The Value of Home Ownership - Chris Ayres Nails It!

We Love this Article!

In his Sunday Opinion piece in the August 17, 2008 Los Angeles Times, "Loving your house again," Chris Ayres explains why recent home buyers should be thrilled with their purchase. Not only do they have a roof over their heads, but in spite of the 'doom and gloom about a tanking market,' their investment is getting more valuable! He nails it -- with great good humor.

The article resonates for The Sanborn Team because it reflects our philosophy: buy the home you love and hang onto it. History shows us again and again that you'll have a ring-side seat during the financial circus and, at least in the Southern California market, with modest maintenance your home is almost certain to increase in value.
