There are (understandably) a TON of questions about what the best practices are with real estate.
This page is all about providing you with solutions and clarity on anything & everything real estate, so here are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions!
- Where do I start if I want to buy my first home?
A great place to start is online! It’s common practice for sellers to list their home online, complete with photos and sometimes even a virtual tour! After you’ve gathered some data, you can take that to a real estate agent who can point you in the right direction and help you find your dream home.
- Is there a “best“ time of year price-wise to buy a home?
Though typically the best time of the year to buy a home is fall since inventory surpasses demand, it’s always best to speak with a local real estate agent! They can give you insight into your specific neighborhood because every region will be different.
- Can I buy a home with no down payment?
Currently, there are 2 types: USDA loans and VA loans. If you qualify for either of these, then you are eligible to forgo the down payment! Some buyers can get a mortgage with no down payment if you take out a government-backed loan, which the federal government insures.
