You CAN buy a home, and cheaper than renting! Easier than you think!

Real Estate Agent with eXp Relaty

Think you need 20% down to buy a home and is that why you’re renting? What if there was a way to get a 3.5% downpayment or even have someone else pay it?  Did you know there are grants that can cover down payments for certain situations? That you can accept a gift to help with downpayment?  In reality, moving into a new home could cost less than moving to a new apartment.  And in St. Louis, Missouri that is certainly true.


Take for example this #STL #SouthCity #Bungalow, listed at $85,900, this 1300sqft home would be very affordable, with a mortgage around the same or less than rent.  A typical scenario might be a $650-$750 payment, dependent on the terms of the loan and down payment.

Many people who think they can't buy a home should consult with Lynne Hart Herrera. There are so many ways to finance and buy a home.

Lynne, so good to get the word out, and so many renters do think they need lots more for their down payment.   You give your readers some options.

Yes, mortgage payments can be significantly lower in our area too.  People renting are surprised when I show them their mortgage and impounds can be less than their current rent.
