What is holding you back from purchasing a new home?

February 15, 2016


Many times people contact me with concerns of why they are not moving forward with their dream of home ownership. There are many things that I hear but there are two that really stand out and are things we can assist with.

First, having debt. Whether it be a student loan, buying a car or an abundance of different things. This can be a large concern for people when making the decision on whether or not to contact a Realtor about buying a home. When it comes to debt, of course you would like to pay it off. However, this may or may not be an option for you. If that is the case, I would highly suggest contacting a loan officer. They may have some great ideas and options to help you pay off that loan sooner or make a change so you are able to be more comfortable moving forward with a home purchase.

Second, your credit. Of course, your credit score is something that is impertinent to whether or not you are able to get a loan for a home. If you have a low credit score and are having a hard time raising it, speak to a loan officer. Again, they may have great ideas on how to raise it quicker then you expect. Depending on the loan you get, the credit score requirements vary, you may be surprised on what you can do now!
