Should I Stop Renting and Buy a Home?

Are you tired of renting? Do you think that you are ready to buy your first South Hudson NH home for sale?

Here are a few factors that will help you to decide whether or not to buy your first home or continue renting!

  1. You don’t have debt

  2. If you have a lot of debt you most likely will not be able to get a lender to give you a loan for a mortgage. It is always worth a try, but odds are you won’t be to lucky if you’re over extended. If you are in debt that means you either can’t afford to pay your bills on time, or you just plain forget, which happens to the best of us. If you’re in debt you can’t manage to pull yourself out of, you may need to continue renting until you have the ability to change the situation.

    But don’t give up before you try. There might be a way to get yourself out of a bad situation so that you will be able to buy that dream home in South Hudson you’ve been thinking about for so long. It may not be right away but we can also work with you to figure out a plan of action to make your dream of buying a South Hudson home for sale a reality!

  1. You’re good with money

  2. If you are good at managing your money, you always pay your rent on time, and you still have enough money left over for personal things such as groceries or your car payment, then you may be a great candidate for buying a South Hudson NH home! You will want to be sure you have enough money for a down payment, as well as some extra money for all the renovations your new home may need or that you want.

  3. You have good credit

  4. The sellers won’t want to accept an offer from someone with bad credit, because you won’t be able to get a pre-approval letter from the bank to back you up. So be sure you pay your bills, and any previous loans you’ve gotten in the past if you want to purchase your own South Hudson home for sale.

    If you have good credit you can be trusted to pay a loan back to the bank. Which in plain terms means thy will lend you money for your mortgage! 

  1. You want control of your surroundings

    When you are renting, you can’t renovate things the way you would like to because it’s someone else's property and not your own to make decisions about. If you have had dreams of living in a purple house, then buy a house and paint it purple! It is always nice to be able to personalize things and make them your own. 

  2. If you have always wanted a beautiful fenced in yard with a nice pool in the backyard then you shouldn't be renting. Instead of renting, buy a South Hudson NH home for sale. Currently, rent prices are higher than it would cost to pay a mortgage and you won’t get the benefit of the tax break if you rent either. 

  1. Your family is growing

  2. If you have a growing family, and renting just isn’t working for you because you don’t have enough space, or enough rooms to be the perfect fit for you and your family then maybe it is time to buy your first South Hudson home for sale! A small home or a small apartment isn’t going to help you while your family is growing.
