The Benefits Of Owning Your Own Home


Perhaps the most straightforward benefit of owning your first home will be the chance to customize it to fit your own unique style. The dream home you always imagined will soon become a reality with your newly found freedom to renovate, design, and decorate till your heart’s content.

Opportunity to Build Equity

There’s no better way to start building your credit than becoming a homeowner. As you continuously make on-time mortgage payments every month, the equity in your home will increase thus enabling you to use it towards student loan payments, home renovations, and other smart investments.

Tax Advantages

As a homeowner, both mortgage interest and property taxes may be deductible from your annual income tax.**

In the early '70s, the credit union extended to me – a single woman under 30 – a mortgage that allowed me to buy a rundown house in the City of Decatur. That house is long paid for and worth a lot more in this rejuvenated town. Back in those days, no other financial institution would consider helping. I will always be grateful!

I just wanted to let you know that I’m in awe of Georgia United! I spoke to you ten days ago about applying for a HELOC and today we closed on it at the Stockbridge branch. This was the EASIEST and best thing I could have ever done! Every Georgia United employee we dealt with along the way, was very helpful, prompt, kind and a joy to deal with.

Every interaction I had with associates has been very positive for years!!! Never been disappointed. My recent home loan closing experience was perfect. The seller commented on how professional and on point the loan staff were.
