It’s always an amazing idea to buy a home.

FIRST STEP TO CREATING WEALTH

I’ve been building homes in the Treasure Valley for 30 years and I’ve learned a lot in that time. Through the crashes, the booms, and everything in between, there’s one thing that always stands out for me. It’s always an amazing idea to buy a home.

Owning a home is the first step to creating wealth. A home gives you more than just a place to live.

You’re gaining security.

You’re gaining an easy monthly savings button.

You’re gaining home appreciation.

You’re building your wealth every month.

Let’s break this down.

Homeownership is the largest source of wealth among families. Whether you’re in your home for 5, 10, or 30 years, the home is gaining equity. Equity is how much your home is worth versus how much you owe on your mortgage.  Not only are you paying down the mortgage each month, but your home is gaining value. While prices can fluctuate up and down, over a 10 year period on average home values rise 3.5 to 3.8% every year.

In a National Association of REALTORS blog, they estimated that single-family homeowners typically accumulated $225,000 in housing wealth over 10 years. Let’s repeat that and let it soak in. Single-family homeowners typically accumulated $225,000 in housing wealth over 10 years. 

Buying my first home started me on my wealth journey and I truly believe that owning a home is the first step to creating wealth.
