June is National Homeownership Month, and Edward Andrews Homes is recognizing the ways homeownership can enhance our lives and contribute to the thriving Atlanta community. The benefits of homeownership reach beyond the personal milestones that come with purchasing your own home. Here are a few reasons we’re celebrating:
- Equity – The longer you live in a home, the more equity you can accrue. When you sell your home, you can often make a profit from the equity you have built up or you can borrow against the equity with a home equity loan – enabling you to remodel your kitchen or add on to your master bath.
- Precedence – As a homeowner, you are setting an excellent example for your children. Additionally, new homes are made of state-of-the-art building products, creating a more efficient and safer home for your family.
- Tax breaks – Homeowners receive several tax deductions that may include writing off part of the mortgage interest, real estate taxes or home costs if you work from home. The average homeowner receives a 12 percent tax savings per workmonth by making payments on their own home. That’s more savings you can put toward doing what you and your family love most.
- Personal expression – If you own your home, you have the freedom to express yourself through design choices inside and out. You don’t need permission from a landlord, so have your builder customize your home in a way that suits your own personal style (pending approval from the homeowner’s association, of course.)
Reaping all the benefits Georgia homeowners are afforded, Edward Andrews would love to welcome you to become one of its hundreds of happy homeowners. To view communities, floor plans and design details that match your lifestyle, visit www.eahomes.com/communities.
