Posted 4/25/19
Information Provided by The Paperless Agent
 

There are few experiences more exciting—or more stressful—than buying a home. But it shouldn’t feel like a gamble. 

When we work with buyers, our goal is to provide them with all the information and guidance they need to make an informed and confident decision about their real estate purchase. 

For many of our first-time buyer clients, that means clearing up some of the misinformation or “helpful advice” they have received over the years from family, friends, and even the media. 

Our latest report exposes the “Top 10 Myths That Trip Up First-Time Home Buyers.” But don’t be deceived by the title—even some of our experienced clients get these wrong! 

Check out the attached report to find out if you’ve been fooled by any of these common misconceptions. 

And if you’re thinking about buying a home this year, don’t fall for Myth #3! Contact us now so we can put together a plan to help you meet your real estate goals.

“With great power, comes great responsibility.”

You’ve probably heard the line, “with great power, comes great responsibility.” We can also flip that to homeownership: with great equity, comes great…mortgage payments. Sixty-six percent of Americans have a mortgage, and chances are, you may be one of them! Owning a home is one of the best things you can do to build equity and wealth, and paying off the mortgage comes with the territory in most cases.

This month, you’ll find some strategies to help you pay off your home early. Even if you implement one or two, you could find yourself on the fast-track to owning your home outright.

If you have questions about your own mortgage or how to get started, we have great mortgage professionals we can connect you with. Give us a call at 949-770-9888

January 2019 Report: What’s Ahead for Real Estate in 2019?

Posted 1/22/19

Information provided by the Paperless Agent

With so much uncertainty in the stock market right now, many of our clients are naturally concerned about where the housing market is headed in 2019.

Fortunately, the real estate market has some good news to offer. Economists expect sales levels to stabilize in the coming year and for home values to continue rising, although at a more modest pace than we saw earlier in the decade.

We’re committed to delivering the truth to our clients, whether it’s positive or negative. And the reality is, much like the stock market, the real estate market will experience ups and downs.

But people will always need a place to live and raise their families, and the majority of them will want to do it in their own home. Experts remain confident that the real estate market will continue to offer a path for Americans to build wealth over the long term … and we wholeheartedly agree.

If you’re concerned, or just curious, you should check out the link to the report, that answers the question: What’s Ahead for Real Estate in 2019?   Click Here for Report!!

Or head over to our blog, where we share even more  detailed real estate predictions and offer some steps you can take today to prepare to make a move this year: [https://ocrealestatelifestyle.com/]

If you have plans to buy or sell a home in 2019, reply to this email or give us a call at 949-770-9888. We can run a free Comparative Market Analysis on your current home to give you an idea of what it’s worth. And if you’re looking to buy a new home, we can set up a customized search so you’ll get notified when new listings that meet your criteria hit the market.
