TAX ADVANTAGES TO HOME OWNERSHIP

 

$405,000 Loan Amount X 5.25% amortized over 5 years =  $102,389 in interest = ~$20,478 per year in tax write-off!!!

 

Property Tax write off = $450,000 X 1.25% =  $5,625 per year.

 

Here’s a simple way to calculate the tax savings your monthly mortgage check will yield:

 

1) Start with the interest you will pay monthly (~$20,478/12 = 

    $1,706).

2) Next, add the monthly cost of property tax. ($450,000 

    purchase price X 0.0125 = $5,625/12 = $468)

3) Next, multiply the total by your tax rate (federal and state 

    ~33%)

          ($1,706 + $468 = $2,174 X 33% = $717)

4) The result of $717 is the amount you’re saving each month 

    in taxes.

5) Subtract this from your total monthly payment

    ($2,236 - $717 = $1,519)  This is the real cost of your 

    payment.

 

         

POWER OF EQUITY

 

Once you own a home you start to accumulate EQUITY.

 

EQUITY = $$$

 

You can borrow against this EQUITY and use it for whatever you want!

          ·  Purchase a new car

          ·  Pay for kid’s college

          ·  Pay for remodeling of your house

          ·  Pay for that dream vacation

Best of all, the interest you pay on that borrowed EQUITY is also tax deductible!!!

 

Rent??? - Why???          

                    

Rent:  $1800 per month = $21,600 per year = $108,000 over 5 years

 

·You have not saved anything.

·You have had no tax break.

·You still don’t own anything.

·You can’t borrow against equity because there is none.

 

 

Take a step ahead by investing in your future.  Purchase a home instead of renting and paying your landlord’s mortgage and giving him the tax benefits.  You work hard for your money, now let your money work hard for you!!!
