Lee is a typical home buyer. Driving around a housing development one Sunday afternoon, Lee sees a newly-
constructed home selling price of $165,000. After surrendering $16,500 of hard earned savings, Lee closes the sale and
becomes the proud owner of a 30- year fixed- rate mortgage of 4.0%. Having borrowed a total of $148,500.00( to cover the purchase
plus closing costs) and making a very long term commitment, Lee look forward to 360 monthly payments of $708.96 each. Over
the thirty-year mortgage term, Lee will pay a total of $255,225.60 in interest and principal. And, in thirty years, Lee will
become full owner of his home and can invite all his friends to his mortgage- burning ceremony.
is less traditional. Weeks of reading ads and driving through new developments have this shopper convinced that she wants
to become more active in her new home purchase. Armed with her CUSTOM HOMES BUILT BY YOU package, finding supplemental references
in our “Suggested Reading” section and doing a bit of additional research, Jan finds the right Contractors and
builds a first home that has a fair market appraisal of $165,000 ( the same as Lee’s). Keeping a constant eye on quality
and cost control issues over the few months of planning and construction, Jan realizes the total cost of her home is $132,000
an impressive (but reasonable) $33,000 savings for a diligent owner builder.
Jan was able to
save by being more involved in her building project and doing some very aggressive contractor, material and fixture shopping.
Jan made the same $16,500 down payment as Lee, as a 30- year mortgage principal of $115,500, $49,500 less
than Lee’s new home of like quality.
Compared to Lee’s monthly payments of $708.96, Jan
has monthly mortgage payments of $551.41. The total paid on Jan’s 30- year mortgage will be $198,507.60, nearly $57,000
less than Lee’s!
For most home owners that $57,000 could be better spent for investments,
collage for kids, retirement security, vacations, or other worthwhile dreams.
But we are not
done yet! Jan realizes the life changing benefits of using our CUSTOM HOMES BUILT BY YOU system of new home ownership and
is motivated to achieve even greater financial freedom. She has discovered that the degree of organization and control she
achieved through using her CUSTOM HOMES BUILT BY YOU package made the process of owning her first home far more comfortable
than she ever imagined. After keeping this first home for two years, Jan can sell it and use the profit (currently with no
IRS tax penalties) as a down payment no a “nicer” home. Assuming an annual home appreciation of 5 - 6%, Jan’s
home will now have a fair market value of $185,000. In the two years of ownership Jan will have paid the principal down by
about $4,800. That means the sale of this home, after sales commissions and other costs, will give Jan a lump sum of about
$68,000 for the next down payment.
If you do this 3 times and your 3rd house will be paid for completly "No
More Home Loans".
This wealth building
process requires three or more homes. Current IRS laws require owning and living in each home for two years to avoid capital
gains taxes. Jan can now be mortgage free in five years, and live in a custom designed dream home.
Jan and Lee, which form of financial security would you choose?
