Have you been thinking about buying a Bend Oregon home but aren’t sure if you’re ready to take the step yet from being a renter to becoming a homeowner?

In today’s post I will cover 5 signs which will prove that you’re finally ready to move from renter to homeowner.

You Want More Control of Your Home and Surroundings

As a renter you can only do so much to your home, condo or town home without facing the disapproval and rejection of your landlord or property management company right?

If you’ve been renting for a long time and want the freedom to paint the walls of your home the color you choose, remodel the bathroom or hang pictures at 1:00 am in the morning then it’s time to buy a home because, your desire to have more control over your environment will only get stronger as time goes by.

There Aren’t Any Rentals in Your Child’s School District

Let’s say you’ve just moved to the area and realized you can’t find any rentals in your child’s school district.

If this is the case it’s time to buy a home instead of moving especially if you’ve fallen in love with the area and can’t see yourself moving out of town just so your kids can go to school here.

Your Family Has Grown – Congratulations!

One common reason why people move from renting to home ownership is because their family has grown and they can no longer live comfortably in their rental.

Instead of renting a bigger home it’s time to consider buying a Bend Oregon Home because, when you buy a home in Bend you will have the freedom and flexibility to create more space by adding on or knocking down walls to change the floor plan of the home.

You Found an Awesome Deal

A sure fire sign it’s time to buy a home in Bend is when you find the right home at an excellent price which would fit within your budget.

When you can’t get that home out of your mind and keep thinking “what it” then it’s time to buy because, there will be other homes in the future which will trigger thoughts of home ownership and you’re not going to find a better time than right now to buy a home in Bend.

You’ve Saved Money for a Down Payment

Last of all, but most important, you will know it’s time to buy a Bend Oregon Home when you’ve saved money for a down payment and can move forward with buying a home now.

Now is the right time to buy a home in Bend because, mortgage interest rates are still low and home values are only comparable to 2004 levels so you may not find a better time to purchase a home here than right now.

This “golden opportunity” may not come again because home values and mortgage interest rates will only rise over the next 12 months as the economy continues to improve.
