The Whittaker in Trenton, New Jersey, knows that buying a home is a great way to build wealth and live a more fulfilling life, but you don’t have to take our word for it – just listen to Warren Buffett.

Buffett, who is worth about $80 billion, purchased a home in Laguna Beach, California, in 1971 for $150,000 and recently listed it for a whopping $11 million. During an interview with CNBC, he called a 30-year mortgage the “best instrument in the world.”

“Because if you’re wrong and rates go to 2 percent, which I don’t think they will, you pay it off,” he explained. “It’s a one-way renegotiation. It is an incredibly attractive instrument for the homeowner and you’ve got a one-way bet.”

Unlike many of our competitors, at The Whittaker, we only offer our homeowners a 30-year fixed rate mortgage because we know that when you buy a home, you want it to be a choice you can believe in. With fixed mortgages, your rates won’t go up, which means it’s an even more attractive instrument for homeowners.

Each year, Buffett writes a letter to his shareholders to address the profits from the year before. During one letter to shareholders, Buffett addressed low-interest rates and great prices and said, “Home ownership makes sense for most Americans.”

He expanded on his belief and said that the third-best investment he made was purchasing his home. For those of you who are wondering, the two best investments he made were “wedding rings.”

While Buffett is a firm believer in becoming a homeowner and the value in paying your own mortgage instead of writing a rent check to pay your landlord’s mortgage, he cautioned against over-extending yourself. Fortunately, at The Whittaker in Trenton, New Jersey, you can have your dream home and keep your mortgage payments at a price you can afford.
