Submitted by dylan on

Most property owners do not stay in the first home that they purchase. Many property owners have lived in their property for several years and have built-up equity in their home. This property owner can either sell and use their equity for down payment; or if they've saved some money, they can rent their property and use their savings towards a purchase for their new home. If the income from renting their property has a positive cash flow, they can use these funds to offset the payment on their new home. Contact your E Real Estate Corp.
