Earlier this week, I wrote a blog about Triggers called Why Does a First Time Home Owner Buy a House. I've had many comments about this blog and I just wanted to touch on a few points.
I want to make sure people understand what a "Trigger" is. A trigger is something that helps create an action. A trigger is not necessarily a benefit of doing something.
For example, a few people commented to me about the $8000 First Time Home Buyer Credit and also mentioned about the tax breaks. Those are benefits of buying a home, but those aren't triggers to buying a home.
Another example of a trigger is being tired of hearing your neighbor through your walls and the date they brought home last week was the last straw.
A trigger could be all your home owner friends that keep talking about refinancing and how low of a rate they got and their payments are "only" "this" amount, and it finally dawns on you that owning could be more cost effective than renting.
I hope that explains "triggers" a little better. Yes, we all love the benfits of home ownership, but most of those benefits aren't realized until after you've bought and moved into the home.
