Dog, diploma, diamond, diaper, divorce, death, and debt-free living. Very different words that all have one thing in common: they can impact finances in a major way. Here are some facts about the 7 D’s:#1) Owning a dog can cost between $1,500 and $10,000 a year! Yes, you read that right. People can spend ten THOUSAND dollars a year on their pup. This doesn’t even include the fees associated with adoption or paying a pet deposit (if renting).
You’re probably wondering why we told you all of this, and we promise there’s a point. As 2023 continues to ramp up and people try to figure out how to keep their finances intact while facing a recession, they need resources. As their Realtor, you are one of their most trusted advisors.
Being able to show them how financial decisions can impact their future and their ability to buy a home can give them the opportunity to put themselves on a smarter path. Making sure your buyer is financially stable in the areas that matter before purchasing their house will give them more opportunities to build equity quickly, rather than paying down debt.
At Churchill, we partner with our clients (your buyers) to give them the education they need to empower themselves as homeowners. We work with them to get on a smarter mortgage plan that focuses on their goals. This begins with looking at their current financial situation and seeing how they can make simple and sustainable changes to make buying a home a reality.
Cost of living is high, and so are interest rates. Choosing to buy a home while deep in debt won’t make life easier. As you can see from the stats above, life’s biggest decisions come with big financial commitments. Let’s work together to make buying a home as simple and stress-free as possible for your buyers!
