People buy a home for a lot of different reasons. They
may want to put down roots in a community and create a sense of stability in
their lives. Then there are the financial considerations and the
"forced" savings that builds up in the form of equity. In addition,
the monthly cost of owning a house is usually much more stable and predictable
If you are considering the possibility of purchasing a home, contact a
knowledgeable Realtor in your community. An important part of our job is to
educate prospective buyers about the potential benefits and responsibilities of
renting versus owning a home. We can help you determine your purchasing power
and show you the best homes in your price range. We can also give you a
side-by-side comparison of owning a home compared with what you pay for rent.
When you fix up your home to suit your needs and taste, you benefit from the
added value of the improvements instead of the landlord!
