“I just love paying someone else’s mortgage.”

Or at least that’s what your landlord hears every time they cash your rent check. Let’s think about this for a second...

So your rent on a 2 bedroom, 600 sq ft apartment in the most ok-est part of town with a shared porch is $1100 dollars a month. After 12 months you have paid $13,200 and what do you have to show for it? A tense-at-best relationship with your upstairs/downstairs/right-side/left-side neighbors and $13,200 less in your bank account.

What if it didn’t have to be this way? What if you can have an expansive 😉 1100 sq ft home with 2 bedrooms and *gasp* your own backyard for that exact same payment (or less)? And what if I were to tell you that of that $13,200 approximately 60% of it would stay in your “account” in the form of equity? It happens and it’s called putting your big person pants on and buying a house.

It may seem overwhelming. It kinda is. We are talking downpayments, pre-qualifications, and lots and lots of house shopping (ok, that part is actually pretty fun). But what if I were also to tell you that there are people out there who’s job it is to hold your hand through the whole process and they cost you a whopping ZERO dollars. That’s people like me- a real estate agent.

So if you’re tired of funding Joeschmoe’s next tropical vacation and you’re ready to join the grown-ups, let’s talk.

As a real estate agent, I’ve been lucky the last couple of years with the conditions of the market. We are seeing historically low interest rates making it easy for people to buy homes and we are also
