Hey, it’s Sue Bonzell with Terra Firma Global Partners, your realtor in Sonoma County. And there’s still rumors that our interest rates are going to go up after the first of the year, and as our property prices in Sonoma County have continued to kinda tick up a little bit, this is still a great time to buy a home in Sonoma County.

Now there are some good programs out there for first-time home buyers or even not so first-time home buyers with some really reasonable ways to get a good down payment, maybe not so much of a down payment, make it a little more reasonable for you to get into those homes. Now the thing that I love about this and about being a home buyer right now is just think about this, because we all know rental rates in Sonoma County are ridiculously high, I mean absolutely ridiculous, so instead of writing that rental check and giving it your landlord who is building their assets, how about you write a check for your mortgage to build your assets for your future?

There are a lot of options for you out there, now’s the time to contact your favorite realtor and find out what can be done, that can get you to a local lender who can get you pre-qualified, so you can find out what you can to start building your assets right now.

I’m Sue Bonzell with Terra Firma Global Partners.
