The right Real Estate Agent makes a difference

The process of buying a home can be daunting, with many important questions that need to be answered. Choosing the right real estate agent to help you buy your home can make all the difference.  Jennifer turns an otherwise difficult, stressful process into an experience in which you are informed, confident and in control.

Jennifer knows that moving to a new area involves not only finding a home, but exploring school options, locating doctors and learning about your new community. Jennifer will help you search for the right home based on price, location and other personal factors. Jennifer will take care of all the details no matter how big or small.

Real estate negotiations and contracts can be complex and intimidating. Most people have little experience in real estate transactions. After all, how often do you buy or sell a house? As a real estate professional, getting you the best terms and price is Jennifer’s job. She will negotiate on your behalf throughout the entire process to ensure that your best interests are protected. 

Buying Vs. Renting

  • You can get a good deal.
    This is a buyer’s market and prices on homes have come way down.

  • Mortgages are cheap.
    Low interest rates mean that a monthly mortgage payment is equal to, or less than, a monthly rental payment.

  • You’ll save on taxes.
    You can deduct mortgage interest from your income taxes. This means that owning really does cost less than renting. 

  • It’ll be yours.
    You can decorate and upgrade however you chose. Few landlords will let you paint your den garnet and black! 

  • There is a lot to choose from.
    There is a big inventory of homes for sale so you can buy the home you want in the location you want. 

  • You’ll get a better home.
    Good rentals are hard to find. 

  • It offers some inflation protection.
    Over the long-term, home ownership is still the best investment.

  • It’s forced savings.
    You’re paying yourself by building equity. Renting means you’re paying for someone else’s equity. 

  • Put your money to better use.
    With a monthly rent of $1,000, you’ll pay more than $60,000 in rent over five years! That money could be building equity in your own home.
