When is it a good time to make an investment in your future?
September 13, 2010
So, I have made an appointment to meet with Bryan and Nikole on Sunday evening. Thankfully they aren’t picky eaters like my husband since I am cooking dinner for them. I hope they like food with some spice in it! I have been deprived of onions and garlic for the longest time (my husband hates even the smell of them) and I can’t wait to cook something with those ingredients in it. Anyway, they live in our Ashford Park neighborhood which we just closed out a couple of months ago. They just might be the youngest buyers we have ever had. Both of them were under 21 when they went on contract in April of this year. The burning question that makes them interesting as buyers to me is “when is it a good time to make an investment in your future?” These two are waaaaayyyy ahead of the curve. I told them this as they sat in my sales office. I thought of myself and wondered how my life would be different today if I had bought a home earlier in my life. I often meet people who have ridiculously low mortgage payments or have paid off their homes because they bought 15 years ago. Since I am well over 15 years older than them, that secure home owner could be me…if I had just bought a home when I was their age. So, I guess even though it is never too late to become a home owner, the reverse is also true: It is never too early to become a home owner.
