Easier to Play the Game

Real Estate

It’s much easier to play a game when you know the rules so you can avoid mistakes that may keep you from winning. Homeownership isn’t a game but there are some rules that will protect your investment and increase your enjoyment.

Most people want a home of their own to raise their family, share with their friends and to feel safe and secure. In most cases, it is also their largest asset. These suggestions can help protect your investment and make homeownership more enjoyable.

Maintain your home to protect its value
Minimize your assessed value to lower property taxes
Make extra contributions to save interest and build equity
Validate the insured value of improvements and contents
Be aware of current surrounding property values
Make mortgage interest payments deductible
Invest in capital improvements that increase market value
Don’t over-improve the neighborhood comparables
Keep records of capital improvement & other maintenance
