Information For Buyers



Home ownership has economic benefits and more!

The economic benefits of homeownership are well known. From tax incentives and building equity to the boost the housing sector provides to the overall economy, it is no surprise that owning a home continues to be an essential element of the American dream.
In addition to the financial benefits, homeownership has also been proven to offer substantial social benefits for families, communities and the country. The most recent evidence appears in a new report from the National Association of Realtors, called “Social Benefits of Homeownership and Stable Housing.”

Some of the report’s notable findings include:

Stronger Communities:  Homeowners move far less frequently than renters. They are therefore embedded in the same neighborhood and community for longer, allowing for a high level of social cohesion.
Higher Educational Achievement:  Research shows that students whose parents are homeowners tend to stay in school, have access to more educational opportunities, and have an overall better educational outcome than children of renters, who tend to change schools more frequently.
Better Well-Being:  Homeowners report higher self-esteem and happiness than renters, which results in better overall physical and psychological health.
Lower Crime Rates: Because they are vested financially and emotionally, homeowners are more motivated to deter crime by getting involved in voluntary crime prevention programs.

Thinking about buying a home? 

If you’re a first time homebuyer or haven’t bought a home recently, I recommend that you begin with an in-person Buyer Consultation. That will enable me to help you clarify your needs for your new home and give you an overview of the process.  I will introduce you to a financial expert who will assist you with getting a mortgage pre-approval.  After your consultation, I will begin to work with you by diligently searching the current inventory to find homes that meet your expectations.  You can begin the process today, by contacting me at 732.581.9735.
