Super Bowl and Your First Time Home

What does the Super Bowl and Your First Time Home Have In Common?

No matter who your home team is buying a home is a win for your family.

Buying your First Time Home is as much of a win as your home team making the Super Bowl!

You are not going to the Super Bowl unless you are an NFL player reading this. However, you could take a home buyer class and host next years party in your first time home. It is as much of a win for you as it is for your home team making the game.

Especially if you are a millennial you may be missing a key element of your financial future. This year while your enjoying the game at your friends house watching the game. You know the one you took an Uber to so you could have a good time. Think how nice it would be to host the party instead, and at the same time investing in your future. You probably played some sort of sport growing up, going to practice only to graduate and move on to working for a living.

Ok You practiced and studied and maybe even got a sports scholarship. There is no junior team that trains you to invest in your future. A select few in today’s world will get an early start investing in retirement.

The Millennial way of thinking is, Too young to worry about that!

This is the wrong answer, most of your parents have or had jobs with a pension. They own the home you lived or still live in, and have invested in retirement accounts. 

Pensions today are far and few between, Home prices continue to rise as you pay rent to pay off someone else’s mortgage contributing to that persons retirement. The Millennial gets the part of living life right but falls a little short planning for a comfortable life when they stop working.

NEW REAL ESTATE SEARCH TOOLS

To our many loyal clients and prospective Home Buyers and Sellers.

We are currently developing our new website ChooseMyHome.com  for coastal Virginia Real Estate!

Many of our loyal follows of the former website  Chooseahomenow.com  we hosted for many years helping people with their house purchases and still do. While it was conceived on an older computer platform lacking bells and whistles, it served its purpose.

Times have changed.

In today’s fast moving world, technology has advanced by leaps and bounds. By comparison to past years leaving us with inadequate capability for site improvement because of the original platform’s limitations.

It was clear a change was needed. We made the decision to move ahead to reflect today’s digital age and techie demands.

With a full scale production of a new modernized, user friendly website standing up to present day standards.  And once again the expectations of our clients is underway.  We are pleased to announce and welcome you to the launch with its fresh new look and feel!

Once the tweaks are made the plan is to then rework the old website. Bringing it to its maximum capabilities.  Both sites will work together and not be going away.  A close observation will ensue to see which site provides the better user experience for our clients.

Confident you will find the new website more intuitive and helpful, we encourage you to browse its pages as it evolves and invite you to stay awhile!
