment Assistance Is Available

With rents and student debt both on the rise it’s become increasingly difficult for people to purchase their first home. There’s a common misconception that you need 20% for a down payment when in reality there are programs to help you purchase a house for no money down. FHA loans allow you to purchase a property with 3.5% down and with down payment assistance you can get up to 4% from the state to help you with your purchase.

Stop Wasting Money on Rent

By renting from someone else, you’re effectively paying their mortgage and building their equity. After a year of renting you have nothing to show for your hard-earned money. Take that same money and give it back to yourself by buying your own home, condo, duplex, anything!
