There is no denying that it’s a buyer’s market in Sandy Springs. If you can, then you definitely need to be purchasing while the prices are down and interest rates are low. However, young professionals and new couples typically have not had the opportunity to save enough money to put 20% on a new home and think that they are unable to take advantage of the buyer’s market. Well, this is when FHA financing comes to play.
By qualifying for an FHA loan, you are only required to put 3.5% down in order to purchase a home. While you are thinking that not many homes in Sandy Springs would offer FHA loans, take a look at Serrano.
