There are definite advantages to owning a home, as a vehicle for building wealth and the security of owning a safe place to call home. Matthew Gardner, Windermere Real Estate’s Chief Economist, speaks to the advantages of owning a home in this short video. While most of us can agree with all the points in Matthew’s video, the reality is that sometimes life happens and it might be wiser to make a temporary decision to rent before you explore buying a home. Lifestyles change, relationships change, jobs change . . . wherever you are in life, if you need information about condos, townhomes or houses for sale, or if home ownership is a year or two away, I have resources for lenders, market data, movers, contractors, property managers and rental properties to help you with whatever you need.
