Buying and financing a new home is one of the largest expenses we have in our lives. According to the mortgage finance company Freddie Mac, the 30-year average fixed-rate mortgages rose from 3.59% two weeks ago to 3.62% last week, although they are still at a relative low, considering that last year, the 30-year fixed-rate mortgages reached an average of more than 5%, with its lowest being 3.91% at the end of 2011. Don’t miss out on this truly unique period in history where interest rates are at record lows that you can almost borrow money for free. Yes, free money! If you are currently renting, your mortgage may be the same (or lower) than your monthly rent- so you mine as well start building equity in something you own. Also don’t forget that your mortgage interest and real estate taxes are deductible on your income tax return which always makes good financial sense.
New Homes come with no or low maintenance. After all since new homes are brand new, the worry and headaches that come with older or used homes doesn’t exist and won’t for a long time down the road. New homes utilize the latest and greatest building materials and methods and these newer homes are often easier to maintain and always more energy efficient than homes built 5 years ago. Energy efficiency alone can save you thousands in utility bills.
