Put Your Housing Cost to Work for You
Simply put, homeownership is a form of ‘forced savings.’ Every time you pay your mortgage, you are contributing to your net worth. Every time you pay your rent, you are contributing to your landlord’s net worth.
The latest National Housing Pulse Surveyfrom NAR reveals that 85% of consumers believe that purchasing a home is a good financial decision. Yun comments:
“Though there will always be discussion about whether to buy or rent, or whether the stock market offers a bigger return than real estate, the reality is that homeowners steadily build wealth. The simplest math shouldn’t be overlooked.”

How Low Supply & High Demand Impacts the Real Estate Market [INFOGRAPH
"Audra sold my condo within 48 hours of listing. She helped me understand what needed to be done to make it ‘ready’ for the market. Priced it right. Did excellent marketing. Spent two days constantly showing my place. In the end, through her style, her knowledge, her expertise she sold my condo for thousands more than the asking price. In the process of keeping me calm, focused and ready for the showings. She was ‘all business’ but at the same time, sensitive, smart, and most helpful. Working with Audra was a fully satisfying experience and I gained a new friend in the process. "
