What You Need to Know About Down Payment Assistance Programs

Today I’m joined by Alejandro Juarez of AMEC Home Loans to answer some important questions you may have about down payment assistance programs. In short, a down payment assistance program allows you to obtain a mortgage loan and skip the down payment aspect of it. These programs offer up to 5% worth of financial assistance toward your loan. There are certain qualifications you must meet before applying for one, though. To find out what those are and learn more about down payment assistance programs, watch my latest video. http://austinhomesupdate.com/what-you-need-to-know-about-down-payment-assistance-programs.html

If you do have pets in your home, we have some helpful tips for you that will help you sell your home faster and for a higher price. For example, you’re less sensitive to pet odors as a pet owner, so hiring a professional cleaning crew to freshen up your carpet, rugs, and upholstery will make sure everything smells clean and fresh.

What Zillow’s Day in Court Says About Their Zestimate

Should you trust Zillow’s Zestimate to give your home an accurate valuation? If you follow real estate news, you know that one Illinois homeowner doesn’t think so. This homeowner recently filed a lawsuit against Zillow claiming that the discrepancy between what she claims her home is worth and what Zillow valued it at is hurting her ability to sell that home. Zillow is a starting point for determining home value, but there is a better way to get an accurate value of your home. To find out what that is, watch my latest video.

The Difference Between Being Pre-Approved and Pre-Qualified

Many people thinking being pre-approved and pre-qualified for a mortgage are the same thing. However, they are mistaken. There are actually some pretty big differences between the two. For example, anyone can get pre-qualified based on a conversation with a lender, but that won’t make an offer stronger. To find out why you should always get pre-approved, watch this short video.
