Stop wasting money paying somebody else's mortage!
Are you assuming you can't get a loan to buy a home and that renting is your only option?
Well, we all know what assuming does to us!
If there's any chance you might be able to qualify for a loan, it's crazy not to go for it and try to buy.
As long as you get your credit rating up to 680, most lenders will consider offering financing. There are also some that have special programs for first-time homebuyers with lower credit ratings. (Contact us for a list of lender suggestions if you don't have a clue where to start the process.)
If your credit is falling short, speaking with a lender can help you learn about some strategies for getting ready.
With interest rates still extremely low, you can usually buy a home for less than what you're paying in rent, often getting more space than what you're renting, so why not try to find out if you can do it?
Once you've completed the pre-approval process, you'll need to get a letter of pre-approval to provide to us so we can then help you start your home search in earnest. Once pre-approved, your interest rate is locked in, but usually only for up to 90 days. That may sound like a long time, but it's not given the time it can take to find the right house and get through the purchase process.
The information in the letter will tell us your budget, the type of loan you will be getting and the loan officer assisting you. Having this confirmed also serves as proof to sellers that you are a qualified buyer, not a tire-kicker.
Contact us for assistance in figuring out how you can start the process of exploring the home-buying process and options. It would be our honor to help you, no matter how long it takes for you to be ready to pull the home-buying trigger!
