If you're currently renting an apartment or house, it makes good financial sense to consider becoming a homeowner in the foreseeable future. There are pros and cons to owning your own home -- and it's not for everyone -- but for most people, the advantages far outweigh the disadvantages.

An exception would be if your job requires you to relocate frequently. In that scenario, the potential benefits of building up equity in a home would be greatly diminished.

On the other hand, if you plan on staying put for more than a few years, then the tax benefits and investment value of owning real estate could put you on a stronger financial track than if you continued shelling out your hard-earned money to a landlord. You've probably heard the argument before: "If you pay rent, you have nothing to show for it at the end of the year". However, when you buy a home, an increasing portion of your monthly payments is applied to your actual ownership of the property (as opposed to how much you owe the bank).

Tax Advantages of Home Ownership

In most cases, you can deduct all of your home mortgage interest from your federal tax returns, according to the IRS. More specifically: "The only costs you can deduct are real estate taxes actually paid to the taxing authority, interest that qualifies as home mortgage interest, and mortgage insurance premiums."

However, since everyone's financial situation is different and there is no "one size fits all" approach to financial management, it's always best to consult with an experienced CPA, enrolled agent, or knowledgeable tax preparer. There may be other tax benefits you could qualify for as a homeowner, too, including getting tax credits for installing a solar energy system. The government's Energy Star program says tax credits on new solar energy systems are available through the year 2021.

Getting the Process Underway

Two key steps to becoming a home owner are finding out your credit score and meeting with a mortgage lender to determine how much of a real estate loan you could qualify for. An experienced real estate agent can also provide you with a wealth of guidance and information on how to become a homeowner. They can fill you in on many of the exact steps, requirements, and advantages of buying your first home. A buyers' agent can also help you assess your readiness to take the plunge into home ownership.

In addition to finding out your credit score, which will impact your mortgage interest rate and the type of loan you may qualify for, other vital information can be gleaned from a detailed personal budget. Although the amount of rent you now pay will provide some insights into your potential house-buying budget, there are a lot of variables which will impact how much of a mortgage you could comfortably afford.

Let's face it the process of packing up your belongings and moving them to a new home can be exhausting. However, if you prepare plenty of healthy, delicious snacks, you and your moving day team will be better equipped than ever before to conquer any challenges that come your way.

Ultimately, preparing snacks before moving day is essential. Yet determining which snacks to offer sometimes can be difficult, particularly for those who have large groups of family members and friends ready to provide moving day assistance.

Lucky for you, we're here to help you plan ahead so that you can provide your entire moving day team with outstanding snacks.

Now, let's take a look at five tips for preparing moving day snacks.

1. Get a Headcount

You know that family members and friends are happy to help you move, and you should get a headcount to understand just how much food that you'll need to keep your loved ones happy and healthy on moving day.

Remember, when it comes to moving day snacks, it usually is better to err on the side of caution. And if you end up with extra snacks after moving day concludes, you can always give these treats to family members and friends. Or, you can celebrate the completion of a successful move by enjoying your extra snacks on your own.

2. Ask People What Types of Snacks They Like

Learn what types of snacks that your family members and friends like. If you ask these loved ones about their preferred snacks several days or weeks prior to moving day, you'll have plenty of time to get snacks ready that your entire moving day team can enjoy.

3. Identify Any Dietary Restrictions

Ask friends and family members about any dietary restrictions that they may have. By doing so, you can avoid the risk of preparing snacks that certain members of your moving day team won't be able to eat.

4. Don't Forget About Drinks

Providing water and sports drinks on moving day usually is a good idea. Offering various beverages will make it easy for your family members and friends to stay hydrated while they move large, heavy boxes into your new house.

5. Be Ready to Call for Takeout

Even a well-planned morning or afternoon move can stretch late into the evening. As such, if you run out of snacks, you should be ready to call for takeout.

Make a list of takeout restaurants near your new home before moving day you'll be glad you did. With this list, you'll be ready to call for takeout if moving day runs long and you need extra food.

Lastly, if you need additional assistance as you get ready for your move, it often pays to collaborate with a real estate agent. In addition to helping you buy or sell a home, this housing market professional can offer expert moving day tips.

Get snacks ready for moving day use the aforementioned tips, and you should have no trouble providing your moving day team with delectable treats.
