Step 1 of 9: BUYING a Home in Alamogordo, NM

Step 1 of 9: BUYING a Home in Alamogordo, NMHave you dreamed of owning your own home, but just not sure where to start? My recommendation is that you commit to buying a home. You need to be prepared as well as committed to buying a home. You need to understand why you want to buy a home, because buying a home is a long term commitment and not something that can be returned once the sale is final. 
 
There are many benefits to owning a home:
  • pride of ownership
  • creating your wealth by investing in your future
  • a fixed house payment
  • a tax deduction (see your accountant or tax professional for details)
  • improve your credit
  • You can make home improvements to increase your home's value
  • You can decorate to your personal taste
  • If something needs repairs, you can have it repaired to your standards
  • Repairs can be done your timeline, not a landlord's
Buying a home is always a good investment, but it is important to buy a home that meets your needs and stays within in your means. Once you have committed to buying a home, you then need a REALTOR® who can guide you through the home buying process.

Great advice Michele! Despite what has happened in the last few years real estate can still be a good way to build up equity and increase wealth in the long run.
