HOW TO SAVE UP FOR A DOWN PAYMENT Saving up for a down payment is one of the biggest challenges for aspiring first-time homebuyers. A typical down payment can range from 5 to 20 percent of a home’s purchase price–that’s no small chunk of change. Although it might seem overwhelming to rack up thousands of dollars, practicing some discipline and using the right tactics can help you pull it off, making it possible for you to go from renter to proud homeowner.

To help you save for a down payment, consider these tips from the American Bankers Association: Develop a Budget and Timeline. Start by determining how much you’ll need for a down payment. Create a budget and calculate how much you can realistically save each month–that’ll help you gauge when you’ll be ready to transition from renter to homeowner. Establish a Separate Savings Account. Set up a separate savings account exclusively for your down payment, and make your monthly contributions automatic. By keeping this money separate, you’ll be less likely to tap into it when you’re tight on cash. Shop Around to Reduce Major Monthly Expenses. It’s a good idea to check rates for your car insurance, renters insurance, health insurance, cable, internet and cellphone plan. There may be deals or promotions available that allow you to save hundreds of dollars by adjusting your contracts.

Monitor Your Spending. With online banking, keeping an eye on your spending is easier than ever. Track where most of your discretionary income is going. Identify areas where you could cut back (nice meals out, vacations, etc.) and instead put that money into savings. Look Into State and Local Home-Buying Programs. Many states, counties and local governments operate programs for first-time homebuyers. Some programs offer housing discounts, while others provide down payment loans or grants. Celebrate Savings Milestones. Saving enough for a down payment can be daunting. To avoid getting discouraged, break it up into smaller goals and reward yourself when you reach each one. If you need to save $30,000 total, consider treating yourself to a nice meal every $5,000 saved. This’ll help you stay motivated throughout the process.

Why Use A GREAT Mortgage Broker & Not A Bank?

GREAT CHOICE – When you go to a bank, you’re only being offered the bank’s mortgage products. A mortgage

broker has access to dozens of lenders. This gives you the ability to obtain financing with poor credit, past bankruptcies, self-employed & other situations that the strict banks do not want to see. GREAT RATES – Mortgage brokers receive wholesale rates with lenders & beat the banks retail rates. Mortgage brokers have access to programs, promotions & unpublished rates you simply can’t find at the banks. Many times I can offer help with the down payments. GREAT RELATIONSHIP – Once the bank sells you a product, you’ll likely not speak to the representative again. Mortgage brokers take a proactive approach to show you how to pay your mortgage down faster, refinance in ways that help you make money & make sound mortgage choices. I am always available. You can call/text/e-mail me anytime-24 hours a day. Try getting ahold of your banker at 8pm or on the weekend.

NO CLOSING COSTS - NO BANK FEES - NO APPLICATION FEES
