5 Signs You’re Ready to Buy Your First Home

    Ready for a change? Here’s how to know:

    1. Your current rent amount is more than $1,600 a month

    If your current rent amount is more than $1,600 a month, you can afford your own home!

    Check and see the homes in your area that you can afford at the SAME MONTHLY PRICE you are already paying now!

     

    2. You saved at least 1% of your home purchase price


    You saved up at least 1% of your home purchase price for a down payment.

    Wait – what was that?

    ONLY ONE PERCENT?

    That’s right! It used to be that you needed to have 20% of the home purchase value in liquid cash for your down payment. Now, some loan packages require as little as ONE PERCENT DOWN on the home of your choice.

     

    3. Your credit score is at least 620 (or close to it)…

    If your credit score is at least 620 (or close to it) we can help you with your home purchase starting today!

    If your score is lower than that, don’t feel discouraged.

    Give us a call at (703) 350-2830 and we can provide valuable insight into how you can improve your credit score that might surprise you!

     

    4. You are committed to your community for the next few years
