Power To The People
Knowledge is power as the adage goes. The more information you have, the higher the likelihood the decisions you make are going to benefit you and those you care for. Knowledge cannot be taken away, usurped, or destroyed once obtained and building wealth in the community is central to consolidating that power.
Every Wednesday we will provide answers to some of the questions most asked and misinformation most conveyed to me around homebuying. We will also use this forum to address questions you may have around buying property, whether it be lending, credit, saving, what you need, what you don’t need and sharing insights around the process with the community. We will start with one of the most common comments I hear:
I can’t afford to buy a house.
You can’t afford not to. Rents in the Puget Sound region from Everett to Lakewood are skyrocketing. With renting comes required deposits; first and last months rent to potentially be provided; and application fees to be paid. All to go towards adding equity and security to someone else’s property. This kind of money could be put towards starting on the path of building your own wealth and security with homeownership. With down payment assistance and lender specific credits, money is not the biggest barrier to buying, misinformation is. Contact Bascomb Real Estate Group and let us help you stay informed!
