I understand that this is about so much more than size of the rooms or the yard. This is about finding the place that is uniquely you - one where you will create memories, grow in the present and build for the future. I am here to make sure that every decision you make is right for your lifestyle and your budget.


Home Buying Checklist



Buying vs. Renting

Compare Costs

Rental payments are gone, once you make them. But with each mortgage payment, you are "buying" something tangible and building up equity. The longer you own your home, the larger your equity.

Also, a home is an investment that helps you keep up with inflation. Although not all homes appreciate at the same rate and some years are better than others, real estate has historically kept pace with and usually appreciated faster than the rate of inflation.
