Homeownership can be Risky in Retirement

Joseph Coupal - Friday, August 17, 2018

Abberly Crest, Lexington Park, MDDespite the benefits of homeownership, there's one huge drawback to owning property in retirement, and it's committing yourself to a variable expense while living on a fixed income. Even if your mortgage itself is paid off by the time you enter retirement, you'll still have property taxes to contend with. And those have a tendency to rise over time, even during periods when home values don't follow suit.

There's also maintenance and repairs to think about, and that's where a lot of retirees who own homes get into trouble. The average homeowner spends 1% to 4% of his or her home's value on standard annual upkeep. Now being a retiree doesn't automatically mean you'll own an aging home. But if yours is on the older side, you should plan on hitting the top end of that range, which could really eat into your limited budget.

Furthermore, while that 1% to 4% range applies to regular maintenance, it doesn't include major repairs that could spring up on you without notice. I'm talking about things like your heating system going kaput or a pipe bursting in your basement -- expenses that could really hurt you financially when your income doesn't allow for too many surprises.

And there lies the danger of owning a home in retirement: You just don't know what to expect. And while renting certainly isn't without risk -- you could see your rent go up from year to year or find yourself suddenly on the hunt for a new home when your landlord unexpectedly decides to sell -- when you rent, you lock yourself into a fixed cost for the duration of your lease. Sign a series of long-term, affordable leases, and you eliminate much of the worry that comes with owning.

Ultimately, the decision to own a home during retirement boils down to how much risk you're willing to take on. If you love your home, adore your neighborhood, and don't want to deal with the hassle and uncertainly of renting, then by all means, stay in your home. Just make sure you have a decent chunk of savings -- both emergency and otherwise -- to protect yourself from the various unknowns involved.

Looking for Your First Apartment: Things to Consider

Joseph Coupal - Friday, August 10, 2018

Abberly Crest, Lexington Park, MDYou're at a point where you're starting to look for your first apartment. After all those years of living in a dorm room or your parent’s home and sleeping in a twin-size bed, you're more than ready to move out. There are some things to consider when you're looking for your first apartment. This is where the #adulting comes in.

Wouldn't it be cool if apartment hunting was like an episode of House Hunters? A realtor would bring you to three cute and trendy places around town, and you'd have to tell her your likes and dislikes.

In reality, it's not always like what you see on television. You'll likely tour a lot of apartments and lofts before you sign any contract and call that place home. Throughout the process, you'll discover what you need out of your living situation, and figure out your priorities. Taking these things into consideration will be key, when you're looking for an apartment the first time around.

LOCATION

Location is the primary thing you need to consider, when you're looking for your first apartment. First thing's first: Where do you want to live?

Once you figure that part out, then you can start looking at the some other details: the neighborhood, the nearest grocery store, and recreational things you can do in the area. It may seem tedious, but location is key to making sure you're comfortable in your new home.

LAYOUT

The layout of your apartment is actually more important than you may believe. You want to make sure your space makes sense, and will fit all of your belongings, too. Some complexes have a communal space for laundry, but others will have room for a washer and dryer right in your unit. Maybe your place will be two floors, with a fun spiral staircase, or have a pretty open floor plan. You need to know (and see) these things for yourself!

Before you commit to anything, be sure to take a tour. Check out the closets and room for storage, and the counter space in the kitchen. When in doubt, go with your gut and know where you're willing to compromise.

COST OF RENT

Rent is just part of the real world, and you have to consider your bank account before dropping any deposits. You'll want to find some easy ways to save money where you can, and don't forget the water bill.

ROOMMATES

Paying rent and having your own apartment sometimes requires some roommates. You may find a studio and decide to live alone, or have the funds for your own place. Whatever your situation may be, it's important to take other people into consideration. Sometimes just having this company makes a place feel more like home.

PETS

Unfortunately, not every apartment allows pets. So, take that into consideration when you're apartment hunting, especially if you may want to recruit some furry roommates.

Talk to the landlord about your options. Sometimes you can have small animals. Maybe you have a furry friend who's going to make the move with you. In that case, you really need to find a place that will be comfortable for two. You may need an apartment that is dog-friendly, or spacious enough for your cat to roam freely during the day.

WORK/SCHOOL

You'll be spending most of your time away. But, after a particularly busy day, it would be nice to have an easy commute to your couch. When you're looking for your first apartment, you'll want to take transportation into consideration, and look into parking rates for your car. Is there public transportation nearby? Could you walk or bike on a sunny Monday morning?

FUTURE LANDLORD

Before snagging your first apartment, make sure that you meet your future landlord or management team. You'll work with them when your kitchen sink has a leak, or when the air conditioning quits. Like any relationship or friendship, getting along and being able to solve problems is essential.

You want to make sure that this person has your best interests in mind, and cares about your space, too. Ask them questions about their experience, and maybe talk to other tenants who have been in the building for a bit.

OTHER AMENITIES

Having your own apartment is a dream come true. But, be sure to consider the amenities that come with it before signing any contract. Sometimes, you can find an apartment that's has everything you're looking for, and a pool.

At the end of the day, these sort of things make your living situation even better and could save you some money. After all, if you're using the gym in your building, you don't need a membership at that place downtown.

You May Not Be Ready to Buy a House

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, August 02, 2018

Abberly Crest, Lexington Park, MDBuying a home can be a good investment. It can be a rewarding experience for you and your family.

But the fact is, it isn't right in every situation and it only works if the buyer is financially prepared. As we saw during the housing crisis, buying a house when you aren't ready can lead to disastrous results.

How can you tell if you're ready? The experts at real estate marketplace Trulia suggest asking yourself some questions.

The first has to do with income. Does your household earn enough money to make the monthly payment on a home, pay for insurance, pay the taxes, and cover maintenance and repairs?

When you rent your home, all of those costs are baked into the monthly rent. If the water heater goes bad, that's the landlord's problem, not yours.

It's true that, with low interest rates, a mortgage might be the same, or even less than rent in some markets. But you can't overlook the other costs of owning a home.

Debt-to-income ratio

What about your debt? If you have outstanding student loans and rising credit card balances, you might not be ready to take on a mortgage. In fact, that could be one thing that might disqualify you.

Lenders look at a borrower's debt-to-income ratio. If the ratio is too high, it reduces the amount you can borrow. In most cases, a lender will want your debt to be no more than 36% of gross income.

When looking at your savings, don't just think about how much you need for a down payment. If the down payment takes all your ready cash, you'll have nothing left to cover those expenses that almost always crop up in the first year of home ownership.

Two important factors

Before considering a home purchase, you also need to make sure you will qualify for a mortgage. Two factors could keep that from happening.

First, you need to have been on the job, or employed in the same industry, for at least two years. Lenders want to see that employment consistency before they'll consider funding your home purchase.

Second, you need a reasonably good credit score. While it is true you might qualify for a subprime mortgage with a marginal credit score, there could be some real disadvantages to being lumped into the subprime sector.

Having a better credit score -- 720 or better -- will get you a better interest rate, in most cases. So it might be wise to spend some time trying to raise your credit score before considering a home purchase, and the easiest way to get started on that is to simply pay all of your bills on time.

Finally, give some thought to the future. If you purchase a home, you'll need to live in it for a while before you can sell it without losing money. The experts at Trulia suggest three to five years is the minimum length of time you'll need to live in it before selling.

If you think there's a good chance you'll be relocating in a couple of years, the prudent thing to do is keep renting.

Buying a Home Could Be a Bad Move for Your Career

Joseph Coupal - Friday, July 20, 2018

Abberly Crest, Lexington Park, MDAmerican dream or ball and chain? We’ve heard so many times that homes are the ultimate investment, but your job advancement and long-term salary potential could be hindered if you’re tied down.

Most of the time, the buy-vs.-rent debate revolves around which is the best financial decision. That’s for good reason: As you’ve undoubtedly heard more than once, buying a home is the biggest purchase you’ll probably ever make. Most people need to borrow hundreds of thousands of dollars to make it happen.

It’s not a decision to make lightly, and the numbers involved are something you need to take seriously — especially when the adage that buying is always better than renting is a myth, not fact.

In some cases, you shouldn’t buy a home because it’s not the financially sound choice. Taking on a large amount of debt for the long term after shelling out that much cash up front could put you in a precarious financial position.

But let’s just say the numbers do check out for you, and you want to buy a home. In that case, you still need to consider one other factor that might make buying a bad choice: your career.

The Finances Check Out, But That Still Doesn’t Mean You Should Buy

At worst, buying a home could sabotage your career opportunities. Even in a less-dramatic situation, your house could seriously limit how much you could advance in your career — and affect how much money you can make.

Owning a home reduces your flexibility to pursue jobs and opportunities that may make it easier for you to build serious wealth over your lifetime.

For many people, committing to living in a single location for years could seriously interfere with their ability to grow their career, expand their business, and earn more money.

It’s Difficult to Move to Follow Career Opportunities

It’s hard enough to move from one place to another when you rent. But moving as a renter is considerably easier than moving as an owner, because you can’t just up and leave any time you want when you own your home. As a renter, you always have the ability to break your lease if you need to.

But as a homeowner, you can’t just call up the bank or anyone else and ask them to take the house off your hands.

If you’re trying to move to chase down a career opportunity, you need the ability to be fast and flexible. Depending on what the real estate market looks like at the time you want to move, that may not be possible.

You Might Not Be Able to Afford to Move

If you bought within the last three years, you sunk a lot of cash into your home. In an average market, it’s unlikely that home prices will have risen to a point where you could break even, let alone make a profit. Unless you’re willing to lose money on the house you might have bought as an “investment,” you might be in a position where you can’t afford to move.

A Lack of Career Flexibility Could Lead to a Lack of Wealth

The inability to move to explore a new position, role or career opportunity could limit your ability to earn a higher income. Taking new jobs or calculated career risks are both great ways to potentially earn more money than to sit at your existing job and cross your fingers hoping for a raise.

When you earn more money, you get to choose how much to save for the future, which puts the power in your hands rather than at the whim of the real estate (or stock) market.

Buying a Home Limits Your Flexibility

Of course, all of this is just something else to think about when you’re making a decision on whether or not to buy. You may not need much career flexibility at all, and that’s fine. But failing to account for this could turn into a big financial mistake.

You do need to understand how buying a home can limit your career flexibility. It can limit your ability to chase down an opportunity if it arose unexpectedly. It also limits your financial flexibility and liquidity over the short term, because it requires you to put a good chunk of your liquid cash into an illiquid asset.

“Less flexibility” is a trade-off you make when you buy a home. Whether that’s acceptable or not is up to you — but the bottom line is that you must think about this factor if you want to make a fully informed, responsible decision around buying real estate.
