The American Dream Can Come True, with Help from APFCU

HOMES-011115-4Resolve to reap the benefits of home ownership

It’s a new year, a time of renewal and resolutions.

Do you resolve to make the American Dream come true for you, to own your own home? Despite rising real estate prices in Honolulu, the dream is still within reach, because interest rates are also still at historic lows.

And that dream is enhanced by the benefits of owning your home:

• Repairs and upgrades are totally up to you. There’s no need for a landlord’s approval, so you may paint the walls and decorate as you wish.

• There are possible tax deductions, generally based on the annual amount of interest paid on a mortgage, some closing costs on the loan, and real estate property taxes. Be sure to consult your tax expert.

• It can be a safe haven from rising housing costs. For example, as rental costs go up, your monthly mortgage payment would remain the same if you have a fixed-rate loan.

• It can be a great investment. The equity you build in your home over time can be a money-saving financial tool: For example, you can borrow against the equity through a Home Equity Line of Credit that’s generally at a much lower interest rate than credit cards.

• On an emotional level, your home is your nest, in a community where you have chosen to perhaps build a family, connect with neighbors and enjoy pride of ownership.
