Buying a Home
From Contemplation to Closing

Want to save thousands of dollars while buying your dream home?

Let’s start with a shocking statement.

Renting isn’t throwing your money away.

Did I get your attention?

A financial educator that sits down with individuals every single day to discuss their finances just said that maybe buying a home isn’t always the best choice.

How can I say that? Well, I’m only concerned with your financial well being. I don’t get paid if you decide to buy a house.

You see, the people that say, “You're stupid if you continue to rent!” are the ones that make money off your decision to buy. They could also be individuals that are trying to justify their own decision to buy.

Here’s what you need to know:

The decision to buy is YOURS and you need to evaluate your financial life to determine if now is the right time.

This course will not only help you decide if now is the time to buy, but it will also help you navigate the home buying process in a conflict-free way if you do decide to buy a home.

$15,925

That's how much extra interest you'll pay on a $300,000 mortgage by going from only 4.25% to 4.5%. It's only a minimum change in interest rate, but a substantial change in total cost. This course will show you how to shop around and get the best rate so you can keep more money in your pocket. If you only take that away from purchasing this course and it gets you the lower rate, that's a 625% rate of return on your $97 investment.
