More Millennials expected to buy in 2016

One of the biggest barriers to buying a home for Millennials is the down payment. A recent study from TD Bank showed that more than 70 percent of Millennials (those between the ages of 18-34 in 2015) say they don’t have enough funds for a down payment to buy a home.

The good news is that home buyers don’t need to have a 20 percent down payment to buy a home. FHA or loans that are insured by the Federal government allow as little as 3.5 percent down. And the government is making getting these loans less expensive. The Federal Housing Administration began reducing the mortgage insurance premium recently for these low down payment loans and that move is going to help Millennial buyers, according to research firm RealtyTrac.

Nearly one-in-four buyers used FHA loans in the second quarter of 2015, up from fewer than one-in-five buyers the year before. Researchers believe that lower down payment loans that cost less can help more Millennial buyers purchase their first homes this year.

To Tell Or Not To Tell Your Landlord?

 

Once you’re ready to move from renting to owning, you have a big decision to make: When do you tell your landlord?

Frankly, honesty is always the best policy. Once you start getting serious about shopping for a home, it’s important to be open with your landlord, especially if you’re still under a lease.

By being open and honest, you won’t have to fret about your landlord finding out that you’re looking to buy.

One suggestion: Offer a positive review or serve as a testimonial on the management company’s website if you’ve had a good experience – good word of mouth will help them out and let you leave in good graces.

If you’re ready to make the jump, email or call me – we’ll get started.

Have a blessed day !

Your Own Home

 

Antique White. Wild Mushroom. Linen. Coffee Cream. No matter what the paint can says, it’s still beige. Chances are just about every place you’ve rented had beige: Beige carpet, beige walls, beige curtains – that’s a whole lot of beige.

When you own your home, you can paint your walls any color you choose. YOU pick out the carpet. It is YOUR house and it should feature YOUR colors. (And if you choose beige, at least it will be YOUR beige.)

It’s a great time to buy. If you’re ready to explore what it takes, let’s get started. Email or call me today.

How Can You Reduce Your Taxes?

 

Do you want to save on taxes? Buy a house!

Here’s something a tax professional would tell you about owning a home: You’ll be able to deduct financing costs and interest in the year you buy. After that, you’ll be able to deduct the interest and property taxes you pay.

No one likes to pay taxes, but buying a home makes it a little less taxing. Literally.
The IRS has a great guide – Publication 530 – called “Tax Information for Homeowners.” Email or call me, and I’ll send you a copy.

Have a blessed day !
