Still saving for a down payment?

If you're a first time homebuyer, you may qualify for a Washington State loan program that assists buyer's with their down payment and you may be able to get into a home with little up front investment. Ask a Realtor for advice. If you don't have a Realtor, I love buyers and will be more than happy to answer any questions, NO obligation!

Visit the Washington State Housing Finance Commission's website directly at WSHFC.org for details on one of the programs and to find a very good first time homebuyer's workshop in your neighborhood.  The workshops are a requirement of qualification for the loans.

I always recommend that my clients put away the difference between what they are currently paying and think they are able to pay for a home into a savings account each month.  That way they can test how much they can afford and adjust up or down.  Also, by the time of closing they will have a nice little nest egg available to put toward the home or furniture or whatever.
