Home Ownership Tax Benefits
One of the biggest advantages of owning a home is that the interest on your mortgage is 100% tax deductible. Loan fees and points paid to discount your interest rate are also deductible.
Furthermore, you can deduct up to $100,000 in debt from a Home Equity Line of Credit.
The example below demonstrates how mortgage tax deductible benefits can make home ownership more affordable than renting – even with no money down.
