Getting a Tax Return? If you are looking to invest in your future, look into real estate! While most people dread tax time, if you are getting a refund, this time of year can seem almost as rewarding as end-of-the-year bonus season.
Whether you are receiving a refund of a few hundred dollars or several thousand dollars, if you’re contemplating buying your first home, you may want to deposit your refund into an account dedicated to your down payment fund. Using your tax refund as a portion of your down payment is a great idea. The more you put into the down payment, the less you have to borrow. First-time buyers will realize an even bigger tax refund in the next year because they’ll have a new write-off in the interest paid on their mortgage. Add this to the prospect of equity gained through homeownership and it’s a win-win.
