Are you thinking of home ownership?

Are you tired of renting?  Are you wanting to live by your own rules, rather than some strangers? Are you tired of being told you can't have a dog? Are you tired of your landlord telling you they are coming to do a walk through, or you have to move because your landlord is selling? 

It doesn't really matter what your "Why Buy" reason. Now is a great time to get out of your rental and into your own home.

We know the thought of homebuying can be stressful, but we are here to help make the process easier and to answer any questions you may have including:

• How do I get pre-qualified?
• How much home can I afford?
• How long does it take to close on a home?
• What is the home buying process like?
• How much is a Buyer's

The days may be getting shorter, but the list of reasons to BUY NOW is getting longer. 

The falling leaves and slowing days often cause the real estate market to do the same. But here are some reasons why this slower pace could actually be good for home buyers. 

1. There are fewer Buyers on the market  

As the market slows, this means there are LESS BUYERS on the market competing for the same house. This makes it easier to negotiate by giving Sellers less options to chose from. 

2. Sellers may be motivated by the end of the year

Closing by December 31st may be beneficial for Sellers in terms of taxes. They may be able to take advantage of tax gains or losses during the year, that might go away if they were to settle in January.
