“First Time Home Buyer Challenges in 2016”

“First Time Home Buyer Challenges in 2016”

 

 

I worked with 9 different prospective home buyers last week, 6 of which were first time home buyers. I could do the pre-qualification letters for four of them.

 

The other two will be able to be done in the future. In one case there was a bankruptcy that is 18 months old so we need to wait 6 more months. They did re-establish some credit and the scores will look even better 6 months from now.

 

The other first time home buyer had no credit, paid cash for everything. We are now working on creating 2 additional lines of alternative credit. He has a cell phone in his name, but nothing else. I have now coached him on what else he needs to do. I also have him setting up a couple of credit cards as well. Sure he is a year away but at least he has a plan.

 

There are many like these two individuals with all kinds of issues but unless they are coached on their next steps, they do nothing.

 

Who else do you know that needs my help?
