Attention renters! Are you ready for a place of your own? And, I don’t just mean somewhere to live because, if you’re a renter you already have that! I mean a home that you can paint and fix-up the way you want, where you will have less neighbor worries and, there are so many more benefits to being a homeowner, not the least which is no longer paying someone else’s mortgage or nest egg by helping to build their equity, but building your own instead.
Many people I talk to think they can’t afford to buy a home. Well just today, July 22, 2015, a search for properties less than $90,000 in El Paso County resulted in 15 results. Now, keep in mind there are down payment requirements for most loans except VA, but a $90,000 loan amount at a 4% interest rate (which not everyone will qualify for) equals a monthly payment for principal and interest of $429.67 (not APR)! Add 1% for taxes and insurance and we’re talking about a payment of roughly $505! As you see, with monthly payments this affordable, you just can’t afford not to! Not to mention, there are some areas in El Paso County enjoying up to 14% appreciation, meaning if it’s worth $100,000 today it’s potentially worth $114,000 next year!
Look at the interest rates bank are paying for savings and compare…you’ll find that, even at 2% there is no comparison!
And if that’s not enough to get you off of the fence, let me nudge a bit and introduce the El Paso County Bond program, which offers down payment assistance equal to 4% of the mortgage amount. And you don’t even have to be a first time home buyer to qualify! In case you missed it, this might mean zero down.
