So, with everything going on, rates going up, inflation at its highest in years, credit card interest rates going up, what should I do? First take a deep breathe and think about what’s right for you. If you have been thinking about buying a home, even with home prices going up, it can be the right thing to do.

Owning a home gives you the benefit of deductions like interest and real estate taxes, which make for a good reason to get out of that rental. Approximately 15 % of a mortgage payment, interest and taxes are deductible. The home you purchase is YOURS and should appreciate, so selling some day will make you smile a lot. Consider different programs available like FHA, or first-time homebuyers, VA or grant programs. educate yourself or call me. I would love to give advice.

Today, depending upon credit and income, it can be as easy as 3% down or 3.5% down. Seniors can purchase using a reverse mortgage. Materials are available to help you learn about choices and people like me love helping you make the right decisions and set goals to make them happen.
