Today I’d like to discuss a few different ways that a home’s location can make a difference when you’re in the market to buy.
At 0:28 in the video above, you’ll see two different homes that were built by the same builder. They have the same floor plan, with only a few slight changes as far as exterior upgrades go. Chances are that you’d guess one costs more than the other simply because of the better picture. One of the homes was built in Chandler, and the other was built in Gilbert, so they’re within 10 miles of each other. When they sold, one sold for about $100,000 more than the other, and the differentiating factor was the more expensive home’s location.
According to The Washington Post, homes close to a Target sell for 5% more on average than other homes. Forbes s ...

Today we’re going to take a closer look at whether it makes more sense to rent or buy a home in today’s market. At 0:43 in the video above, you can see that back in the early 2000s, rental rates decreased as home prices rose. Under those conditions, renting was a more attractive option because it was cheaper in comparison to what it costs to buy.
"Rent is only going to go up over time."
If you take a look at what’s happening currently, the price per square foot is skyrocketing, making rental rates spike. The expectation is that the price you’d pay for rent today is less than what you’d pay a year or two down the line because that’s the trend. With a home purchase, you are able to lock in a 15- or 30-year rate so your payment stays the same for the duration of the loan ...

Many buyers in today’s market are wondering how they can afford homes when prices are going up so much. One thing to consider is that there is a difference between the price of the home and the actual cost of the purchase.

As you’ll see in the chart at 0:27 in the video above, the cost of owning a home has been going down or staying stagnant because interest rates have been very low. People in today’s market wish they could go back in time to purchase a home at a lower price than what it currently is, but our low interest rates actually provide the opportunity to buy a home for the same cost it would have been just a couple of years ago.

Simply put, our low interest rates have made buying homes more affordable. But why are rates this low?

The government has been printing money, and they ...

Are you looking to buy a nice, custom, or semi-custom home but you’ve found that prices seem a bit out of reach? There are two strategies I’ve learned from millionaires that will allow you to get the home of your dreams:
1. Buy a smaller, more affordable home now. Once you’ve bought a more affordable home, you can make improvements to it, pay down the principal, and watch the value increase over time. Once your equity has grown, you can then sell the home in the future, using your equity as a down payment to buy a new one.


2. Buy a second property that will earn you money by renting it out. By renting out a second property, you can put away a certain portion of the rent collected each month and then apply that toward the down payment on the home of your dreams. If you also choose to rent out ...
