Buying Your Hudson Valley Home

Buying a Home

Buying a home is probably the biggest investment you will make, with long-term financial ramifications. It calls for many informed decisions and for good advice from a real estate professional. When buying a home, you can benefit from the knowledge and skill of a seasoned Real Estate professional.

If you are considering buying a home?

The key to finding your perfect home is to spend some time thinking about what you and your family need and desire to compliment your lifestyle.

  • Explore communities, comparing and contrasting the different conveniences, services and amenities they offer.
  • Then think about and prioritize your “wish list.” Consider style preferences, desirable features and ideal locale.
  • Your next step should be to contact a mortgage professional who can help you determine the amount of house you qualify for and monthly expenses associated with your purchase.
  • Spend time online previewing homes in your price range and in the areas you’ve selected.
  • Contact Debbie Allan at 845.705.5441 to discuss your housing needs and get start on your home search.

One thing you should seriously think about – Why continue to pay rent each month, year after year? This money that you layout each year to a landlord is allowing them to build equity in their own real estate investment and not allowing you to build anything! 

The cost of rents will always go up and up. If you are paying a mortgage payment, with a fixed interest rate, the cost of your monthly housing expense (principal & interest) will stay the same AND you will be paying yourself (building equity).

Another point to consider is the Tax Benefits - you will be able to write off both the interest that you’ve paid each month and the property & school taxes.

There are many other great reasons to own a home!
