Although the housing market has certainly seen better days, the dream of homeownership is far from lost. Keystone Homes has new homes for sale in Augusta, Ga., and Aiken , S.C., that are perfect for first-time or move-up buyers. Before you downplay the importance of owning a home, consider this: A recent survey by the National Association of Home Builders found that three-quarters of respondents still feel owning a home is the best long-term investment they can make.
One reason to buy is the tax benefits. Renters can’t deduct property taxes and interest costs. Owning your home can also help you build equity, especially when you own a home for an extended period of time.
Another reason to buy instead of rent is freedom. You don’t have to wait around for a landlord to maintain the property or deal with an emergency. Instead, you have complete control over the situation and can handle it accordingly. Of course, you’re not just in charge of the tedious stuff. You’re also free to change the décor and landscaping as you see fit.
Aside from the reasons mentioned above, home ownership brings stability, security and a sense of community. When you’re raising a family, these things become more important than ever.
So when you start your search for that perfect new home, consider buying from Keystone Homes.
