Real Estate mogul, Sean Conlon, host of The Deed: Chicago on CNBC, was recently asked the question, should you buy? Or should you rent a house?
“I am a true believer that you save every penny and you buy your first house… and that is still the fastest path to wealth in this country.”
Conlon went on to suggest that first-time buyers put down 10-20% “if they can make it work,” and to remain in their home at least 4-5 years to see a return on their investment.
Who is Sean Conlon, and why should you listen to his advice?
Within a few years of working in the real estate industry, Conlon had established himself as one of the leading agents in the United States and has founded 3 billion-dollar brokerages dealing in residential, commercial and investment sales. Since immigrating to America from the United Kingdom in 1990, he believes very strongly in the American Dream and the role that homeownership plays in achieving it. Conlon is quoted on his website as saying:
“I treat people the way I would like to be treated if I went in to buy a house and I work harder than anybody I know. I think if you do that in America, you will always succeed.”
Homeownership is an investment you can leverage against in the future that not only provides shelter and safety but also helps you build your family’s wealth.

"Changing companies after 7 years isn’t easy and moving a team of 5 makes it even more painful. Justin, Heather, Lisi and all the rest of the girls made our move smooth and painless. I have worked with a lot of people in this industry over the last 15 years and the RE/MAX Elite crew ranks at the top. Very seldom do you get what was promised before you agree to move. With this move, we received everything and more. Justin and I went to broker training together and we share the same business/ethical values. RE/MAX Elite has been a perfect fit for my team. Thanks for all of your support!"
