For Brandon Ceglia, a career in real estate wasn’t just destiny; it was in his blood. Coming from a family of real estate investors and builders, he basically grew up in the industry. Keeping his focus on real estate from a young age gave him a definite edge, handily obtaining his real estate license at age 20 while balancing course work at Santa Monica College. He immediately immersed himself in practicing every aspect of real estate, from construction and permits to the actual transaction itself. If there’s a facet of real estate Brandon doesn’t love, he’s yet to find it.
When you work with Brandon, you can expect an honest, straightforward deal with no fluff. He doesn’t beat around the bush, but rather gives you every detail of his strategy. Growing up in Tarzana and Calabasas, he knows this market. He combines his lifelong experience, expertise, and bold honesty to bring untouchable service to neighborhoods in Sherman Oaks, Studio City, Tarzana, Woodland Hills, Westlake, and Malibu.
When he’s not closing transactions, you’re likely to find Brandon out enjoying the city he loves, whether mountain and road biking in the Santa Monica Mountains or catching a Dodgers game. He also loves getting away to Cabo with his family.
There are wide array of benefits for buying real property. From social to economic, and even political, benefits of owning real property can't be easily counted. Real property offers an anchorage to family geographic zoning. Owners enjoy the benefits of forming closer connections with their community, through local businesses, schools, worship places and neighbors.
As always, economic benefit is a good starting point. Did you know that by paying $900/month rent you are throwing away $54,000? Yes, rent is a waste of money. Rent can't be even claimed in tax returns. In contrast, monthly payments towards mortgage payment plan will expand homeowners' wealth as equity is created. Moreover, buying a real property increases credit rating through regular payment history and location security. Even more, real property buyers can claim interest in their yearly tax returns (consult a tax expert for more details).
On the political level, homeowners exercise more influence on political decision makers. Because most county and state profits are based on real property taxes, politicians answer demands of property owners before renters (who are usually relocating). For example, when the financial crisis struck the U.S. markets in middle of 2007, the federal government quickly enacted laws to protect property owners. The same issue played a crucial role in 2008 Presidential elections.
In addition to economic and political benefits, real property buyers enjoy better social standings. Because property owners are more constraint to move, they form social networks with their local community. Neighbors invite each other for birthdays and other events. Housewives form local groups to help raise the children of the community. Even in safety, most communities utilize local neighborhood watches to keep crime level at a low level.
Finally, by buying a real property, individuals achieve the American Dream. Thanks to the U.S. government system, ownership rights are at the foundational core of the United States. A sense of accomplishment and satisfaction beholds property owners as they are free to express themselves within their own castles. Buying real property is as simple as desires of potential buyers.This information is an estimate and for research purposes only.
