Self-made millionaire David Bach was quoted in aCNBCarticleexplaining that"the single biggest mistake millennials are making"is not purchasing a home because buying real estate is"an escalator to wealth.”
Bach went on to explain:
"If millennials don't buy a home, their chances of actually having any wealth in this country are little to none. The average homeowner to this day is 38 times wealthier than a renter."
In his bestselling book,“The Automatic Millionaire,”Bach does the math:
"As a renter, you can easily spend half a million dollars or more on rent over the years ($1,500 a month for 30 years comes to $540,000), and in the end wind up just where you started — owning nothing. Or you can buy a house and spend the same amount paying down a mortgage, and in the end wind up owning your own home free and clear!"

Summary of their experience:
Heather was truly awesome to work with! She was very knowledgeable, explained everything to us as we went along and always answered our questions very quickly whether we called or emailed her. She is super friendly and made the whole process so easy! When my fiancé and I first started looking for a realtor, we had reached out to a few people before Heather was recommended to us. Each realtor I reached out to, I asked them to "reply all" so my fiancé would see the email chain as well. Heather was the only one who actually "replied all" and answered every question that I had right off the bat. I knew from our first communication that she was going to be great to work with, and she really was! I would definitely recommend her to anyone in the Central/South Jersey market."
