Santa will be making the rounds in Albuquerque soon. Check out below to see Santa sightings for the 2021 holiday season.
Thank you to Homewise for sponsoring this Guide to Santa Sightings.
Homewise is a nonprofit organization that provides the tools you need to become a successful homeowner, all under one roof.
Buying a home is a big decision, and it’s not always easy to know where to begin. One question we often hear is “How do I know if I have enough money for a down payment?” In the past it was typical for lenders to require 20% of the home purchase price for a down payment. These days, you can get into a home for a lot less. There are many options out there, and it’s all about finding the right home loan for you.
Homewise customers generally contribute a down payment of about 2-5%. On a $200,000, that means you would contribute $4,000.
Homewise has a number of programs to help. Currently Albuquerque homebuyers can receive up to $20,000 toward the purchase of a home. This can help you significantly reduce the amount of out of pocket expenses needed to buy a home.
Now is the time to take advantage of programs available through Homewise that can help you become a successful homeowner. Click here to learn more about our programs, or call us at 505.243.6566 to get started.
