Los Angeles Home Buyer Tips | Buying a Home in Los Angeles

Congratulations! You are ready to take a step towards fulling the American Dream of homeownership, a primary component of wealth building. A Harvard study showed that the median wealth of homeowners is 34 times higher than renters and that over half that wealth results from home equity. As you pay down your mortgage each month you build equity.

Over time your home will appreciate building a nice nest egg for your retirement. You also have the tax benefits of mortgage interest and property deductions. You will also have a place you can make your own without catering to the whims of your landlord. What could be better.
