Do you believe that you need a credit score of 800, 20% down, and your first-born to buy a home in Chatsworth?  
 
Well, according to the National Association of Realtors, Ellie Mae & Freddie Mac, this is simply not true.  
 
In 2015, the Average FICO scores of approved loans was 723. For conventional loans, it was 755, and FHA - 689.  
 
On the Average, All buyers put down 10%, whereas first-time buyers put down 6% and repeat buyers 14%.  (The first-born thing was just a little joke to lighten the mood a little).
 
In addition to this, rents are going up. 88% of property managers raised their rent in the last 12 months.  
 
So, would you rather pay your landlord's mortgage, or your own?  If this idea of owning your own home has been kicking around in your mind, now's the time to check in on your status.
