A mortgage, basically speaking, is a loan. When you set out to purchase a home, no one expects you to have, say, $500,000 in cash. So that’s where a mortgage comes in: You borrow the extra money that you need to buy your chosen home, agreeing to pay it back in the coming years.
The huge debt a mortgage incurs can be seen as a burden. But its appeal lies in the fact that the mortgage helps you to buy an asset with the expectation that its value will increase over time, which adds to your financial portfolio, gives you a big tax break and, you know, finances a place for you to live.
Along with being expensive, a mortgage can also be complicated, so we’re breaking down the basics for you.

Great Article regarding tax law and owning a home. https://www.fo
"We sold our home and bought a new one this past summer, 2015, with Will. He was extremely helpful on both ends of the deal. He sold our house in less than 2 weeks, above asking price. He advised us every step of the way and was honest, respectful, and knowledgeable. While looking for our new house, he was patient and never pressured us to bid on a house we didn't love. He is knowledgable not only about real estate, but also about home construction and can offer valuable insights into potential problems or remodeling. Unlike many agents, he does not overwhelm you with unecssary suggestions or comments as you look around a potential home. He lets you make up your own mind and offers his thoughts when needed. He was very skillful in how and when to make an offer and actually talked us out of bidding too high on a home. Finally, when looking for a new home, you spend a lot of time with your agent. Will was a pleasure to be around and was great with our kids. I highly recommend working with him!"
