Should I Buy or Rent a Home in South Jordan

From the sense of security to the lasting financial advantages, there are many upsides to purchasing and owning your very own home at Daybreak in South Jordan, Utah. While this decision takes a lot of thought and planning, your knowledgeable and trusted team at Sego Homes is here to guide you along your exciting journey!


New Homes in South Jordan

With a new home in a safe, secure community, built with uniquely-designed floor plans, first-rate construction, and superior materials, the advantages of owning vs. renting have never been more clear. With us, you’ll enjoy impeccable quality and comfort in a community that loves you and your family back.


If you have enough for a down payment, you can own. If you can own, you can buy new. Here are a few reasons to consider buying a new home in South Jordan instead of renting or buying used:


Benefits of Buying a New Home

  1. A better home. In today’s market, it’s more difficult than ever to find a quality rental in a great area. One of our well-designed homes, on the other hand, provides the space, design, and energy efficiency that you want, in a South Jordan neighborhood with great amenities you love. Plus, it will appreciate over time, in any economy. 


  1. New is all you. In a used home, whether you’re renting or buying, you’re stuck with someone else’s choices. But as the owner of a brand new Sego home, you have “creative control” over the look and feel of your living space. From paint and cabinets to flooring and carpet, you’ll have plenty of choices to add your personal touch – and enjoy pride of ownership. 


  1. No landlord. When you rent, your monthly payments only benefit your landlord, whereas mortgage payments made by you build equity (and a better credit score) for you. Not to mention, you’re always at the mercy of your landlord when you rent, while owning puts far more power and independence into your hands.


  1. Financial predictability. Simply put, renting is unstable. Rates can (and will) increase, oftentimes based on the whims of your landlord… which is not the kind of surprise you typically enjoy. With a fixed-rate mortgage, your payments are fixed for the life of the loan, which is far more manageable than rental market fluctuations. Learn more about financing options.


  1. Tax benefits and savings. When you own your home, part of your mortgage payment goes toward the principal repayment, helping you to build equity. Best of all, you’ll continue to enjoy tax deductions on interest payments and property taxes.
