The number one fear most first time home-buyers struggle with is the fear they can’t afford to buy a home.
While there are certainly people who aren’t in the financial position to purchase a home, becoming a homeowner isn’t as expensive as you might think you don't need to have $150,000 saved — your credit might be fine, there are so many financing options that you don't even know about...yet and sometimes, all it takes to be able to buy a home is a little budgeting.
If you’re worried about being able to afford a home, we will start by
taking a good, hard look at your finances. We will get everything you need together and get you set up with a few different lenders to "shop" for a mortgage. Don't worry, we will teach you how to get the best loan for the best rate.

You are going to need all of this information before you explore your financing options. So let's make it really easy and get it all together so you are ready and can just press send.

THIS IS ANOTHER BIG WORRY
“My credit isn’t perfect. How am I ever going to get a loan?”
If you have less-than-perfect credit, a major fear you might be dealing with is how you’re going to get a mortgage.
Many first time home-buyers fear that their credit report might hold them back from securing a loan. But while getting a mortgage with not-so-hot credit can be a challenge, it’s certainly not impossible.
We will get you a free copy of your credit report. According to an FTC report, 1 in 5 Americans have a mistake on their credit report — and those mistakes can end up costing you in the long run. The lower your credit score, the higher your interest rates will be, so it’s important to make sure there’s nothing inaccurate on your report that’s dragging down your score.
Once you’ve reviewed your credit report, we will get you on track to do everything you can to bring up your score if you need to. We will do this before you apply for a loan, like pay down any high credit card balances, which will bring down your credit utilization and bump your score. You’ll also want to make sure to pay all of your bills (including your rent and utility bills) on time, which will help show lenders that you’re responsible with your debts.
If you do all of these things and still get stuck with a high-interest mortgage, it’s not the end of the world! You can always continue to work on increasing your credit score and see if it makes sense to buy now or wait.
