Are You Ready to Make the Leap into Home Ownership? Here's How You Can Tell
Are you ready to make that leap from living at home or renting to owning a home of your own? While everyone moves at their own pace, here are some signs that you can use to determine if it is time to own your own home. Let's take a look at some of the reasons you can use to justify your decision.
Are You Sticking Around?
If you plan on moving soon for a job or think that you won't be in town much longer, it may be better to rent. However, if you are thinking about living in the same town or within the same county for years to come, it is time to put down roots. The stability that comes with home ownership may make you more prepared for a marriage and/or a family if that is something that you want. This stability may make you more attractive if you are single and searching for a long-term relationship.
Do You Have a Steady Job?
Those who have a steady job and know that they have a stable salary may want to make the move to home ownership. As long as there aren't any other major debts eating into your income, you can probably handle a mortgage and other costs associated with home ownership. The equity that you build in your home can help you build wealth for the future if and when you want to retire. Your home may also make a great rental property in the future, which can help you diversify your portfolio and keep you solvent for years to come.
You Are Spending More Time Watching Television Shows Related to Home Ownership
You may have caught yourself recently watching shows revolving around people or couples who are looking for homes. You may also be watching programs dedicated to giving tips as to how you can upgrade your home. If you watch these shows frequently, it may be a sign that you are ready to move out on your own and take on the exciting challenge of being a homeowner.
Are you ready to be a homeowner in the near future? Only you can say for sure if it is time to make that leap. However, those who are looking for a long-term housing solution may be ready to make that move. For more information, it may be worthwhile to talk to Beth Gaffer today.

"When I met Gene Donohue, he was only a Buyers Broker, but now over the past few years, he now has become Buyers/ Seller Broker. We will be selling our home soon and Gene will be selling it for us. Looking forward to same performance that we got when Buying a home
I have known Gene for over two years now and even today when I have questions about the market, he always is there to help me understand. I can't say anything other than everything above is Excellent.
Purchase price was right where we needed it to be. Inspection of the home was flawless. When we closed, Gene had put together a full portfolio for us of every transaction from first offer to getting the appraisal. Gene was well prepared for the closing. "
