A lot of millennials are nowadays are not so keen on buying a home just yet. Major factors include changes in lifestyle and tighter credit standards. Compared to other age groups, acquiring a loan maybe harder for millennials since most of them just came out of college and are still paying their students loans, making it harder for them to acquire a mortgage and making housing prices less affordable. Many millennials prefer to live in the city center hoping to find a better opportunity for their career. Since city centers relatively have higher prices for houses, many would prefer to just rent than buy. Some might even consider living in their parents’ home.
But why is it important to start early in Real Estate? What are the benefits of buying now than later in your life?
Aside from the obvious that buying a house is a sure investment, starting off early means more time for you to pay off the mortgage. Appreciation will get you a better value for your money in the long run. It’s better to pay off your own mortgage than to pay someone else’s.
