Deciding to Buy
Consider your motivations for buying to help determine if you are really
ready to enter the market.
Think about your personal reasons for moving. Do you need a larger
home to accommodate a growing family? A shorter commute to work? Don't forget to
consider the difficult aspects as well. Are you emotionally attached to your
present home - will it be painful to leave? Being mentally and emotionally
prepared is the first step toward a well-conceived and well-executed move.
You Feel Pressure to Move Now?
Do you feel that you'll be priced out by a rising market if you
don't buy now? Or are you afraid you'll miss bargains in a troubled market?
Contact me to help you decide how to proceed.
How Long Do You Expect to Own Your New Home?

seller, making a home purchase financially unattractive unless you plan to own
the property for several years. Remember that you'll face another round of
closing costs when you sell; so your house will have to appreciate 8-12% just
for you to break even.
Assess Your Financial Condition
Do you have enough cash to fund the down payment and closing expenses?
Can you comfortably afford the mortgage payments as well as taxes and insurance?
Do you have any credit problems? Contact us and lets discuss what options you
Homeownership as an Investment
While markets can be turbulent and values occasionally decline, owning a
home remains an attractive investment over the long term. Additionally, don't
forget to consider the tax advantages of homeownership - mortgage interest is
deductible and profits from the sale of a home are usually exempt from capital
