Bettendorf, Iowa -
Quad Cities area mortgage provider John Cornish is helping first-time home buyers secure the mortgage they need to move into their dream homes.
“Buying a home for the first time can be very intimidating,” says John Cornish. “There are just so many intricacies to the process that it should come as no surprise if first-time home buyers hesitate to pull the trigger. From finding the right property to securing financing and making an offer, you need someone on your side who guides you through the journey, making sure that you are doing it right every step of the way. When you choose to partner with me and my team, you get to benefit from our joint experience that spans several decades helping buyers achieve their goal of homeownership.”
One of the biggest challenges to homeownership, especially for first-time buyers, is saving up for a downpayment that can be as high as 20%. However, with the right guidance, first-time home buyers can check their eligibility for certain tax breaks and federally backed programs to cover those expenses. These include low downpayment and no downpayment mortgages, mortgages with reduced interest rates and approval criteria, and even certain programs available exclusively for veterans through the VA.
“For example,” says John, “the Federal Housing Finance Agency offers discounts on interest rates to first-time home buyers to make homeownership more affordable. If you meet the criteria that qualify you as a first-time home buyer, you can get discounts of up to 1.75 percentage points on a conventional 30-year fixed-rate mortgage. You can also be eligible for a Federal Housing Administration (FHA) backed mortgage that offers a 3.5% downpayment for residential properties. You do need to have a FICO credit score of at least 580 but you can also get an exception even if your credit score is as low as 500.”
