江西多乐彩软件:Home Buying Guide: Renting vs Owning

One Day My Renting Life Will Be Over. ONE Day Is NOW.

Think you can't afford a new home? Let's take a closer look.

Building Equity

Nearly all of us pay a monthly housing payment. Some pay a landlord, others pay a mortgage company. In both cases that payment is building equity in the place where you live. The question is, whose equity are you building? Equity for you and your family, or for your landlord?

Doesn't it make sense to explore the option of owning your own new home? You may be surprised at the affordability.

Affordability

Many renters think that they just can't afford a new home. And they are pleasantly surprised to find that a house payment is very comparable to their monthly rent, when considering the after tax equivalent. Most of a new house payment is made up of mortgage interest and real estate taxes (up to 90% of the monthly payment is some cases).

Since these are tax deductible, the actual cost of the after tax equivalent mortgage payment is much less than you think. The exact amount is determined by your specific tax situation.

Adj. Gross Income $90,000
Tax Bracket 21%
Monthly Rent $2,000
After Tax Equivalent $2,336
