#QuoteRadioTalkShowHostMary Ann Cadorna: Inspirational message “Sour Grapes Makes for Bitter Wine” 01-06-2017
On Real Estate Talk, my radio talk show, I always ended with an original inspirational quote. I’m sharing it as a positive message for the New Year; now remember sour grapes make for bitter wine and no one wants to drink from the chalice of bitterness. So, if you want to avoid becoming bitter you have to work on becoming better! Never allow your grapes to sour for you’ll never be able to taste your vintage year.

Sour grapes prevent one from moving forward in life, and for a lot of people it stops them from homeownership. You see, no matter what life hands you, owning a home is one of the best stabilizers you can have. Now that fixed rates interest has become the go to interest for home loans, it offers economic stability. Providing you don’t touch the equity your monthly housing payment will never go up.
In addition, you have deductible benefits that renting does not allow. Also, you gain asset value for it appreciates, and having equity (increased value in a home) is better than the 0 value renting gives.
For example, if you rent for $2000., a month for 30 years, you will have spent $720,000., that went to absolutely nothing. For the same $2000., a month affords you to buy a $270,000., after 30 years you own it, and you have the tangible monetary value in appreciation, versus ZERO from owning nothing after 30 years of renting.
FROM BROWN WEALTH MANAGEMENT: For instance, if you can afford a mortgage payment of $2,000, then the annual mortgage payment is $24,000 ($2,000 X 12 months). This corresponds to an initial mortgage balance of $270,000. If you are making a 20% down payment, this corresponds to a home value of $337,500.Feb 27, 2013
You can battle out life’s difficulties better if you have a home. For the most part, I consider it one of the best stabilizers for your family and their future.
