10 Good Reasons to Buy a Home in Flagstaff!

Ten Great Reasons To Buy A Home In Flagstaff


Buying a Flagstaff home

  1. Quality of life – a home provides stability and security for you and your loved ones, and membership within a community of neighbors.

  1. Pride of home ownership – a home is a personal haven, a place that you can decorate, shape, and share over time because it’s yours.

  1. Excellent affordability – lower home prices combined with low interest rates means there are tremendous opportunities for buyers.

  1. Historically low interest rates – lower than 5 percent in the U.S. gives better purchasing power to those who qualify.

  1. Appreciation potential - your home investment can grow in value.

  1. Equity buildup and debt pay down – homeowners enjoy an average net worth of approximately $184,000 vs. $4,000 for renters.

  1. Leverage – where else can you buy an investment of this magnitude with 3.5 – 10 percent down?

  1. Tax deduction advantages - property tax and mortgage interest write-offs.

  1. Tax exemption – up to $500,000 per married couple or $250,000 per person on sale of a primary residence in the United States.

  1. The real cost of renting – at $800 per month, with the average 6 percent rental increase per year, you will pay $126,536 over a 10-year period but have zero ownership of the property.

We've never seen as good of a time to buy as right now, with low interest rates, high inventory (number of homes on the market) and seller motivation/competition, if you're on the fence, it may be closer to your reach than you think! I would love the opportunity to sit down with you and plan out your home buying strategy!
