[:en]There are many benefits to homeownership, one of top ones, is being able to protect yourself from rising rents and lock in your housing cost for the life of your mortgage.

The National Association of Realtors (NAR) just released their findings of a study in which they studied “income growth, housing costs and changes in the share of renter and owner-occupied households over the past five years in metropolitan statistical areas throughout the US.”

Don’t Become Trapped

The study revealed that over the last five years, a typical rent rose 15%, while the income of renters grew by only 11%. If you are currently renting, this disparity in growth could get you caught up in a cycle where increasing rents continue to make it impossible for you to save for a necessary down payment.

The top 5 markets where renters have seen the highest increase in rents since 2009 are:

  • New York, NY (50.7%)
  • Seattle, WA (32.4%)
  • San Jose, CA (25.6%)
  • Denver, CO (24.1%)
  • St. Louis, MO (22.3%)

Homebuyers, who were able to purchase their home over the same five-year period and lock in their housing costs, were able to grow their net worth as home values have increased and their mortgage balances have gone down.

Know Your Options

Perhaps you have already saved enough to buy your first home. HousingWire reported that analysts at Nomura believe:

“It’s not that Millennials and other potential homebuyers aren’t qualified in terms of their credit scores or in how much they have saved for their down payment. 

It’s that they think they’re not qualified or they think that they don’t have a big enough down payment.” (emphasis added)

According to Freddie Mac:

“Depending on their credit history and other factors, many borrowers can expect to make a down payment of about 5 to 10%. And new 3% down financing options for qualified borrowers could mean a down payment as little as $6,000 for a $200,000 home.”

Bottom Line

Don’t get caught in the trap so many renters are currently in. If you are ready and willing to buy a home, find out if you are able. Have a professional help you determine if you are eligible to get a mortgage.[:es]Don’t Get Caught in the ‘Renter’s Trap’ | Keeping Current Matters

Hay muchos beneficios al ser propietario de casa, unos de los principales son el tener la capacidad de protegerse del incremento de los alquileres y asegurar los costos de vivienda por la vida de su hipoteca.

La Asociación Nacional de Realtors (NAR) acaba de publicar los resultados de un estudio en que ellos estudiaron “el aumento de los ingresos, los costos de la vivienda y los cambios en la proporción de inquilinos y hogares habitados por su dueño durante los últimos cinco años en áreas estadísticas metropolitanas en los estados Unidos”.

No se deje atrapar

El estudio reveló que en los últimos cinco años, un alquiler típico subió 15 %, mientras que el ingreso de los inquilinos aumento solamente 11 %. Si usted está alquilando actualmente, esta diferencia en el crecimiento podría atraparlo en un ciclo donde el aumento de los alquileres continuaría haciendo imposible para usted el ahorrar lo necesario para la cuota inicial.

Los cinco mercados principales donde los inquilinos han visto un incremento mayor en los alquileres desde 2009 son:

  • New York, NY (50.7 %)
  • Seattle, WA (32.4 %)
  • San Jose, CA (25.6 %)
  • Denver, CO (24.1 %)
  • St. Louis, MO (22.3 %)

Los compradores de casa, que estuvieron en capacidad de comprar su casa durante el mismo periodo de cinco años y asegurar sus costos de vivienda, pudieron crecer su patrimonio neto con el aumento el valor de la casa y al bajar el balance de la hipoteca.

Conozca sus opciones

Tal vez usted ya ha ahorrado lo suficiente para comprar su primera casa. HousingWire informo que los analistas de Nomura creen que:

“No es que los ‘Millennials’ y otros compradores de casas potenciales no estén calificados en términos de su puntuación de crédito o en cuanto ellos han ahorrado para la cuota inicial.

Es que ellos piensan que no califican o piensan que no tienen suficiente dinero para una cuota inicial.” (Énfasis agregado)

Según Freddie Mac:

“Dependiendo en su historial de crédito y otros factores, muchos prestatarios pueden esperar dar una cuota inicial de 5 a 10 %. Y las nuevas opciones de financiación de la cuota inicial del 3 % para los prestatarios calificados puede significar una cuota inicial de tan poco como $6,000 para una casa de $200,000”.

En conclusión

No caiga en la trampa en la que están tantos inquilinos actualmente. Si usted esa listo y dispuesto a comprar una casa, averigüe si está en capacidad de hacerlo. Que un profesional le ayude a determinar si usted es elegible para obtener una hipoteca.[:]
