Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association Get Home Atlanta! CampaignThrough the collaboration of the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association, numerous new home builders and allied organizations, the Get Home Atlanta! campaign is informing consumers on the facts about why now is a great time to buy a home in Atlanta.

One of the top ten reasons why now is a great time to buy is that homeownership is the first step to building wealth. Owning a home can help you build wealth in two ways. First, you build equity by paying down your mortgage. As time passes, you will watch your loan amount diminish. Before you know it, the $300,000 loan is down to $50,000 and you’ve gained $250,000 in wealth. Appreciation is another wealth building advantage to homeownership. Each year, the value of your home will change based on market prices. Real estate generally increases in value over time, and according to the latest reports Atlanta has seen an increase this past year despite all the rumors otherwise. Why not build wealth through owning your own home instead of throwing it out the window toward rent?!
