Homeownership brings many benefits. When you buy your first home, you’ll become part of a community and experience the security of owning the roof over your head.
As a homeowner, you may also be able to:
- Take control. Avoid rent increases and cancelled leases while creating a home that meets your needs and tastes.
- Build home equity. Grow your assets with the principal portion of your mortgage payments as your property value potentially increases.
- Get tax benefits. Deduct mortgage interest* and real estate property taxes on your income tax returns.
- Build your credit. Create a strong credit history by making on-time mortgage payments.
