Purchasing a home is a significant and rewarding decision. If you’re unsure about whether or not to buy a home, consider these reasons:

  • A home is a long-lasting investment. Besides providing you and your family with the basic need of shelter, by paying off your mortgage, you build up equity in your home that can be used to make large purchases or serve as a legacy for your family.

  • Owning a home can be cheaper than renting. Choosing to purchase a home can save you tens of thousands of dollars in the long term compared to renting. As rental prices increase, you could be missing out on the value of a home you’ve purchased increasing, as well. Use our calculator to help determine whether you should rent or buy a home.

  • You can create the living space you want. At rental dwellings, renters are often limited to how they can customize their space, whether they’re restricted from painting the walls or will never be able to upgrade their patio or add a pool. Homeowners can add the unique touches they crave, which may also increase the value of their homes when they’re ready to sell.

Home loans from Columbia Bank are not one-size-fits-all. You don’t need to necessarily pay 20 percent or more on a down payment to secure a loan. You may even qualify for special mortgage benefits, such as if you’re a veteran of the armed services. The first step to becoming a happy homeowner is to talk with us. A chat with one of our friendly Columbia Bank representatives to learn your options is completely free.
