Everyone would like to save their money when it comes to buying a house. But, is there a way that you can do that and get the house you’re looking to make your home? The answer is yes.
A couple weeks ago the President gave a speech, his State of the Union speech. However, one thing he left out was the housing market. Why is this important for you?
When buying a house, the government and many cities and towns offer help with your down-payment. There is a lot of money out there that buyers can benefit from, if they knew it was available. By a recent survey from Freddie Mac, they found out that 70% of buyers are unaware of any form of down-payment assistance. This down-payment assistance helps with middle class families, not just lower-income families. Your realtor should be aware of national and state programs to help you save your money when buying a house. Your realtor should also have knowledge of such programs in order to help you buy your first house to save you money.
As an example of how this can be to your benefit: If you buy a house in Atlanta in the city proper, they have up to $40,000 that they can give to your clients. And, that is just one example.
This knowledge will translate into any city, depending on the program. Your realtor should have all the details and should know which programs will work well for you and your family in order for you to save your money. Make sure you mention this to your realtor before deciding to buy your house if the realtor hasn’t yet. It would be a shame to learn you could have saved your money after the fact.
