Posted By David Whitton @ Jun 21st 2011 12:32pm In: Buying and Investing in Salem Real Estate

Many renters are finding that they get more ‘bang for their' buck if they buy a home rather than rent one. With affordable prices, low interest rates and tax incentives, Salem OR home ownership makes more sense than ever.

house6 Reasons to Buy Rather Than Rent a Salem OR Home

1. Buying doesn't always cost more.
The Associated Press reports the gap between buying and renting has decreased $550 in the last three years.

2. Affordability is at an all-time high.
Nationwide, prices have declined by nearly 20-40%.

3. Tax benefits for home ownership saves money.
The biggest tax break is the mortgage interest deduction. Most of your mortgage payment goes to interest which is tax deductible. Property taxes and mortgage insurance are also tax deductible.

4. Many loans require no down payment.
Veterans Administration (VA) loans and many first-time home owner loans don't require a down payment.

5. Mortgage rates are at all-time lows.
Mortgage interest rates are the lowest we have seen in 30 years.

6. You own it.
There is nothing like pride of ownership...and you can do anything you want to do. You can paint it any color you want, make improvements, and landscape to your own taste.
