Lace up your sneakers, you’re buying your first home!
Good credit, low debt, and a steady income could get you low interest rates and terms.
With interest rates at record lows, you may be thinking about refinancing your existing mortgage into a new one. As a homeowner, there are good reasons to consider this option: to get a lower interest rate, to drop private mortgage insurance, or to pull cash from your home’s equity to consolidate debt or make home improvements. The short answer, of course, is to have more money each month for groceries, car payments and the orthodontic’s bill.
While no one has ever said buying a home is a simple process, wouldn’t it be nice to reach out and press the “easy” button when it comes time to qualify for your mortgage. If you’re an active member of the military - or a veteran - qualifying for a VA home loan might be the next best thing.
