#TaraMTG Tuesdays: How to Buy A Home This Summer With Zero Down (Blog & Podcast!)

DHREA 26/06/2018

(Every Tuesday we feature a blog from one of our fantastic affiliates, Tara Mortgage Services!)

 

It’s true…you can buy a home with no money down! 

If you’ve been toying with the idea of buying a house but the lack of down-payment funds is holding you back, you’re in luck! We’re going to show you how you can buy a home this summer even if you don’t have a penny saved for a downpayment.

No Money Down Home Loan Programs

USDA Home Loan

A rural development mortgage from the USDA is a zero-down loan for low-to-moderate income families. Besides the no money down, you’ll enjoy other perks like a mortgage insurance premium (mip) is that’s lower than most other home loans. There are a few limitations to this loan, mainly the location of the home and your income.

VA Loans

VA loans are for those who are currently serving in the armed forces, previously served and is now a veteran as well as for spouses of veterans.

In other words, if you currently receive or qualify for any benefits from the military, then you’re likely eligible for a VA home loan. In addition to the zero down-payment, you’ll also save money on mortgage insurance because VA loans don’t require it! VA loans are also flexible with credit score requirements. You’ll need a VA certificate so be sure to contact the Department of Veteran Affairs to get yours and contact us to get started with your loan application.

FHA Loans

FHA loans are government-backed with have flexible qualifying requirements similar to VA loans. While you’ll still need a down payment with an FHA loan, the minimum is much lower –sometimes as little as 3.5% of the purchase price!

Here’s a hint for using an FHA loan AND still pay zero down: use gifted funds!

While other loans have limitations as to how much of your down-payment can be gifted, and FHA mortgage allows you to use gifted funds for 100% of your down-payment. When you combine that perk with that of only 3.5% down, you can see how easy it is to buy a home with an FHA loan!

Contact Tara Mortgage Services today to see if you qualify for a zero money down!

Real Estate Investing w/ Alex Deacon: Get Rich At Home In Your Pajamas

DHREA 25/06/2018

 

It almost sounds too easy but that’s where the hard work starts. So much more to it then this but a key part of success in this business.

I have found that my most productive time is analyzing deals from my computer. I can go through thousands of properties without leaving the comfort of my couch on a monthly basis. You will spend 1/3 of your day sleeping, and 1/3 to 1/2 of your day at work. Sprinkle in family, food, fun, and so on, and you will find (as you probably already know) there are not enough hours in the day. You have to get really awesome at being able to analyze properties from home at your computer. You have to limit your time on the road to looking at only the best deals. Here are some really quick points to look for that will help you start to learn this science.

 

1. Pictures speak a thousand words. Never take a seller’s or agent’s word for anything. If they have pics, have them send you as many as possible. A seller will always exaggerate and tell you that the home needs a little TLC, and when you get there it needs a bulldozer.

2. Use Google earth and other technology. I can’t tell my wife this but I am in love with Google earth.

3. At first, stay close to home and or work. If you can get to a property easy, then you are saving time and you already know that area. Don’t stretch yourself at first.

4. Stick to a specific price range and or type of property. Be focused. You can’t be all things to all investments. Know your limitations and figure out what you want to hone in on and keep your head in that game and nothing else.

5. Stay away from a lot of steps. I rarely buy a property that has a lot of steps to get to the front door. Doesn’t mean I don’t ever buy properties like this, but just a good rule of thumb.

6. Stay away from a busy road. Again, I do buy properties on busy roads, but I get them at busy road prices.

7. Get to know the market. “Wow, Alex I never thought of that.” I know sounds easy, but it is extremely hard and you will never master it. You will need to spend thousands of hours looking at real estate, going to seminars, reading books, networking etc.. etc.. But nothing comes easy, and in order to get good at a desktop analysis you have to put in your time and get dirty.

 

I could go on for hours at all the nuances and strategies, but at some point it becomes redundant. You have to start somewhere and get dirty. You can’t be afraid to make mistakes. But at first, every mistake will seem like the end of the world, so start slow and limit your risk. As you grow, you can start to expand and take more risks. The greater the risk the greater the return, but once you start to do a lot of volume and get really good at this game your risk factor will decrease rapidly and your confidence will grow. Just be careful not to get a big head and go too fast…and never get too greedy. Speed kills, greed kills, and pigs get slaughtered.

I get asked at every workshop to do another bus tour. The hurdle of that is finding the time. Plus we can only handle about 20 people per tour to do it right and I end up turning down a dozen or more. I thought that this month we will tour a bunch of my projects and use technology and do it in a nice climate controlled facility. We will tour each r…
