Central Ohio-based realtor Abi Odari has advised that buying a house is a way of building financial security while this pandemic period serves as the appropriate time to buy one.
“The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has made 2021 a singular time to become a homeowner. Mortgage rates are relatively low right now. Since the interest rate can play a significant role in the loan’s total cost, snagging a mortgage while interest rates are low could be a good move,” Realtor Abi Odari told New Americans Business.
Abi, who qualified as a realtor in 2017 talked about his passion and other things he does in creating amazing customer satisfaction working as full-time real estate agent in central Ohio.
I help people purchase or sell real estate properties. I advise clients about market conditions, conduct walkthroughs, and provide guidance and assistance through the process of buying or selling properties from beginning to end.
Buying a house is a good way to start building financial security. As you pay down the mortgage, you build up home equity which is a valuable financial resource.
