Cost avoidance when buying a house

There is a constant debate about whether it’s better to put 20% or more down on a home or if you have 5% down ready, that you should jump into home ownership. We don’t believe there is truly a right or wrong answer to that. The change in your monthly payments between the two options is typically minimal, especially with your first home, remember, these payments are spread out over 25 years!

Testimonials
Christina was an amazing agent to work with. She remained patient with us and changed directions with us many times without hesitation. Being new to the city, Christina was very welcoming and made us feel like we were meeting with a family friend and not a real estate agent. We will highly recommend Christina and her team to anyone and everyone. It is very clear that Christina enjoys her work and it is a passion for her and not a job.
