Hello! Welcome to Model Home Monday!
Today, I decided to do something a little different.
In my previous posts, I have shown you different available homes. And in every video, I have reiterated “this IS your NextHome”. I say that because.... well... I mean it!
So let’s talk about what’s stopping you. ~ Not enough money saved.
~ Bad credit
~ Buying a home is a risky investment ~ Not knowing when is a good time to buy.
None of these are definitive factors that prevent homeownership!
I’m here to offer you insight, solutions, and a path to achieving your dream of owning a home!
Call me! Let’s talk. Ask me questions!..... Nathalie Montes
Before you buy, think of selling!
The career and relationship questions might seem obvious, but when you consider moving into your own home, you’ve got to probe even deeper. -
Does your career path mean you need to maintain a bit of mobility? Could a promotion or career advancement in the next five years mean you’ll have to relocate? If so, maybe you’d better keep on renting. Or if you’re planning to start a family, you might outgrow that starter home before you know it. -
It’s all about determining your first home’s shelf life. Before you buy, think about selling the home you’re considering: How is the neighborhood? Will potential buyers love the area as much as you do a few years down the road?
Is the local real estate market on the upswing? What kind of development is going on nearby? Commercial, retail, residential — or is that a multi-stack highway interchange they’re building over there?
Does the home have a quirky location or features you don’t mind but that might turn off future buyers?
Also worth thinking about: Your starter home may serve as a passive income provider in the future. Consider how the property might work as a rental unit. #homebuyer#buyinghouse#mortgage#firsttimehomepurchase#homeowner#buy#rent#sell#marynedproperties
What has been the best new start you’ve had? ✨. As today is Monday, it made me think about new beginnings. ✨. Every moment is a chance for a new beginning and I can truly say, the best new start I ever made was when I finally rebranded my business bringing it entirely online. It was terrifying and scary in ways. But at the end of the day I knew I needed my brand to reflect the changing market and the increase of technology. ✨. And what about you? Can you share a new start you’ve had?

Good morning! This #MOREGroupMonday we’re showing off our new sign in the new office 😎 Have a great week!
Meet Arielle! This #realtorrockstar is totally killing it in the Detroit area. Her Instagram is full of inspirational quotes for those who #hustle. Give her a follow and if you're buying a home in Detroit you know who to call.
From Arielle's Instagram:2018 was the year of specificity and consistency. I said exactly what I wanted and through hard work, determination, I accomplished, if not exceeded my goals. Was it easy? Nah. Worth it? Of course.
This year isn’t about working harder (I’ve proven I can do that) it’s about working smarter. I’ve got strategies in place and I’m ready to take it to the next level. Starting with my first home under contract of 2019
“the dwelling features tall windows that add a romantic transparency to its unpretentious countenance. "We wanted to see and enjoy the beauty as much as possible," says Mr. Bush.” - @archdigest Happy Presidents’ Day!

Happy first birthday to #thewallsthatballsbuilt! She got a brand new door, paint from head to toe, wallpaper, window treatments, built in cabinets in the living room + breakfast nook, new lighting throughout, an added bedroom in the basement, retrofitted a utility room upstairs, brought the 100 year old garage back from its death bed + filled the whole thing full with happiness. I wake up every morning, a little bit in shock that this sweet place a c t u a l l y belongs to me. ♥️ The kitchen and bath are next on the list but it’s safe to say we all (@helpusell, most of all!) need a little home improvement nap!

First Time Home-Buyers Tip #3
Research Neighborhoods for BEST FIT.
After you’ve found some homes for sale in your price range, be careful not to make a decision based on the property alone. According to a NAR survey, 78% of home buyers believe neighborhood quality is more important than the size of a home. And 57% of buyers would opt for a shorter commute over a larger yard. So, make sure you factor neighborhood both quality and location into your decision.
Ask your real estate agent for information on crime rates as well as the quality of schools around your prospective neighborhoods. Calculate your new commute times to see if they seem manageable. Visit the neighborhood at different times and days to check for traffic conditions, noise levels, and if people are comfortable being outdoors.
Most importantly only choose a neighborhood that you and your family feel good about.
