Questions you may have........
Is the time right for me to purchase a home rather than rent? Yes! With so many Down Payment Assistance Programs, like the Home in 5, NOW is the time to fire your landlord! Remember, when you rent, your monthly check goes into your landlord’s wallet or toward a mortgage in their name. When YOU choose to buy, you can deduct the mortgage loan interest from YOUR income taxes, which will give you another tremendous savings throughout the year, as well as build your own equity.
If I qualify for a home loan, what else do I need to consider when buying? One of the biggest considerations beyond your mortgage will be property taxes. Normally, taxes and insurance can be – and are – added to your monthly mortgage payment. You will know the amount of mortgage (principal and interest), taxes and insurance prior to signing on the dotted line. There are other financial considerations that might come into play, as well. Depending on the type and location of the property you purchase, you may have homeowner’s association or condo association dues. These are paid to the community you live in for upkeep costs, landscaping, etc. Of course, you will always have the costs of utilities, but you will most likely have to pay for these whether you rent or own.

"Having Doug and Serena as Realtors was honestly the best experience we've ever had. We just clicked and they listened to everything we wanted. Whenever we found a house we wanted to see they would go above and beyond to make sure we saw the house that day. It was also nice and easy to get ahold of them. It felt like we were family and not just another client."
