Buy vs. Rent
Owning a home makes more sense financially and from a lifestyle perspective than renting a home.
Improving the condition of your home will not only make your life more enjoyable, but it can also increase your home’s value and make it worth more.
Energy-efficient updates, from adding insulation to upgrading your air conditioning unit, can reduce your monthly utility bill!
Fixed mortgage rates don’t go up, even if the cost of everything else does. Lock in a low monthly payment that you can afford!
Since homeowners have to pay their mortgage every month, they are routinely putting money away instead of squandering.
Benefits of home-ownership include deducting mortgage interest payments, deducting eligible expenses and in some cases can avoid federal taxes on earnings from the sale of a home.
Nothing compares to the personalization and privacy that comes with owning your own home. Once you have your place, you can make it all your own.
Outgrowning Your Home?
Whether it’s due to a lack of space, a growing family, or a change in your needs and wants, moving up in the real estate world is an exciting step to take!

Buying and selling real estate in Mesa, Scottsdale, Chandler, Tempe, Gilbert, Queen Creek and Fountain Hills can be a daunting task. It’s a process that involves balancing several tasks at once and maintaining intimate understanding on a variety of topics that are not typically required in one’s daily life.
