OWN VS. RENT

When You Own Your Home, You're in Charge!

Enjoy the pride and security of owning your own home. 

Have the confidence of knowing what you will be paying each month.

When home values rise, you build equity in your home. 

Benefits of Owning Your Home

  1. Count on a consistent monthly home loan payment with a Fixed-Rate Mortgage. 

  2. Pay your own mortgage, not your landlord's.

  3. Build equity when home values rise.

  4. Avoid annual (or more frequent) rent increases. 

  5. Avoid termination of your lease. 

  6. Gain tax advantages of owning a home.

  7. Choose to refinance when rates go down. 

A Fixed-Rate Mortgage has an interest rate that remains the same for the life of the loan.

Owning a home is a solid, long-term investment in your future.
