Home is whereyou live, not what you own

Homeownership is amazing, but it’s not always the right time or place. However, just because you don’t own property doesn’t mean you don’t want to feel at home.

Benefits of Renting

While a long-term mortgage is right for some, renting can provide an excellent home without having to spend years saving up for a downpayment. Some of the other benefits include: homes out there. Let's find the one that's perfect for you.
Location flexibility
Before you fall in love with your dream home, it’s important to know exactly what you can afford. Finding a trusted advisor before you get in too deep can save you a lot of headaches in the long run.
Maintenance isn’t on you
This goes beyond just carpet cleaning and changing light bulbs. If something more costly, like leaky roof or drainage has backed up, then the cost isn’t on you. It’s on the landlord.
Can save you money because it's cheaper month to month
Not owning property means you’re not paying property tax. Not only can rent be cheaper than a monthly mortgage, but a rent controlled property provides a predictable monthly cost.
Not anchored down
Simply put, you can move. Once a lease is up, you can stay, find a new place in the same area, or find an entirely different location. Also, this is a great way to learn about an area should you choose to buy later on.

"Chris was an absolute rockstar to work with. It's not every day I meet someone as dedicated to his craft as Chris was. Throughout the entire process he consistently communicated, adjusted, and pushed the ball forward to find us the right house on our tight timeline. I will never work with another realtor again.…. and I would recommend every single buyer or seller to work with him. His character and tenacity are refreshing and he has what it takes.”

"The housing market is notoriously volatile and unpredictable at best, but my agent ChrisShepherd at Remax stayed the course with me until I found a home! We saw over 3 dozen homes within 8 weeks time and after many attempts we found a winner! Even after the sale was completed service continued past the move in date. I highly recommend anyone who is looking for a home to look no further!This is the office/real estate agent to assist in your journey to finding a home."
