Rent Vs. Own

Where to get started?

On the fence about buying a home or continuing to rent? You are not alone! So many renters assume that they can not afford to buy a new home or perhaps just don't even know where to start. We have helped hundreds of first time homebuyers and have the team in place to help you explore your options.

Here are some of the important pros to consider when making the jump into homeownership

  • Fixed monthly payment- after closing on your home you never have to worry about your mortgage payments increasing
  • Equity- every payment towards your principle is a direct savings into the equity you are building for your future along with the home value appreciation over time.
  • Tax benefits- your mortgage interest and property taxes paid are likely tax deductible
  • Flexibility- your home means just that, you can customize and personalize your home however you'd like to make it perfect for you

Upgrades and Your monthly budget

One of the most exciting parts of building a new home with Robertson Homes is your visit to personalize the interior finishes for your home at our state-of-the-art Design Studio. For those buyers just starting out, it can also be an intimidating time wondering what upgrades you can afford. With interest rates continuing to be at all time low those larger ticket items may only end up costing you a few extra dollars a month in your mortgage payment. Here's an overview of what some of the most common upgrades could cost you monthly.*

  • $17 Tile both full bathrooms
  • $12 Add luxury plank flooring to main living areas
  • $12 Level 2 kitchen maple cabinets
  • $10 Recessed lighting package
  • $5 Upgrade appliances to stainless steel

What Our Homebuyers Are Saying

The building supervisor Ron Simon was exceptional and we very much appreciated the help of Tracey in the design center in marking our choices. The salesperson Tiffany was always available and helpful and we loved the get together for new homeowners after we moved in. We love our new home!
