Don’t Let Student Loans Stop You from Buying a Home


Buying a home is considered by many, to be an integral part of the American dream.


But what happens if you have student loans, that means that you aren’t financially capable of buying a home, right? WRONG. Student loans may affect your monthly budget, but there are mortgages available for those with student loans. You still can qualify for a mortgage loan.  


Please take the time to read the linked article shown below as it does a very good job of providing needed information.  


Want to learn more? I am an Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®) in Katy TX, plus professional Realtor and have worked with first time homebuyers to manage their student loans and still be able to afford a home. Please let me know if you have any questions! Contact me and let us get started finding you and your family a home of your own instead of paying another person/company’s mortgage.

The way underwriting is looking at student loans has impacted the home buying business for many. It can be done but it is not as easy as before, Bob.

Great information for buyers who have student loan debt.  Having that  obligation can be a challenge, but it's not impossible to work through in the homebuying process.

So many millenials saddled with student loans have put off buying a home.  It's good that they know there are alternatives.

Thank you for your comments. I think many individuals asddled with student loans which are usually for a large amount of money just give up and rent instead of trying to buy.
