Breaking Down Homeownership Age Barriers
Correcting the misconception that millennials can’t buy real estate.
I'm Emily Anderson, a 24-year-old real estate agent. Most people think you have to live in the suburbs and be friends with my mom to be a real estate agent, but not anymore. Today I'm breaking down the age barriers associated with real estate and homeownership.
This year, I've helped seven millennial clients find the home of their dreams. All of them were able to buy in this tough market because they knew one huge secret: you don't need a 20% down payment to qualify for a home loan. By utilizing first-time homeowner programs and working closely with a trusted lender, buyers can secure home loans with as little as 3% down.
I know millennials hate talking to people face to face, but filling out an online form is not the same as speaking directly with a loan officer. If you don't have a lender you trust, reach out to me. Working with the right people will prepare you for the whole process.
"You don't need a 20% down payment to qualify for a home loan."
Even if you're just playing with the idea of buying a home, let's schedule a buyer's consultation to review your situation. If you add up the rent you pay in one year, I guarantee that you'll give homeownership more thought. Start preparing to buy before you think you're ready.
If you're ready to start investing in your financial future, reach out to me by phone or email. I look forward to hearing from you.
