When you buy real estate on the Western Slope of Colorado you enroll in a forced savings plan. It may sound weird, but it’s true. No matter what your budget it, you find the money to make your monthly mortgage payment. This may be difficult sometimes, but in the long-run, this payment is more than worth it. Month by month you pay down your mortgage, and when you do so, you are increasing your equity (the amount of money you can sell the house for minus what you still owe on it)! When you look at the bigger picture, over time, home ownership helps you build wealth. When you find the home you love, making your mortgage payment isn’t so bad, because you know it’s going towards something you can love and call yours. Being Montrose real estate agents, our passion is the find people not just a place to live, but a place that they’ll love to call home.
