Home Ownership

Owning a home means a bit different things to some folks. Surly it is the heart of the family, no matter how small or large or who you call family. A place to make memories. A place to rest, play and just come home to. Your family will be sheltered safely from the elements. There will be clean air and space outside for all sorts a fun, private activities. Both friends and family will share a meal at the dinner table. Your kids, their kids, will rumble through the grass, giggling the whole time, “tag your it”. The fur babies will be busy chasing their tails under a shade tree. There is something magic about: ‘Pride In Ownership’ 

Then there is the practical side of owning a home: For others renting, their fee will surpass, exceed your mortgage payment down the road.

Depending on your income, come April / IRS tax time, you are able to write off somewhere in the neighborhood of $1,500 – $2,500 each year, …just because you are a ‘homeowner’+. Check with your accountant.

That 30 year mortgage: Pay a little extra on it each month ($50 here & $100+ there), and you can pay your mortgage off in 20 years or so. This my friend, will save you literally thousands of bucks on interest! Then you will be living mortgage free. 🙂 The lender may not bother to tell you this.

Owned property builds equity, (profit). Makes good for a retirement fund for those so-called “Golden Years”.


I will provide you with the prices of comparable properties that have recently sold in your area = CMA, a “Certified Market Analysis” at no charge. Fair pricing is everything.


There is no such thing as a ‘Perfect Home’! There are, such things as the ‘best home for your needs’. Come into the deal already Lender ‘APPROVED’ for a loan or pay all cash. It is called, “Purchase Power”!
