Why Rent When You Could Buy Your Very Own Santa Cruz Condo?

Posted by Lauren Spencer on Sunday, June 14th, 2009 at 11:17am.

If you're tired of renting but don't want a huge home to manage, consider purchasing a Santa Cruz condo. You can enjoy the benefits of home ownership and leave your renting days behind you.

By owning a condo, you can:

Build equity

When you make payments on a condo you own, you are constantly building equity in the property. With renting, you pay for years and own nothing.

Avoid payment increases

Unlike renting, when you own your Santa Cruz condo and have a fixed mortgage rate, you can feel confident that your monthly payments will remain the same. No more surprise rent hikes. You can just sit back, relax and plan your finances around that peace of mind.

Make upgrades

As a renter, you probably never had the pleasure of painting the walls any color that suited your style. Your only choices were white and builder beige. As a condo owner, you have the freedom to do what you want to the interior of your home without worrying about penalties from the landlord.

Break away from landlords

Now's your chance to escape the watchful eye of your landlord and start living life the way you please. As a property owner, you call the shots. And best of all, you don't have to be concerned with your landlord selling the property and leaving you without a place to live. Now you can secure your future as condo owner.

There is an array of benefits to owning a Santa Cruz condo. All you have to do is get out of the renter's mindset and step out on your own. You'd be surprised how great you'll feel once you do.
