We have highlighted 7 top reasons you should buy a home during this COVID-19 pandemic below:
Pride of ownership is a key reason for wanting your own home. Decorate it to your own taste and enjoy all of the benefits while making a great investment.
Real estate over time has been considered a good investment because of how much it has appreciated. The effects of leverage can multiply the increase when borrowed funds are used to purchase the home. Many times, the largest investment a person owns is their home, which has also been a good hedge against inflation. Homeowners build equity. They can borrow against that equity for a variety of reasons that could include college, medical, or to start a business.
Qualified mortgage interest and home equity loans are deductible for Income Tax purposes.
Property taxes on a first or second home are deductible for Income Tax purposes.
A homeowner can exclude up to $500,000 of capital gain if married. Filing jointly or up to $250,000 if single or filing separately for homes that have been the taxpayer’s principal residence for the previous two years.
There is no age requirement for taking the capital gains exclusion like the “over 55” rule in the past. It is not necessary to purchase a replacement home more expensive than the one sold. Homeowners can buy a more or less expensive home with no tax consequences. Their gain is less than the allowable amounts.
Capital assets made preferential tax treatment on gains. IRS permitted more than one year. This is especially important for homeowners with gains over the allowable exclusion.
Mortgage payments include the interest for the time that the money has been used and the principal to retire the debt over a period of time. Each month, part of the payment is for principal accumulation.
