Why a Winter Home Could Be a Smart Investment...
Escaping the winters to enjoy time in a warm climate is a very popular choice for those who are looking at retirement, those who are already retired, and those working professionals who own their own business or have schedules flexible enough to allow for long vacations (or who work from home). If you aim to be a permanent or long-term "snowbird" (living part time in multiple paces based on climate) then buying a winter home will likely save you money as you could even offset the cost of a mortgage by renting out your property during the spring and summer months. In the long term you will stand to save yourself money on paying rent vs. a mortgage, and by building your own equity.
You can save time on finding a new rental property every year by purchasing real estate. Owning your property means that arrival dates each year won’t be an issue and you don’t have to be making decisions each winter about where you want to live.
An important part of home buying is how you will pay for your new home. We can help by closely working with you to insure you have a smooth transition process. Whether you are purchasing a condo or a multi million dollar estate, Franklin Loan Center is here to help you with any of your home lending needs. To do this, step one is to speak with your personal loan officer, then step two will be your pre-approval letter to see how much home you can afford.
It is important is to speak to a professional who knows the process and will put you on the right path. Many other lenders promise a quick and easy process but leave you scratching your head wondering if you truly got the best deal possible for you and your situation. At Franklin Loan Center, our professional and courteous Loan Officers will help you find the loan program that best fits your needs and finances.
