The Biggest Thing Keeping Young Homebuyers out of the Market Isn't Student Debt

9/18/2015

FOR BUYERS: DON’T LET STUDENT DEBT SLOW YOU DOWN

If you have student debt, it’s understandable as to why you may be reluctant to consider buying a home. You may be thinking, shouldn’t I be renting until I am more financially secure? Believe it or not, the amount of a family’s student debt owed, does not significantly affect the likelihood of owning a home. As an Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®), I can help you find a home in a budget where you feel comfortable. I look forward to working with you!

FOR BUYERS: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CREDIT WHEN BUYING HOME

You probably already know that bad credit is not a great start when looking for a home. What you might not know is that homeowners insurance can cost you about twice as much as normal when you have bad credit.

As an Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®), I understand credit and how it can factor into the home buying process. Feel free to reach out to me with any questions that you may have!
