“This has been going on for Two Years!”

            “This has been going on for Two Years!”



Hi Joe,

I’m done waiting! I know you have heard me say this before, but my rent has gone up for the last time. You guessed it, I need a new pre-qualification. My income has gone up slightly since we last spoke and the credit should still be good.



I wonder how much more she will have to pay for a home by waiting these two years, but one thing is for sure “THOUSANDS”. This is someone who makes a huge salary and has plenty of dollars for a down payment, but just couldn’t pull the trigger.


There are many like Ann out in the market place that know they should buy a home instead of paying higher and higher rent. In Ann’s case she is paying $1600 for rent and is getting killed on taxes and has nothing to show for it except a bunch of rent slips.

Good morning Joe. This is a truth today and I am sure it will be true tomorrow too.

Good morning, Joe Petrowsky everyone who qualifies must make the critical decision and follow through.... there's no point in being priced out of the market....

Good morning Joe Petrowsky,

Its a shame there are many out there just like Ann! By waiting on making a purchase prices have escalated and she'll be paying thousands more for a home with a higher interest rate.

Renters' Fatigue is a new phenomenon to many tenants as landlords keep raising the rent rates. Glad you are there to help this tenant with a new chapter in her life.

I have a rent versus own spreadsheet as well as a cost of waiting comparison sheet.
