Mortgages and the home buying process continually evolve and change to meet the needs of the ever changing consumer, adjust to the state of over all economy, and facilitate a strong housing market without becoming irresponsible again.
So, “No”, it is not like when your parents bought a home 20 years ago or even when you friend bought a home 5 years ago. But knowledge is power. As long as you know the facts, you too can be on the path to home ownership which most financial advisors still believe is one of the best long term investments you can make with your money.

And of course, educating and sharing the facts is one of my favorite roles as a real estate agent. Whether I am working with first time home buyers, move-up buyers, empty-nesters, or retirees … the entire transaction moves along smoother when we take as much of the uncertainty and fear out of the process as we can.
Did you know that there are still 0% down payment mortgage programs, 3.5% down payment mortgage programs, and then of course 10%, 20% … The key is to work with a mortgage professional who will talk you through all of your options.
Did you know you don’t have to have a perfect credit score to qualify?
Did you realized that buying a home can ultimately be less expensive than renting?
Remember until you discuss your current situation and goals with a mortgage and real estate professional, you may not have all of the facts. I am always available as a resource to you, your friends, co-workers, family members… feel free to call, text, 508-930-5259 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org any time!! I only recommend the best when it comes to mortgage professionals, attorneys, home inspectors, etc. as they are essential to successful transactions. Again, please do not hesitate to reach out if you are in need of a referral or just trying to figure how to start the process. It’s what I do… share information to help buyers and sellers meet their goals.
