A staggering fact to me is that here in Akron, Ohio more people RENT a home than OWN a home. While this may not seem like an issue to most, I tend to gravitate toward the bigger picture. Rent prices are out-pacing inflation, investors are buying and holding onto large amounts of property resulting in a lack of wealth distribution, renters have lower disposable income than home owners, and the part that hits home for me...instead of funding their own retirement and future, Renters are lining the pockets of landlords and funding their landlord’s retirement.
It is through this idea of educating and empowering that I found my passion of teaching people the process, steps, and benefits of buying and owning a home. While buying a home may not be for everyone, the knowledge of HOW to buy a home should be a staple of knowledge for all.
After all, how can you do something if you have no idea how to do it? Let me be the light that guides you to the life changing event that is home ownership.
