5 Ways Owning Your Home Can Be Cheaper Than Renting

Rose Voorhees Real Estate

Hi, I’m Rose Voorhees and I love helping first time homebuyers in Seattle make buying their first home more affordable. Let me show you how! 

Having lived and worked in Seattle for over a decade, I am passionate about making homeownership accessible to the people responsible for this city's valuable culture and community. 

For that reason, I work with first time homebuyers to help them build wealth and stability in a city where rent continually prices out the very people who built it.

Rose Voorhees, Artist and First Time Home Buyer Expert

Hi, I'm Rose Voorhees, I've been helping first time home buyers since 2021. As an artist myself, I have seen too many creatives be out-priced of their rent. I help first time homebuyers of all backgrounds build wealth and find stability in Seattle, so they can continue to bring life and beauty to our city. 

Don't Let That Happen to You! 

Most first time homebuyers qualify for some type of first time home buyer program that makes their first purchase more affordable. In many cases, their mortgage payments can be less than they spend on rent. Because I didn't want to see more of the people I knew throw the money they had earned away at ever escalating rent, I became a real estate agent to help them build wealth and find stability at home - without having to sacrifice the community they had built around them. 
Let's see what you qualify for, everyone is different, and it all depends on your income and goals! 

Here's How! 

Did you know first time home buyers can purchase a home for 3% down, with a lower interest rate than a typical loan? 
Did you know some are able to qualify for a mortgage with up to $60,000 in down payment assistance? 
Depending on income, many home owners are qualified to write off property tax payments and mortgage interest payments on their taxes.
This can make homeownership much more accessible to many in the neighborhoods they want to live in, without having to wait and save while money is tossed away on rent.

Attentive, savvy and a joy to work with, highly recommend choosing Rose as your agent!

"Rose is an amazing agent! She helped us buy, and then acted as our agent as first time sellers. We felt very supported in both transactions- she was especially helpful in supporting the extra stress that comes with selling. 

 Attentive, savvy and a joy to work with, highly recommend choosing Rose as your agent!”
