Rent relief: The homeownership cure

November 20, 2019

The beginning of the month never seems far away, particularly when it’s bill-paying time—like the monthly rent check. Instead of paying for the privilege of living in someone else’s home, why not put that money toward one of your own? This fall, give yourself rent relief. Sage Homes Northwest has the homeownership cure with brand new Seattle townhomes that offer the luxury you want without the price that shoves you out of your comfort zone.

Renting is only a profitable situation for the landlord. They make money every month on your decision to postpone homebuying. Their home equity increases, thanks to your generosity. Meanwhile, you pay month after month, without the benefits of tax deductions and return on investment.

The Seattle housing market is perhaps the most robust in the country. Year after year, the population grows, keeping the Emerald City among the fastest growing cities in the U.S. The eclectic offerings somehow blend together and provide the right fit for a wide range of people. And the high walkability score makes it easy to navigate the city and get where you want. 

There’s no question that Seattle’s allure is  well deserved. But the price that comes with owning a home in Seattle can cause some prospective buyers to put that plan on the back burner. Which is a shame, because interest rates continue to provide a great reason to buy now. Have you looked lately? You can get 3.5% rate on a 30-year fixed rate mortgage*. Ask any current homeowner and they’ll tell you what a great deal this is.

So, the Seattle lifestyle is undeniably tempting. The low interest rate nudges you a little closer to abandoning the renter lifestyle. The next obstacle could be the down payment.

Well…it could be. 

There are so many mortgage programs out there that you owe it to yourself to do some exploration before deciding you’re not ready to buy a home. Did you know you can buy a home with as little as 5% down? AND if you work with our preferred lender, you can still take advantage of the low interest rate.

We have beautiful, brand new townhomes in great locations around Seattle and beyond—with prices as low as $679,950 for more than 1,200 square feet at our brand new Phinney Ridge community. Head to 7622-7626 6th Avenue NW where Sage Homes Northwest has 3 new construction townhomes that will be ready in December. Imagine celebrating New Year’s Eve in your new home. Watch the fireworks from your fully finished rooftop deck!
