Every family has a list of important dates. We celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, pet adoptions…and the list goes on. For 64.4 percent of households in the United States, this list includes the day they became a homeowner for the first time!
Why is this date important? Homeownership is not just a roof over your head! It represents shelter, stability, wealth, and pride! For decades, homeownership has been an important part of the American Dream!
However, many question if the next generations see the same benefits of homeownership as their predecessors.
Buying a home is an investment in your future!
Appreciation: On average, home prices are appreciating annually at a rate of 3.6%. This helps to create a safety net.
Forced Savings: Your mortgage is like a forced savings plan! With each payment, you are reducing the principal of your loan.
Home Equity: Homeownership builds equity every single month. You can later use that equity to start a business, send your children to college, etc.
Net Worth: A homeowners’ net worth is times greater than renters! This gives you the financial freedom to invest.
Stability: Rent prices increase on average 4% annually! A fixed mortgage payment allows you to save for future projects and guard against inflation.
Tax Benefits: The government has created tax benefits to encourage customers to purchase. (Talk to your CPA to see which benefits apply to you).
Homeownership is and will always be part of the American Dream! There are many financial and non-financial benefits to take advantage of when owning a home. If owning a home is part of your dream, contact me today to discuss your real estate goals!

"We were completely satisfied with Kim. Kim went above and beyond traditional real estate agent responsibilities. Besides all the normal and big things that she did to help us sell our home she also did so many small things to help that made our home more marketable. She was very knowledgable in every aspect of the process not only giving valuable information, but most importantly sharing her insight into making the most of every part of the sale of our home. She was incredibly patient with me and treated our house as special as I thought it was. At all times Kim was encouraging that the house would sell, and encouraging with all the extra things that we did to the home, since it was an older home, to market and finish the sale. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is interested in selling their home. I am sure that she is just as accomplished, sensitive, attentive, knowledgable and persistent in helping someone find a home and I am happy to recommend her for that as well. On a personal note, I will miss having to work with her as I enjoyed working with her immensely and greatly value her opinions. I always felt that she was working "just for me" even though I knew that she had other people she was working with. Kim made me feel that anything I had to say was important and responded to messages quickly, cheerfulliy and competently, never keeping me waiting to hear back regarding our home. Anyone would do well to have her as their Real Estate Agent. "
