How can I make my mortgage interest tax deductible?
Whether you would like to learn some tips and tricks to help you become debt-free faster, or you would simply like to access a better rate, contact me today to get started!

Here are some of today's best options if you are looking for a new mortgage:

DID YOU KNOW...
Preparing for a mortgage will increase your chances for approval. Don’t buy or lease big-ticket items or increase debt for 6-12 months prior. Purchasing things such a new car, furniture or major appliances worsens debt-to-income ratios, which can make you ineligible for the best available loan terms.

HOMEOWNER TIPS
Exterior Renovations:

If you’re thinking of selling your home, or you simply want to spruce it up, exterior renovations can significantly increase its value and curb appeal. Aside from more expensive undertakings such as new roofing and siding, there are some projects you can take on yourself, such as creating attractive flower beds or purchasing a new front door. With each project completion, you will be happier with your home, and increase its appeal to buyer when it comes time to sell!
