Chatham-Kent is the affordable community with many amenities, attractions and events taking place, making this the ideal location to live, raise a family ,retire to, relocate or purchase a vacation property.
Are you trying to decide if now is the time to jump into the Market.
Whatever the case, NOW IS THE TIME! Today, according to some of the experts after studying 16 markets, they are saying that Canadian Real Estate is a better investment than the stock market.
But what does that mean to you personally. There are 4 very good reasons to buy a home and some of them just make good sense but today more than ever with the economic climate, this is the time to jump into the market.
Let us examine them briefly and you make up your mind.
1) The first good reason is the Equity you will build with personal home ownership. According to the report about the Canadian Housing market, the price of Canadian Homes has doubles since the year 2000. If you have been renting, you have missed that increase in the value of your money.
2) Relationships is something that is often overlooked and not even thought about when purchasing your first home. However, ask about this benefit of home ownership a year later and the first time home buyer will expound on how great it is to belong to a friendly neighborhood, have met a golf buddy, have other children for theirs to play with and attend barbeques or street parties with the neighbors. We are a social society and this very real benefit is something we should not forget. It can come about with renters but on the whole unfortunately these people move on and lasting relationship are formed where they finally put down their roots, their home!
3) Predictability and Stability No more worries about the rent going up or the landlord changing and with that, all the rules. Mortgage rates are good today and with the help of a knowledgeable Real Estate Agent and a Good Mortgage Consultant you can fit your dream home into your budget.
4) Ownership. There is a great deal to be said for personal ownership. If you are renting, there are restriction on what you can and cannot do to the property. You can probably put up that new deck but when you leave it is not yours but the landlords. You can improve the landscaping and renovate or add that pool you have always dreamed about but when you move, the landlord benefits. Not good use of your money! However, if it is your own home most improvements will only add value to the price of your home.
