What Down Payment Strategy Will You Use to Buy A Las Vegas Home?

What Down Payment Strategy Will You Use to Buy A Las Vegas Home?

What Down Payment Strategy Will You Use To Buy A Las Vegas Home

You’ve most likely heard the rule: Save for a 20-percent down payment before you buy a home. The logic behind saving 20 percent is solid, as it shows that you have the financial discipline and stability to save for a long-term goal. It also helps you get favorable rates from lenders.

But there can actually be financial benefits to putting down a small down payment—as low as three percent—rather than parting with so much cash up front, even if you have the money available.

THE DOWNSIDE

The downsides of a small down payment are pretty well known. You’ll have to pay Private Mortgage Insurance for years, and the lower your down payment, the more you’ll pay. You’ll also be offered a lesser loan amount than borrowers who have a 20-percent down payment, which will eliminate some homes from your search.

 

THE UPSIDE

The national average for home appreciation is about five percent. The appreciation is independent from your home payment, so whether you put down 20 percent or three percent, the increase in equity is the same. If you’re looking at your home as an investment, putting down a smaller amount can lead to a higher return on investment, while also leaving more of your savings free for home repairs, upgrades, or other investment opportunities.

THE HAPPY MEDIUM

Most borrowers can find some common ground between the security of a traditional 20 percent and an investment-focused, small down payment. Consult with your mortgage professional to give you more details on which option may be best for you.

2 Las Vegas Home Buyer Tips – Las Vegas Home Buying Tips Las Vegas Home Buyer Tips:

 

If you are considering buying a home in the Las Vegas area right now,

 

My #1 Las Vegas Home Buyer Tip is always:

 

Make sure you are PRE-APPROVED to purchase, this is always #1 regardless of when you want to buy a home.  

Las Vegas Home Buying in the Fall

This means you get with a lender/mortgage broker and they “run your numbers”  to let you know how much you can afford to buy and tell you about how much your mortgage payment will be, how much $ you will need for a down payment.  

 

This will require you to provide them with pay stubs, tax returns and they will need to verify your debts too (what else you owe on like a car, student loans, etc)

 

 If you are a “Serious” Las Vegas home buyer, you won’t hesitate to get these things done so that you will be able to provide your REALTOR with a “PRE-APPROVAL letter from your lender/mortgage broker that states how much of a home you can afford to buy so that you can Immediately start touring homes that you will be able to put offers in on.

 

My #2 Las Vegas Home Buyer Tips is:

 

Be prepared to look at homes Under your Max APPROVED purchase price.

 

Why?  Because you may need to leave room to put in an offer that is at or above the sellers asking price in order to get the seller to agree to accept your offer.

 

Right now Las Vegas has a lower supply of available homes for sale and currently the market is seeing multiple offers on many homes and homes going under contract within a few days and sometimes the day they are listed (in some areas).  

If you are ready to jump in and buy a Las Vegas home, then get your Pre Approval letter and lets get you that home!
