I love working with first time home buyers! There is nothing like the joy of home ownership and I am so pleased to be part of bringing that joy to others.
Whether your first step is a condo or town home, new construction, a home in the Edmonds bowl or even in Lynnwood or Everett, I am ready, willing, and able to help you find that perfect spot to call home.
Here are a few thoughts as you start your first home dreamin’!
|It may be easier for you to buy because you don’t have a home to sell.
In highly-competitive markets, buyers who can only hold one mortgage at a time may be at a disadvantage when buying because of the timing of selling one home and buying another. You don’t have that problem!
|It is never too early to start planning and looking at your budget.
It’s true! Even if there are items to fix on your credit report or you need to save up for a down payment, let’s talk! I can help you flesh out your plan.
|Different lenders may have different options.
You might think that all lenders are the same, but there are a wide variety of loan products out there. Some cost more than others; some have more flexibility than others. I can help you find lender options for YOUR needs.
|Home ownership is one of the BEST ways to increase your net worth.
According to the National Association of REALTORS, over the past 15 years, the net worth of the typical homeowner has ranged between 31 and 46 times that of the net worth of the typical renter. That is because every mortgage payment that is made gains equity AND homes are an asset that appreciate.
