Tired of shoveling out rent for a home or apartment that doesn't feel like yours? Take heart, changing from renter to homeowner may be easier than you think. I'm here to help. In today's market; the normal time frame between making an offer on a home and closing is 30-45 days!
Where do you start?
First of all, learn the financing basics. Get pre-approved and become a smart shopper.
When you buy your first home, making monthly payments probably won't be a problem. After all, you're already paying rent to your landlord each month. It's coming up with the lump sum needed for a down-payment that may seem impossible. Fortunately, there are options to make buying your first home a happy reality.
Programs for first-time buyers. There are several local or federal government programs that help first-time buyers get into the housing market. Ask me about these options.
Your lender. Your bank or credit union may help as well. Are you debt free and own something free and clear, like a car? Your lender may lend you the down-payment by securing it against this asset.
