Home Ownership Made Easy in Los Angeles or anywhere else: Advice to first time home buyers.

When considering buying a home for the first time in Los Angeles or anywhere else, you need to answer these questions.

 I have noticed that many people have been inundated with dubious or bad information. Ironically this is not just coming from the media, but relatives and friends as well. So how do you make heads and tails of all the misinformation out there?

Are you aware that Fannie Mae did a National housing survey in 2011 and discovered that the four biggest reasons why people buy a home, has nothing to do with money: 1. they want a place where they can raise their family and feel safe, 2. they want plenty of living space, 3. They want to have control of their space and 4. They want a place where they can raise their children and family.

To help you, I would recommend ask yourself this one important question:

Does buying really make better sense, rather than renting? My advice is forgetting the financial benefits for a moment, focus on: Why did you first begin to consider purchasing a home?

 I will give you an example:  My father was renting most of his life. As he was getting different landlords certain things started to annoy him. These were some of the landlord complaints that started to get to him “why do you always laugh so much?”, “no you are not allowed to put holes in the wall to hang paintings”, “your son should not be typing after 10pm it is disturbing us”, “No you cannot put an Air-conditioning in the window” Anyway you get the picture, he got fed up of following various rules and policies, so he decided he wanted to be the one making the rules.

 Getting the right answer is easy:  Search your soul and find out what your long term goals are. Then take the answers, review and analyze and sleep on your decision. Once you did all that, you will know that you have the right answer for your situation. Then you are ready to buy and you will know why you want to buy a home.

Then and only then, get a seasoned knowledgeable Realtor and discuss your situation on how to achieve your goal of home ownership.
