About Marlin Dginguerian

A lot can be said about Marlin Dginguerian, as an expert Realtor, however the expression ‘Rising Star’ really sums it up nicely!

As with most power agents in the real estate industry, Marlin studied business in college; and to this day she uses the knowledge gained in school to aid her in successfully closing transactions. Post-college Marlin took a job in the tech sector, where she managed a prominent e-commerce company and played a pivotal role in the day to day operations.

After honing her skills, and helping grow the company for five years, Marlin decided that she wanted to work in an industry where she could utilize her interpersonal skills and really make a difference in her clients’ lives. Real estate was exactly what she was looking for, as it afforded her this exact opportunity.

Transitioning into real estate, Marlin took a job as a transaction coordinator at a local real estate firm and stayed there for a couple years. During that time, she managed to absorb an incredible amount of knowledge regarding the industry and how it operates.

Having developed a solid understanding of real estate, Marlin obtained her license and set out to make a name for herself as a Realtor. Initially starting out as a rental specialist, Marlin has quickly become THE agent to list with. In fact she has averaged a listing a month since she joined our team!

Benefits of Buying Real Property

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.
