A Home is More Than an Address

Home is more than an address
A home is a place to call your own, raise your family, share with your friends and feel safe and secure. It is also one of the largest investments most people have.
Leverage is the ability to control a larger asset with a smaller amount of cash through the use of borrowed funds. It has been described as using other people’s money to increase your yield and it applies to homeowners and investors alike. Positive leverage causes the yield to increase as the loan-to-value increases.
Even a modest amount of appreciation combined with the amortization of a loan can cause a substantial rate of return on the down payment and closing costs.
Homes build equity as the price goes up due to appreciation and the unpaid balance goes down due to amortization.
