Homeownership Benefits


Owning a home is an exciting investment and comes with many benefits including:

  • Building the equity in your home
  • Tax deductions such as mortgage interest, property taxes and even closing costs
  • Peace of mind knowing you can predict your monthly mortgage payments versus being subject to annual rent increases you can’t necessarily always plan.

More About Becoming a Homeowner

To learn more about becoming a first time home owner and how Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation in Grand Junction can help you in buying your dream home, please see the frequently asked questions below.


A mortgage is a loan associated with real estate, where the property being purchased acts as the collateral for the loan. This means that the property is the security for the loan, so that if the borrower fails to make the payments, the lender can acquire and sell the property to regain the money lent. This use of the property as collateral is a big part of what keeps mortgage rates lower than that of a credit card, for example.

It seems strange to imagine that you need special characteristics to be a good homeowner, but there are some important things to keep in mind when taking the plunge into owning. These characteristics are:

  1. You understand the market
  2. You have some savings
  3. You are prepared for home maintenance
  4. Your last two years of employment have been stable
  5. You plan to stay in the area

Overall, home ownership is still a great financial and emotional investment, but you want to make sure you have the basic characteristics of a successful homeowner!
