You can deduct the cost of mortgage loan interest from your federal and state income taxes, as well as the property taxes you pay as a home owner. The value of your home will appreciate over time. And nothing beats the joy of having a place to call your own.
Should I use a Realtor?
Absolutely! The detailed process of buying a home, qualifying for a mortgage and signing the papers at closing can be overwhelming for even experienced buyers. A Realtor can help you find a home to meet your needs and price range; negotiate the best price; guide you through the paperwork; and serve as a trusted advisor during the home-buying process – and beyond.
