For Sale by Owner or Agent? Which is best?

In this article, published in the Greenfield, IN Daily Reporter, Samantha Evans discusses a few things to remember about listing a home For Sale By Owner (FSBO) versus using a licensed realtor:<br />

  • Pricing
  • Showings
  • Approving the buyer
  • Paperwork
  • Marketing

We agree with Samantha: Selling a home by owner can require a lot of work and research on behalf of the homeowner, and for working families or people with busy schedules, saving the commission may not be worth the potential headache.

That's why we at Lowe's Flat Fee Realty are here to help make the home selling process easy!

First-Time Home Buyers Continue To Put Down Less Than 6%!

According to the Realtors Confidence Index from the National Association of Realtors, 61% of first-time homebuyers purchased their homes with down payments below 6% in 2017.
Many potential homebuyers believe that a 20% down payment is necessary to buy a home and have disqualified themselves without even trying, but in March, 71% of first-time buyers and 54% of all buyers put less than 20% down.
Ralph McLaughlin, Chief Economist and Founder of Veritas Urbis Economicsrecently shed light on why buyer demand has remained strong,
“The fact that we now have four consecutive quarters where owner households increased while renters households fell is a strong sign households are making the switch from renting to buying.
Households under 35 – which represent the largest potential pool of new homeowners in the U.S. – have shown some of the largest gains. While they only make up a third of all homebuyers, the steady uptick in their homeownership rate over the past year suggests their enormous purchasing power may be finally coming to [the] housing market.”
It’s no surprise that with rents rising, more and more first-time buyers are taking advantage of low-down-payment mortgage options to secure their monthly housing costs and finally attain their dream homes.

Bottom Line

If you are one of the many first-time buyers unsure of whether or not they would qualify for a low-down payment mortgage, contact us and we can set you on your path to homeownership!
