Home Buyers - Get Ready for a Mortgage Now!
Don’t wait until you’re ready to move to start preparing financially to buy a home.
If you’re like the vast majority of home buyers, you will choose to finance your purchase with a mortgage loan. By preparing in advance, you can avoid the common delays and roadblocks many buyers face when applying for a mortgage.

Click Here to Watch the Full Webinar "Sell First or Buy First" - Melana goes into a LOT more detail about Options!

Which comes first ... Buy your new dream home? 
That's the fun part - shopping and buying - and you don't want to miss out on your dream home!  Many people need to sell their current house in ordder to be able to afford a new home.  Even if you can get a loan for the purchase, can you really afford to make 2 payments?   For how long?

The Connection Between Home Prices & Family Wealth

Over the next five years, home prices are expected to appreciate 3.22% per year on average and to grow by 17.3% cumulatively, according to 


most recent 

Home Price Expectation Survey.

So, what does this mean for homeowners and their equity position?
As an example, let’s assume a young couple purchased and closed on a $250,000 home in January. If we look at only the projected increase in the price of that home, how much equity will they earn over the next 5 years?

Over a five-year period, their equity will increase by nearly $43,000! This figure does not even take into account their monthly principal mortgage payments. In many cases, home equity is one of the largest portions of a family’s overall net worth.
Bottom Line
