"To leave satisfied you must arrive prepared."

Buyers01.jpgTake a look around and start equipping yourself with the tools necessary to make your best purchase. In most businesses, knowledge equals power, and real estate is certainly no exception.

A wealth of housing data clearly demonstrates that housing is a good long-term investment. According to a study by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, 60 percent of a homeowner’s wealth is from the equity they have built in their home. A Federal Reserve study has shown that the average homeowner’s net worth is 46 times the net worth of the average renter.

"Over the long-run, the median home price of an existing single-family home in California has increased about 9 percent a year since 1969" - the California Association of Realtors®. 

Inviting LivingHomeowners accumulate significantly more wealth than renters. According to the most recent Federal Reserve Survey of Consumer Finances, the median net wealth of a renter household is $4,800, while the median net wealth of a homeowner household is $171,700. 

The average age of first-time home buyers is 32, according to the National Survey of Families and Households (NSFH). Thirty percent of homeowners are under 31 years of age. Ownership peaks at 76.7 percent among those age 61 to 70, and then declines slightly to 68.5 percent for that age 71 and older. 86 percent of a national sample of Americans believe that people are better off owning than renting, according to the Fannie Mae National Housing Survey.

Every Market is different, so it pays to use a Realtor.  The real estate market in the Sacramento Region is certainly volatile lately, and all of the information about buying a home can be overwhelming.  I can help.  Connect Realty allows me to connect you to all the best Real Estate 2.0 technologies to simplify your search and make your transaction seemless, even in today's complex and complicated real estate environment.

When you're ready to act or just have questions,
contact me.  I can bring the knowledge and experience every transaction should be based on to bear on your behalf.   Let me help you find that Rocklin or Granite Bay home or custom lot in Auburn or Loomis.  I have access to 2.5 million listings in 23 northern California Counties, that over 70,000 agents worth of listings.

Ask me about my Buyer Incentive, which can save you thousands at closing.  Let me negotiate the best price, guide you thru all the dozens of forms and disclosures and all your inspections.  I'll protect your interests with the highest standard of ethics.  I will simplify your transaction for you as much as possible - it's not your job - it's mine.

I look forward to working with you, and Connect Realty is ready to serve you.
