Ascend Waterleigh Braxton- Apartments

Ascend Waterleigh now Braxton is located across Avalon Road on 10091 Tuller Loop, from the main community on Western Way.  Western way leads right to Disney World, Springhill / Towneplace Suites and Flamingo Crossing Blvd. Disney’s Flamingo Crossing area will have a Super Target and estimated 60 stores on the way.  Ascend Braxton is apartments for rent.

Currently a 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom 771 square foot apartment is $1365 per month at Ascend Waterleigh.  At that price per month a mortgage could be less.  If you are considering rent at that price why not contact a mortgage lender and see about getting pre approved for a home loan.  You will at least be putting money into something you can possibly get back in years to come.

Many people assume they will not be approved for a loan.  The worse case scenario is you try and the lender explains why the mortgage could not be approved.   The explanation will help you set goals to get future approved.  In the meantime you could rent from Ascend  Waterleigh while you plan for a future home.
