For millions of Americans, owning a home is a wish. Are you one of them? Owning a home is a dream which can be fulfilled for all Americans today, if you follow a few simple steps. It does not have to be a dream just out of your reach, it can in fact be a reality.
Dedication to your goal. First and foremost you must set a reasonable goal. People who set goals are more likely to achieve what the want in comparison to people who do not set them. Are you really where you want to be right now? Are you happy with your job, your living situations, your bank account? Yes these questions may be materialistic, but unfortunately they are realistic in today's world.
I do not care if you have boatloads of debt, and you have not paid your credit cards in months. It is never ever too late to get focused! Success is within your reach. If you want to accomplish the dream of becoming a homeowner, make it more than just a dream.
First, set your goal. Where do you want to be? How will you get there? Need help on that one, let me know? Personally, I have created a goalmaker program to get your thoughts in order, organized, and ready to begin the road to owning your own home. Make your list today!
Do damage control.... Get all of your bills together, no matter how big or how small. Try not to forget a one. No matter how depressing or overwhelming it may be, this indeed is an extremely important step on the road to reality. Then separate the bills into two piles. Needs and wants. There are bills you need to have; Electricity car insurance and so on. Then there are bills you want to have. For example those bills from department stores which almost always carry an extremely high interest rate and drag you down!
Talk to the man with the $$$. There is no better reality check than to talk to a lender. Yes, I am not going to lie, this may be extremely disheartening. Although, this too is also an extremely important step. By speaking to a lender you will also receive more goal setting ideas and information to get you on track to do what you need to do!
Bring out the band-aids. Now the real work begins. Your credit may need some work, but not all is lost. It is not as difficult as one may think to repair your credit, and you do not need to pay someone to do it! You can do it to succeed. With a little help and a few answers, you can be on the road to making things right.
When I am confronted with a potential buyer in need of fulfilling their dream to become a homeowner, I never turn them away. No matter how grim their situation may be. I know with their dedication, honesty, and motivation on making their dream a reality, we can on the future make it happen.
