BALTIMORE, Aug. 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- "My mission is to help people and families find a home," explains local Realtor Steve DeRita. "It's what gets me out of bed every day."
DeRita's points to recent economic news as a reason to celebrate. Unemployment dropped to its lowest level in 8 years, and consumer spending is on the rise – all signs of healthy, sustainable economic growth. Moreover, with home ownership at historic lows, the market feels primed to make a big jump soon.
"Home ownership is still the American dream, and rightly so," muses DeRita. "As I've come to realize the importance of family in my own life, I understand the significance of a place to call home is in that equation. It's more than just a living space. Home is where family begins. A homestead is a legacy, an investment in the future."
Younger people – those Millennials who have been unfairly derided for staying in their parents' basements – are beginning to move out in droves, but too many are choosing to rent rather than buy, observes DeRita. "Today's real estate market has something for everyone, from the condos of Fells Point to the mansions in Timonium. For anyone considering buying a home, now is as good a time as any, and I am positive I can help find a home to fit your lifestyle and budget. The savings windfall, tax advantages, and pride of ownership are a feeling like no other."
DeRita points to steadily rising prices as another reason to buy now rather than further down the road. He adds that unlike the conditions that led to the real estate bubble and collapse of 2008, today's market is being driven by tangible forces – Bloomberg.com cites tight inventory, tight credit and mortgage rates creeping upward chief among those forces. Those who still view real estate as an investment opportunity should likewise consider purchasing today.
Given the understandably strong memories of 2008, the real estate industry needs optimistic professionals like DeRita more than ever – professionals who put their clients' needs first and have a vision for the future that aligns with the aspirations of would-be homeowners. "I take pride in representing the best interests of clients in all of my real estate transactions, and hope that you will trust me if you or anyone you know is thinking about selling or buying real estate in the state of Maryland."
