Home Buying Myth or Truth
Home Buying Myths

Buying a home can seem like a huge undertaking. You don’t need to be a first time home
buyer to find the process overwhelming. There is so much information available, how can you
tell what’s true and what’s a myth? Understanding the difference can help you make the best
decision for you and your family goals.

Top Home Buying Myths – And the Truth

The First Step is finding the Right House – Before you head out shopping, speak with a
lender to understand your financial options and how much house you can afford.

 You Can’t Buy a Home Without Perfect Credit – The truth is there are many loans
available which still offer good interest rates for those without that perfect score.

 You Need 20% Down Payment – First time home buyers can use FHA financing for as
low as 3.5% down. There are other programs too, such as VA and some conventional
loans with less than 20% down also.

 You Don’t Need an Agent – An agent not only knows the market and can help you with
value, but also customary charges, negotiation sand solutions to common hiccups.

 Schools Don’t Matter if you don’t have Kids – The neighborhood is always important to
home values, regardless of whether you yourself have children.

 New Homes Don’t Need a Home Inspection – Every home should have a home
inspection by a licensed inspector to check for existing or potential problems.

Buying a home is one of the most important financial decisions you’re likely to make in your
lifetime. Take the time you need to understand the process and learn from the professionals;
don’t assume that everything you read is true.
