Great News For First Time Home Buyers
There really is no better time in the past several decades to become a first time home buyer! Buyer benefits are amazing and it's still a great time to cash in on a super interest rate.
BENEFITS TO BUYING NOW
Massive inventory on amazing homes out there
Super Low prices on almost all homes including foreclosures and bank owned homes.
$8000 tax credit on your next tax return just for buying for the first time
Rock bottom interest rates make for a payment you can live with.
First thing you need to do is get pre-approved. Talk to a lender, mortgage broker or your bank to discuss interest rates and different payment options for your financial situation.
Get a pre-approval letter ready to submit to sellers when presenting an offer. THis shows you are a buyer that has done your homework and you are serious about buying.
You still can buy a home with little to no money down but you will have to have some out of pocket expenses such as earnest money and inspection costs. These can run between $500- $2000 including both costs. Learn more buying options here.
With so many homes on the market, make a list of the features you can live with and those you can't live without. Consider more detailed features such as a window from the kitchen to the backyard to keep and eye on your kids; extra shop space in a garage, or RV parking for the future. These things typically go beyond square footage and amount of bedrooms.
Get a GREAT Agent. Did you know it costs you NOTHING to use a buyers agent? REALLY!? The seller of the home pays the commission to both the buyers agent and the listing agent so it really benefits you to use a buyers agent. A buyer's agent will work for you and not the seller. So you can be sure they have your best interest at heart. It doesn't matter which home you choose, they just want you to be happy with your purchase. Our buyers agents go above and beyond their duty when helping buyers find and buy their first home.
